This is the problem with meaningless generalizations. 
 
With great shame I have to admitt that there were some with Feliks Dzierżyński (Felix Edmundovich Dzerzhinsky), nicknamed "Iron Felix" as the most important one. But he was and is considered as villain in the history of my country. And he was the only one that played an important role.


Feliks Dzierżyński (co-creator of the Cheka)
Stanisław Redens (brother-in-law to Stalin, held high positions in the Cheka, during dekulakization and the repressions (purges)).
Stanisław Kosior (First secretary of the Communist party in Ukraine)
Karl Radek (Polish/Jewish Marxist)
Wiaczesław (Wacław) Mężyński (People's comissar for finance/ Chairman of the OGPU (Cheka))
Henryk (Genrikh) Jagoda (Head of the NKVD; this one can go both ways, although born in Russia he spoke fluent Polish and the region he was born in used to be Polish 'Kresy', Bobrujsk)
Mieczysław Gil (Lenin's bodyguard and driver)
Gleb Krzyżanowski (one of  Lenin's closest friends; played a leading role in 'electrifying' the USSR (GOERLO plan), First chief of Gosplan. He also wrote the Russian text for the Polish revolutionary song, "warszawianka")
Wacław Worowski (One of the first Soviet diplomats: diplomatic representative to scandinavia)
Aleksandra Kołłątaj (Also a soviet diplomat; first ever female in government)
Jakub Hanecki ( Chief of the central Soviet bank 1918-1920; he also helped Lenin move around in Poland before the revolution)
Józef Unszlicht ( another co-founder and worker of the Cheka)
Andrzej Wyszyński (General procurator of the USSR 1935-1939)
Konstantin Rokossowski (Marshal of the Soviet Union, Marshal of People's Republic of Poland; led the victory parade alongside Zhukov. Played a big part in the Defense of Moscow and in Stalingrad, where he accepted Von Paulus' surrender)
Jan (Ivan) Czernichowski ( two-time hero of the Soviet Union )
Jan (Ivan) Jakubowski ( decorated Soviet Marshal )
Wanda Wasilewska ( Novelist and political activist; her father was a close associate to Piłsudski; she was and advocate of having Poland become a member state of the Soviet Union.)

I missed some, but these are the big ones. I didn't even mention the 'Khrushchev version' of Stalin's ancestry...Shocked
