Although I don't know about the claim that Khrushchev identified himself as an Ukranian due to him being born in the Kursk region of Russia I agree with the rest of your statement. He did indeed spend a decent amount of time as the head of the Ukrainian Communist party and as such, it is easy to assume that he grew at least some connection to the region. Thank you for your insight!
