    Biography Konstantin Umansky was born on Mai 14, 1902 in Mykolaiv in the Ukraine, as the son of Abraham Umansky and Teresa Goldstern. The first years of his life, his family lived in Baku, where his father worked as an engineer for the Oil company till he died in 1913. After the war his mother emigrated to Munich and later to Vienna. He began to study History of Art in 1918, and joined the Russian Communist Party (Bolsheviks) in 1919, returning to Moscow.
    From August to October 1922 Umansky worked in the People's Commissariat of Foreign Affairs. His ability to learn new languages, of which he was said to be able to learn a new language in a month, and spoke Russian, French, Italian, German and English, gained him a position with the Telegraph Agency of the Soviet Union as a correspondent, which took him abroad to places including Rome, Paris and Geneva. Working for TASS from 1922–1931, there were rumours that his career in journalism was mixed with secret police activities, but Umansky refused to answer questions on this subject, stating only, "It is beneath my dignity to answer such a question."
    From 1931 to 1936 Umansky worked in the Press and Information Department of the Soviet People's Commissariat of Foreign Affairs, first as its Deputy Head, and then as its Head.
    In 1936, Umansky was posted to Washington, D.C. where he was an Adviser at the Soviet Embassy. When the diplomatic mission of Alexander Troyanovsky was completed, Umansky acted as chargé d'affaires of the embassy, when on 11 May 1939, Umansky was appointed by Joseph Stalin as Ambassador of the Soviet Union to the United States and he presented his Letters of Credence to U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt on 6 June 1939, becoming, at the time, the youngest Ambassador in Washington, D.C..
    Upon his return to Moscow, he worked at the People's Commissariat of Foreign Affairs. In June the same year a catastrophe hits the family. Nina Umansky, their 14 years old daughter, is murdered by a young man, supposedly a case of desperate "love". But rumors indicating a political background never ceased since then.
    Promoted to the diplomatic rank of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary on 14 June 1943, Umansky was appointed by Stalin on 17 June 1943 as Ambassador of the Soviet Union to Mexico. Umansky presented his credentials to President of Mexico, Manuel Ávila Camacho on 22 June 1943. At the ceremony of the presentation of credentials, Umansky presented his speech in English, for which he apologised to Camacho, promising that he would learn Spanish; which he became fluent in just three months later. The reasons for the posting of a diplomat the calibre of Umansky to Mexico was unclear, and it had been suggested on numerous occasions that Umansky was posted to Mexico as part of undercover activities, however, TIME noted that Umansky's behaviour as a diplomat was always above reproach.
    It has also been suggested that Umansky was posted to Mexico as part of a campaign to improve perceptions of the Soviet Union, which had taken a battering following the murder of Leon Trotsky in Mexico in 1940. According to Germán List Arzubide, Umansky was the most popular diplomat in Mexico. Due to the efforts of Umansky, by the end of 1944 Soviet–Mexico relations had regained a friendly character, and both countries intended to expanded their relations in the post-war period.
    On 8 July 1944, Umansky was appointed as Ambassador of the Soviet Union to Costa Rica, in concurrence with his posting in Mexico. On 25 January 1945, Umansky was to have travelled to San José in Costa Rica to present his Letters of Credence to Costa Rican President Teodoro Picado Michalski, however the Mexican Air Force plane which he was aboard crashed on take-off in Mexico City, killing the Ambassador, his wife (Raisa Umanskaya) and three embassy officials. The cause of the crash is still unknown to this day, and following the crash tens of thousands of Mexicans paid their respects to Umansky at the Soviet Embassy, led by President Camacho. In an obituary, Mexican newspaper Excélsior wrote "With Umansky, a new era in local diplomatic activity has begun. Many foreign diplomats have passed through Mexico, but those whom were here at that time, should recognise that they lived in the diplomatic world of the Umansky era".
