Absolutely disgraceful for modern Russia! Joseph Vassarianovich Dxogashvilii was a cruel, malicious, and vindictive dictator whose childhood was shaped by constantly watching his drunken unemployed father beat his helpless mother on daily basis. In addition to despising his father for violently abusing him and his mother, his shame of watching his mother labor in rich Georgian Jewish homes as a servant inflamed his pathological hatred for the Jews. His virulent anti Semitism was responsible for arresting, deporting, and eventually executing Jewish members of his Stalinist Politburo. After the Second World War, Stalin had extensive plans for deporting Russian Jews to Siberia. When he died, cattle cars which were on stand by for deportations from Moscow rail station were given an immediate stand down and quickly dispersed throughout the Soviet Union. The Politburo could not ignore the fact that millions of Soviet Jews were murdered in cold blood by the Nazis and thousand more Jewish lives were lost fighting for the Soviet Union!

I agree that Stalin was cruel dictator. However Hamik Gregory, like unfortunaly many other Jews, completely forgets that in addition to thousands of Jews Stalin murdered millions of Ukrainians, Russians, Poles and others. He also forcefully relocated whole nations (e.g. Crimean Tatars).

Sick! Just ask the millions of victims of Stalin. There's something very wrong with the Russian psyche to let this happen.

Stalin was absolutely innocent of Russian blames (except human errors all people capable of) - all the crimes that Russia did since 9 Century ID and still doing it, blaming it on their victims.<br />Such escape goats were forged by Russia through history.<br /><br />Also, former officers of mutinous Siberian divisions, generals and government of Russia, if alive, and their families still afraid of blame, being guilty in helping rise of Hitler to power, crystal night of USSR in 1936-37, coordinated with nazi Germany, disarmament of Soviet armies, crimes against non-Russian nations and minorities and many other evil deeds - they are lying for survival and blame it on Stalin. <br /><br />Also, new usurpers of Russia of &quot;Varangians&quot; and &quot;Germanica-Inferrion&quot; and &quot;Prussians&quot; of Russia, by plot of 1954 with Bechtel family and the Queen, trying control new Russia and resurrect colonial empires - they blame it on Stalin - to expand and to stay in power and they are paranoid - if truth would be known, what would happen to them?<br /><br />Konstantin.<br />
