18. i thought it was the opposite that happened

where the end of the cult of personality is what led to the rise of the bureaucracy. the soviet bureaucracy was living on the edge of a knife under stalin. after his death they grew a spine, had stalin's close associates expelled from positions of power or executed (e.g. beria), denounced stalin to the world and blossomed into the nomenklatura.

i could be mistaken though.
