Nikolay held Joseph Stalin in high esteem. However, his increasingly open opposition to [[atheism]] put him at odds with the Soviet leadership under [[wikipedia:Nikita Khrushchev|Nikita Khrushchev]]. In 1960 he was dismissed from the position of the Chairman of the External Church Relations Department and later left the position of Metropolitan of Krutitsy and Kolomna.
