Vyacheslav A. Malyshev, one of the Soviet Union's top engineers and planners, was relieved of his post as minister of transport machinery and heavy machine building in a major government change in 1953. Malyshev, a former deputy premier, was considered by Western authorities to be one of the most important men in the Soviet Union because he has held key posts in the development of the Soviet industrial war potential.

The announcement that Malyshev had been replaced by Ivan Isidorovich Nosenko was made in the newspaper Evening Moscow on 14 July 1953. What happened to Malyshev was not revealed in the dispatch. Nosenko (19 April 1902 - 2 August 1956) was a Soviet politician and from 1939 until his death in 1956. He was People's Commissar for Shipbuilding of the USSR.

Ivan Isidorovich Nosenko was the father of notable Soviet defector and KGB officer, Yuri Ivanovich Nosenko. In late January 1964 Yuri Nosenko contacted CIA and soon defected. Two years earlier, Nosenko – a mid-level KGB officer – volunteered to work for the CIA as an agent in place. Nosenko made a startling disclosure: he had been assigned to watch Oswald during his defection to the Soviet Union (1959-1962). Nosenko said the KGB declined to work with Oswald after determining he was unstable.

The Nosenko case had been acontinuous point of contention between the Agency’s CI Staff and the peopleresponsible for recruiting and running operations against the Soviet Union. The case clouded the bona fides of other Soviet defectors and in-place sources and contributed to the internal questioning by the FBI of the validity of their sources.

Nosenko contradicted Angleton's key source on the KGB, defector Anatoly Golitsyn. Golitsyn asserted that the Soviets had a mole inside the CIA. Golitsyn also claimed that Nosenko was a disinformation agent sent both to discredit him and to hide Moscow's hand in President Kennedy's death. Despite being detained for more than three years, Yuri Nosenko never changed his story. Nosenko was eventually released and compensated.

After the scandal with his eldest son, Yuri, the captain of the KGB, who went to the West in 1964, the name of I.I.Nosenko was removed from encyclopedias, bust dismantled factory, street and village renamed. Today in the Ukrainian city of Nikolaev, which has long lived and worked I.I.Nosenko, his name is almost forgotten.
