During the great, purges of the late 1930's the Ukraine became a particular problem, with strong nationalism and opposition to the Moscow government developed there. The Kremlin needed a trusted man in the Ukrainian capital at Kiev to complete the purge of the opposition and clean up the pieces afterwards.
