Russians again confess "Stalinist imperialism." That is how things are under Putin, some Western analysts say.

Comrade Lenin is now criticized for Soviet “authoritarianism,” but Lenin’s struggle against Russian and Western imperialism is underestimated. "InoTV" material magazine "The Wire".

The fact is that after the collapse of the USSR and the Yeltsin era, Russia did not return to the “anti-imperialist legacy of Lenin”, but to “Stalin’s imperialism aimed at genocide,” Rohini Hensman reports in The Wire.

Lenin was a champion of the liberation of the peoples of the Russian Empire, and in this he was supported by the majority of the leaders of the Bolshevik Party. But many were opposed, and the first was Joseph Stalin.

The policy of Stalin, in the opinion of the author of the publication, turned out to be the “complete opposite” of Lenin's policy. “In 1930-ies, Stalin committed massacres of the Ukrainian intelligentsia and clergy and forcibly seized the grain from the Ukrainian peasants, which led to the death of millions,” quotes Hensmann, “InoTV”.

American historian Timothy Snyder recalls that “in the period from 1943 to 1944. Karachays, Kalmyks, Chechens and Ingushs, Balkarians, Crimean Tatars and Meskhetian Turks were completely relocated - those who could not leave were killed, their villages were burned to the ground. ” In addition, the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact had a “strong imperialistic orientation,” and Stalin himself “was an effective accomplice to the Nazis during the first two years of World War II.”

Later, after the Yalta Conference, “subordinate to Moscow regimes” were established in Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Albania and East Germany. And this model looks like “American imperialism with the establishment of the power of friendly dictators and military intervention in the event of a threat of overthrow of the regime,” Hensman believes.

Next in the Soviet stories Mikhail Gorbachev appeared. This man tried to return "to Lenin's anti-imperialism." But he did not succeed, because the Stalinist hawks staged a coup and put Gorbachev under house arrest. This strengthened the power of Boris Yeltsin and (paradox) accelerated the collapse of the USSR.

And now Vladimir Putin has returned to “imperialist politics”. According to the author, he began "with a cruel war against independent Chechnya," and ended with "the annexation of the Crimea."

The author’s conclusion: Lenin’s anti-imperialist legacy has been completely “repressed”.

Curiously, we note that one of the key figures in the return from “Stalinism” to “Leninism”, Western experts find Mikhail Gorbachev. However, this general secretary-president was prevented: Yeltsin, in a “paradoxical” way, engaged in the collapse of the USSR, and Putin inherited not the Leninist historical line, but the Stalinist one.

However, the story is the story that she studies the past. Futurists look into the future - and for the most part their predictions are unsuccessful. Let us see how Putin’s role in the history of Russia and the world’s historians of the future will be assessed. To consider him a kind of receiver of Stalin's ideas is at least amusing. With the same success, it can be argued that Russia of the 21st century is leading the people to communism, fighting against religious prejudices and defending the rights of working people all over the world.

        The conclusion of the (foreign) author: Lenin's anti-imperialist legacy is completely “crowded out”.

        A foreign “storyteller” can “reason” and write whatever he wants about RI / USSR / RF, because he does not live in Russia and is not accountable to her! You can’t shut his mouth with a rag from a distance.

                  Putin is a Chekist. Not everything he says should be true. Liberalism is a political and philosophical doctrine that advocates reducing government interference in the life of citizens. On the other hand, Putin is strengthening statehood and governance mechanisms in the state. But he is trying to teach citizens that no one will fight for their rights for them. Therefore, we slurp capitalism, but do not choke. It’s just a process of educating people. It is instructive to exhort, as the Communists did, to no avail. The 91st showed. So it is necessary for the population to be vaccinated - to pass on all the rakes, after removing all sharp objects. As the bumps are filled in half force, they themselves will guess what needs to be done. Wise policy. But Putin’s century may not be enough ..

            The article’s author’s eco hooked, in fact, Stalin struggled with world imperialism, and here he was recorded in the imperialists. The American historian M. Tauger, who showed a true picture of the famine of 1932–1933 on the Holodomor, has: 1) in 1932 there was a very severe crop failure that led to famine; 2) the crop failure was caused by an unusual combination of a variety of reasons, among which drought played a minimal role, the main role was played by plant diseases, the unusually wide spread of pests and grain shortages associated with the 1931 drought, rain during sowing and harvesting; 3) the crop failure led to a severe famine, which spread not only throughout Ukraine, but practically throughout the USSR, especially in the North Caucasus and the Volga region; 4) the Soviet leadership, and in particular Stalin, failed to obtain information on the extent of the famine; 5) because of the drought of 1931, Stalin and the Politburo did not have reserves of bread, but did everything in their power to reduce human losses from hunger, and took all measures so that hunger would not be repeated; 6) the role of resistance of the peasants of collectivization and the role of lack of draft power in the occurrence of hunger were greatly exaggerated in previous publications.

        Further in Soviet history arose Mikhail Gorbachev. This person tried to return "to Leninist anti-imperialism". But nothing came out of him, because "Stalinist hawks" staged a coup and put Gorbachev under house arrest. This strengthened the power of Boris Yeltsin and (paradox) accelerated the collapse of the USSR.

      Yes, everyone there is violet to Russia - except for a couple of dozens of populists of politicians who make a name for themselves on the board.
      Just kick Russia, has become an indicator of loyalty in the political elite of Europe.

      But about the common people, this is not to say - they have enough worries even without distant Russia.
      Some Westerners, of course, are also subject to propaganda, but much less so than in Russia — nevertheless they are used to the fact that politicians “feed” the population with “correct propaganda,” while in Russia many people eat “political propaganda” for the truth.

    All verbiage for the sake of this phrase:
    "Was an effective Nazi accomplice during the first two years of World War II."

    Then “2 years” will disappear, the next step will be to replace the “accomplice” with the “culprit” and the goal will be achieved.

    Under Stalin, the country's resources went into its development, factories were built, education and medicine were free and accessible, and under Putin, the main source of budget revenue was the sale of oil and gas over a hill.

      More precisely: the review provided at VO is good, but the reviewed materials are bad! But at the expense of delirium ... The fact is that quantity has the property of turning into quality! The number of such publications is growing statistically - and, accordingly, leads to the formation of public opinion. In fact, such materials, and to the heap and scandals with WADA with varying degrees of obsession and delusionality, there is preparation for the WAR. The present war. By the way, the writer (including) Sergei Anisimov well disclosed this topic in the trilogy "The Day Before Tomorrow"

        I agree with this, the situation around us is getting closer to a war of one kind or another. They hope that after the start of the database we prefer to give up. That's what they are preparing public opinion in Russia (or rather trying). But we don’t want to give up and it will start .... As they said? Every hundred years, they try Russia for strength? It looks like the time has come ...

    It seems that any action aimed at protecting the national interests of Russia causes a form of hysteria in the west ... There is one peculiarity ... if they scold us, then we are doing everything right ...

    Correctly we can that the originality of the people is preserved ... but the fact that our bar had a falling out with the bars of the other side, it just happened. Someone turned out to be greedier than the opposite side wanted \ allowed. The people simply turned out to be the most guilty of all, from all sides ... because he, the people, wants to live normally! At the moment, the alternatives are seen as very foggy, and therefore it is necessary to support, although not for the sick people, but their own bars !!!

    No, well, I understand that their education is even worse than ours! But to be so ahem short-sighted like this Hesman, this must be managed. But where is Putin and where is Stalin! The greatness of the figures is not even close comparable and not in favor of Putin.

    Russians again profess "Stalinist imperialism." Yes, that’s okay.
    The West professes "Hitler fascism" again! What will we do with the West?

    Responsibility for the expulsion of peoples lies with Suslov! He just in a crowd of people evicted. And he needed to understand the problem. In addition, Stalin was against such a person in such matters and directions. When he was appointed to international affairs, Stalin, learning about this, demanded his removal, since he did not even know a single language. But Stalin was sick from the fall of 45 and was on sick leave for 8 months. He survived 3 strokes and died from 4! Historian Yuri Zhukov!

      Much has been said about the expulsion of peoples. However, with a careful examination of this dramatic (and tragic as well) topic, it becomes clear that under it it had severe grounds. Collaborationism among individual representatives of the deported peoples, multiplied by the peculiarities of mentality (clan system, mutual responsibility ...) when applying the legislation then in force, would lead to the expulsion of a huge part of these peoples to the camps. A balanced decision was made - to relocate peoples. This decision was tough, but more sparing
