252
The Levada Center publishes the results of a survey of public opinion about the attitude of Russians towards the personality of Joseph Stalin. Analysis Studies show that the level of negative perception of Stalin in Russia over the past few years has decreased significantly.


The first question asked to respondents:
To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following judgment: “Stalin is a wise leader who led the USSR to power and prosperity?”


Is Stalin a wise leader or an inhuman tyrant? Data from the Levada Center


57% of respondents answered that they completely agree or generally agree with this judgment. 18% noted their disagreement. The rest did not give a clear answer.

Second question:
To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following judgment: “Whatever mistakes and faults are attributed to Stalin, the most important thing is that under his leadership our people won the Great Patriotic War”?


This was supported by the thesis 64% of respondents. 14% of respondents did not agree with him.

Third question:
To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following proposition: “Stalin is a cruel, inhuman tyrant guilty of exterminating millions of innocent people”?


44% expressed agreement or partial agreement, 26% disagree with the thesis.

Fourth question:
To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following proposition: “our people can never do without a leader of a type like Stalin, who will come and put things in order”?


Here, 33% of the respondents agreed, 37% did not agree, and about 30% abstained from a clear answer.

Noteworthy is the comparison with data from a similar survey in Ukraine (February 2018). There, they know nothing about Stalin: 2% of respondents, 14% refer to the “leader of nations” with admiration, respect or sympathy. With fear, hatred or hostility - significantly more: 42%.

They declared an indifferent attitude to Stalin 31% of Russians surveyed and about the same (30%) citizens of Ukraine.

            "An American cultural attache in the PRC Robert Ford gave a speech at a contemporary art exhibition in Shanghai. During his speech, the diplomat inadvertently criticized ex-USSR head Joseph Stalin. The attache publicly stated his joy that Chinese art has receded from tradition bloody Stalinism and moved to a modern form.

            The saying of the American diplomat did not like the Chinese. After his careless words, five people publicly attacked the politician, threw him to the floor and severely beat him. Only the police who arrived at the scene of the incident could stop the angry Chinese. According to the information portal, Robert Ford had a broken nose, and multiple hematomas from kicking were recorded all over his body. As a result of the injuries, the American attache will spend several weeks in the hospital ....

          You dig into the biographies of those liberals who blame Stalin the most. The bulk are the descendants of the great Leninists, executed and or convicted. Especially among those who came with Lenin and Trotsky. As a rule, Russophobes, who believe that before 1917 Russia was a country of barbarians and keep .. mord, according to the classics of Marxism-Leninism. They hate everything that is connected with Russia before 1917. Believing that without Marx, Engels and Lenin, Russia was never inhabited by people - all were savages or slaves. They write ohinea that they created nuclear weapons and industry, but at the same time they cannot explain the successes of the USA, Japan, India, Germany and other countries where the communist government was not close. Fiercely hated by Russians, read their comments. Pouring combustible tears over Sverdlov, Trotsky, Uritsky and other comrade-in-arms of Lenin. They shout with a cry about the unfortunate Russian people, whom they humiliate in the former Union republics, but forget to say; who created them, how they created them, why they created them, and at the expense of what people. Lenin is praised for having closed historical and philosophical faculties at universities and has banned the teaching of Russian history in schools (Stalin revived). They are proud of the destruction of Orthodoxy and the Cossacks. With enthusiasm, praising the first Lenin Constitution, in which the voice of the shopkeeper in the city was equal to the five votes of peasants (in Russia there were over 90% of the population peasants). In 1936, Stalin corrected these Marxist guys, equalized everyone. They are proud of their red flag, showing everyone how they despise Russia, the Russians and other peoples living in Russia. They write that the flag of the Russian Federation was borrowed in Holland and at the same time they do not bother to look at the flag of Holland, France, Serbia, Croatia ... They don’t know where the red flag came from and what it meant before 1905. In short, the bulk of them, judging by the flag, statements about the Russian people and their history until 1917, the French, Germans, Poles, Latvians, Jews ... but not Russian. People like Kudrin, Chubais, Gaidar ....

                      Vlasov has nothing to do with the processes that gave rise to these figures. You can’t dress everyone who went down the normal path in one piece of clothing, as now all of Ukraine has become addicted to be recorded as fascists.

              The division is somewhat more complicated and depends on many factors and evaluation criteria. For example, the same Stalin can safely be attributed to emperors.

                According to the principles of the principle, Stalin really was the emperor since 1941, concentrating in one hand different positions and powers.

                By 1945, he became emperor in the literal sense: a victorious commander.

                But by no means in the monarchical sense.

What is curious - the US bombed Yugoslavia and Iraq did not dare to attack Eun, even during its de facto sovereignty in the world. Maybe it would be better for Stalin to appoint his son as a successor, he was not without flaws, but he knew how to work.

                    If you look objectively, "from the point of view of an alien," North Korea in all its quirks is no different from the rest of Southeast Asia. Wherever you spit - from Japan to Thailand - everywhere a military dictatorship or monarchy with all the signs of a religious cult and veneration. Or the same thing, but playing the "cult" cargo cult, as in South Korea.
                    Deeply patriarchal societies with a specific oriental culture are everywhere there.

                    The fact that the son should take the place of the father is self-evident there for everyone. Although, in fact, Eun’s power is symbolic, until his personal authority develops, what he is actively engaged in.

                    The US has already tried to bomb Vietnam and Korea itself. A third of the population was killed there (which is why Koreans have such an internal core of patience and intransigence). But they raided themselves in such a way that since then they have attacked only the weakest and most defenseless type of Iraq.

                    Pseudomonarchy or not - nothing to do with it.

            Well, the foal, though .....

            ".... Pouring combustible tears over Sverdlov, Trotsky, Uritsky and other associates of Lenin ....."

            Not tired of the tales of the "sinister, mysterious" Sverdlov? Stupid for 25 years, the Russian people perceive all periods of Soviet history through the prism of the current regime, which is really mysterious, it is not clear who is responsible for what, who makes decisions under the carpet, but it’s interesting. So the period 1917-1921. was the first and only period in history when the leadership lost its mystery, all executive and part of legislative decisions were taken by the Council of People's Commissars, where Lenin was just the chairman with the right of one vote, the presentation of the agenda and the signature on decrees and decrees. In the Army, all orders were issued by the PBC, or personally by Trotsky as Commander-in-Chief. There were no more authorities, including the party one. All, sometimes extreme, statements and resolutions of Lenin were of the nature of personal opinion and were not subject to execution. Sverdlov was not a member of the Council of People's Commissars, had no power at all, only influence in the party, he couldn’t issue any directives that were binding, he could speak out. All decrees and decrees of the Council of People's Commissars, as well as orders for the Army, have long been published and are not secrets; everything else is speculation designed for fools.

              In this case, "documents" of the type "To shoot everyone in Krasnodar!" in 1918 (when there was no “Krasnodar” on the map yet) they were published in print runs a thousand times larger and did not come out of the TV.

              "In 1994 in the former archive of the Politburo, a letter was found of Heinrich Yagoda to Stalin on 27 on July 1935 in which Yagoda reported that Sverdlov’s personal safe had been discovered in the Kremlin’s commandant’s warehouse, which had not been opened for all 16 years since his death. There were gold coins of the tsar’s coinage for an astronomical amount (108 525 rubles), over seven hundred gold items with precious stones, many passport blanks and filled passports addressed to Sverdlov himself and to nobody known, bonds of the tsarist time, etc. " A true Leninist, a true communist.

            Your first time in 1905 came, but could not set fire to the revolution. Helped the Japanese win the war. Then they came to 1917, and as a result of their reign, we lost over 4 million square meters. km territory (although the part was returned, Crimea, but it is very difficult for us to give it). 25 million Russians were thrown into the territory donated by Leninists to nationalists of all stripes. And if you recall the nineties and how the Russians were driven out of these union republics, then you begin to understand that with your arrival the Russians will be shot or hanged completely.

                      Not. Not too much. Historians say so. Memoirs of a foreign ambassador:
                      In her reign, Russia became a European power. Petersburg took a prominent place between the capitals of the educated world, and the royal throne rose to the throne of the most powerful and significant. Such was the glorious nun, with whom I was in the capacity of ambassador.

                      1791, Chancellor A. A. Bezborodko, on behalf of Catherine 2, made a list of the achievements of her reign. And such was composed and looked very solid. The list included:

                      1. Provinces were established according to a new model: 29
                      2. Cities Built: 144
                      3. Conventions and treatises concluded: 30
                      4. Victories won: 78
                      5. Remarkable decrees issued: 88
                      6. Decrees to facilitate the people: 123
                      Total 492 cases.

                      Add to this that lands from Poland and Turkey with a population of up to 7 million were recaptured from Poland and Turkey; and the total population of the empire increased from 19 million people (1762 g.) to 36 million (1796 g.); army with 162 thousand people increased to 312 thousand; fleet with 21 battleships and 6 frigates reinforced to 67 battleships and 40 frigates; the amount of government revenue from 16 million rubles rose to 69 million rubles; the number of factories increased from 500 to 2 thousand; increased import - export of external Baltic trade from 9 million to 44 million rubles; increased import - export of foreign Black Sea (created by Catherine) trade from 390 thousand to 1 900 thousand rubles.

                      Having come to power, Catherine II managed to maintain neutrality in the Seven Years War, stop preparations for the war with Denmark, and weaken and eradicate Prussian influence at her court.

                      The territories of the Black Sea region, the North Caucasus and Crimea were under Turkish rule. In 1768, under a far-fetched pretext (referring to the fact that one of the units of the Russian army entered the Ottoman Empire in pursuit of the Poles participating in the rebellion of the Bara Confederation), the Turkish Sultan announced the beginning of the Russo-Turkish War, which lasted 6 years.
                      However, Russia won the war, and the territory of the Crimean Khanate formally became independent, but in fact fell into dependence on Russia. In addition, under the terms of the peace treaty, the northern coast of the Black Sea went to Russia. The border with the Ottoman Empire was moved to the Dniester. In addition, as a result of skillful manipulations of the empress, who managed to place the pro-Russian ruler on the throne of the Crimean Khanate, the Crimean Khanate also became part of Russia.
                      Prussia and Austria, realizing that Russian influence in Poland had significantly increased, suggested that the Russian Empire carry out the partition of the Commonwealth. The first section took place in 1772, as a result, Russia received part of the Latvian lands and the eastern part of Belarus. The next section occurred after the appeal of the citizens of the Commonwealth to Russia who opposed the adoption of the 1791 Constitution. As a result of the division approved at the Grodno Seim in 1793, Russia received Right-Bank Ukraine and Central Belarus, including Minsk. And finally, after the uprising of T. Kosciuszko, the last, third section took place in 1795, as a result of which the Commonwealth ceased to exist, and Russia expanded its territory through the annexation of Western Belarus, Courland, Lithuania and Volhynia.
                      Kartli-Kakheti Tsar Irakli II appealed to Russia to protect his state from the attacks of the Persians and Turks, and the Empress agreed, sending a small detachment to Georgia. After that, in 1783, the Russian Empire and the kingdom of Kartli-Kakheti signed an agreement ("St. George's Treaty"), according to which the kingdom became a protectorate of Russia in exchange for military protection.
                      In October 1782, Russia signed a cooperation agreement with Denmark. During the Austro-Prussian War (1778 - 1779 gg.), Catherine II acted as an intermediary between the parties, in fact, dictating her terms of reconciliation, and thereby restoring equilibrium in Europe.

          These achievements are about nothing, like an elephant shot and a dead poultice. In the matter of interstate competition, you need to run as fast as you can just to stay in place.

          By the time of our revolution, the Russian Empire lagged behind the advanced countries by more than 100 years: they had revolutions that happened in the 17-18 centuries.

          The last chances for the normal development of the country were profaned by a purulent tsarist regime and its parasitic "elite" back in the 1820s.
          By the 1850s, the empire was already rotten through and through, and this became a clear fact.
          In the 1860s, civil war became inevitable.
          In the 1900s, she was already in full swing.

                      What to do with tsarist statistics on the availability of medical care? The number of doctors and paramedics per 100 thousand and the average distance to the doctor? Elementary literacy, accessibility even to primary education?

              On a large scale, that’s it.

              Revolutions distinguish such:
              1. Neolithic (agricultural)
              2. Slaveholding
              3. Feudal
              4. Bourgeois (capitalist)
              5. Socialist

              When the "partners" had already developed capitalism, Russia was stuck in terry feudalism.

              Quote: Dart2027
              And why then?

              After 1812, Russia bent over Europe - but everything was profaned. Instead of becoming the world hegemon (or at least the second after Britain), its own economy was ruined, ideology went into a deadlock and regressed.
              The Decembrists wanted to correct this trend and didn’t. Their loss meant (within the framework of the ruling elite) the loss of progressive forces and the gain of purely parasitic and degenerate forces.

              By the 1850s, the pro-framing of imperial greatness led to the infamous Crimean War - where European powers bent Russia.

              In 1905, the empire was even more shamefully bent by "some second-rate power".

              And the peasants all this time millions died of hunger and unsanitary conditions, while the "holy" king shot cats and ravens. (And at the same time the same peasants, but did not write about them in diaries).

        Well, don’t really need to spread rot on Tukhachevsky. Not in everything he was right, but his interest in high-speed tanks was a feat in studying endurance of transmission and tanks became able to do long marches. He oversaw the work on self-propelled guns.

          Tukhachevsky was completely incompetent and terribly ambitious. And it seems to be mentally unhealthy.

          Under his strict guidance, the army lost 5 thousand guns - for comparison, there were only 6 (six) guns in the rifle regiment.

          And then the Germans had to stop bottles with gasoline near Moscow.

          What can I say - a genius.

        The question of the number of repressed officers
        The most frequently cited figure in 40 is thousands of people, DA Volkogonov launched it, and Volkogonov clarified that the number of the repressed included not only those who were shot and imprisoned, but also simply dismissed without consequences.
        After him, the “flight of fancy” had already begun - the number of people repressed by L. A. Kirchner is increasing to 44 thousands, and he says that it was half of the officer corps. The ideologist of the Central Committee of the CPSU, the “foreman of perestroika” A. N. Yakovlev, speaks of 70 thousands, moreover, he claims that they killed everyone. Rapoport and Geller increase the number to 100 thousand, V. Koval argues that Stalin destroyed almost the entire officer corps of the USSR.
        What really happened? According to archival documents, from 1934 to 1939, 56785 people were laid off from the ranks of the Red Army. In the years 1937-1938, 35020 people were laid off, of which 19,1% (6692 people) - a natural decrease (deceased, laid off due to illness, disability, drunkenness, etc.), 27,2% (9506) of those arrested, 41,9, 14684% (11,8) were dismissed for political reasons, 4138% (1938) were foreigners (Germans, Finns, Estonians, Poles, Lithuanians, etc.) who were dismissed under the 6650 directive. 1937 people were later restored, were able to prove that they were dismissed unreasonably. In 1938-9579. 1938 commanders were arrested, of whom 1939 were reinstated in 1457-19106; 9247 people were dismissed for political reasons, XNUMX people were restored.
        The exact number of the repressed (and not all were shot) in 1937-1939 - 8122 people and 9859 people dismissed from the army. In 1937, according to Voroshilov, there were 206 thousand command personnel in the army. By June 15, 1941, the number of commanding, commanding officers of the army (without political personnel, the Air Force, Navy, NKVD) was 439143, or 85,2% of the state. In the prewar years, the proportion of officers who received an academic education increased. In 1941, their percentage was the highest for the entire pre-war period - 7,1%, before mass repression in 1936, it was 6,6%.

      No need to carry liberal nonsense, it was not Stalin who planted and shot him, but the court. During the reign of Stalin, about 800 thousand were spread out, only the end of the civil war had to be taken into account - the irreconcilable hands of which were shot in blood, embezzlers, pests were shot. World War II - what had to be done with the traitors (Bandera, Vlasov ...) forgave many and returned after serving time. In the Red Army they also shot, such freaks as Tukhachevsky - a shifter and mediocrity, but for some reason no one thinks how many different people were released after the proceedings, how many were spies. If now, and I believe that it is high time, return the death penalty for corruption, theft of state funds, treason, for wrecking, then half a million in a couple of years will have to be shot.

It’s just that in 1941 the Germans fought better - sadly, but a fact.

    -----------------------------------------
    Historically, Stalin was a titanic figure, he created the world's first socialist industrial state with a nuclear and missile industry, won the hardest war with a united Europe, was the creator of the world socialist system, actively contributed to the collapse of the world colonial system. Under his leadership, the Soviet people became the victorious people. None of the modern politicians can even come close to him. Therefore, the value of this personality is enormous and it will not give rest for another 50 years. And since no one can do anything like this, they try to spit on his affairs. I myself treated him as a historical character, but today I see. that it is more modern than ever. I even ruined the blotheny in the elections by writing his name and regalia- Joseph Stalin, Chairman of the Council of People's Commissars of the USSR, General Secretary of the CPSU (B.), Supreme Commander-in-Chief, Generalissimmus.

      I agree. In the West, memoirs of the former Soviet intelligence officer Alexander Orlov (Leiba Feldbin), who fled from our country at the end of the 30s, having seized a huge amount of government dollars, were published at one time. Orlov, who knew well the “inner kitchen” of his native NKVD, directly wrote that a coup was being prepared in the Soviet Union. Among the conspirators, he said, were both representatives of the NKVD leadership and the Red Army represented by Marshal Mikhail Tukhachevsky and the commander of the Kiev military district, Jonah Yakir.

I’ve been born in the Northern Urals, where my parents weren’t at all out of love for the northern beauties of the Urals (although it is very beautiful there, the memory has preserved childhood impressions).
          And about chips - so the years after the 91st caused damage to far more peoples of the perished Union.
          But such a pace could not be achieved otherwise. And here everything is not as simple as any Svanidze draws for us. The main role in the rapid rise of the country was played by an unprecedented rise in the construction of a new, just system. Like victory in the Great War.

          after the official end of the civil war, another civil war broke out in the country - many drowned their neighbors to raise themselves. This has nothing to do with Stalin - this is the sediment of troubled times left in the souls of people, and the habits of the civil war are extreme cruelty to the smallest detail. Many scolded the NKVD, but remember that the thieves created at that time - they killed easily, in dozens.
          And, by the way, this process also affected Stalin himself - Bukharin, Trotsky, etc. could bury him himself. I have repeatedly thought whether it was possible to somehow escape all this and find nothing better than the government was trying to do.

      Would a person who combines the best qualities of Stalin and Pinochet satisfy you? If instead of Gorbachev the restructuring of the Union were undertaken by a team led by this person, the whole world would envy our achievements.

Now we are reaping the fruits of his kindness. And he made a great country, no doubt about it. As for the tyrant, too, is not everything that the truth has been rubbing to us .. not all are far away.

    Stalin is an apparatchik who destroyed all rivals on the path to sole power. People in his environment were chosen on the basis of personal devotion, and not professional qualities. With him, the country made a leap in development, but the price was paid high. The main thing is that with this method of government, after the death of the authority, leader, father of the nation, the built system gives a crack, because even less competent rulers come to power.
    He was never an ideologist and was guided exclusively by personal motives, first of all, to maintain and strengthen his power.

    In general, these ornate questions are pretty obviously hinted at. Only all these kings and leaders somehow badly for the population ended in our history. But this time everything will work out for sure?

        Are you envious of the mind, or is it a shame for Stalin? Where are the slogans, his path to power, his environment? Or maybe Khrushchev in power is not a consequence of the ill-conceived staffing policy of Stalin?
        Not he could, but people were able to withstand such living conditions, pressure from above and such a pace, though not all. You still say that Stalin won the WWII, an unmistakable option.

          Khrushchev in power is the result of a double coup and not without the help of Zhukov.
          Personnel policy was precisely the strongest part of Stalin’s administration and what he called the "party." Unfortunately, after the arrival of Khrushchev, most of Stalin’s personnel policy mechanisms were canceled.
          I did not understand about envy and war, what was said? But I’ll ask another question: what specific power did Stalin get?
          He had almost no property, property - at least, life was simpler than thousands of USSR citizens. He really had administrative power, but he used it to develop the country, and not his whims. For which he was loved.
          I repeat - read eyewitnesses, what kind of power Stalin had in reality and what responsibilities.

            I wonder what can be strong in choosing only on the basis of personal devotion? Khrushchev was in power primarily due to the fact that before that he had come a long way along the career ladder, which favored people like him.

            Where do the stories about Stalin's ascetic come from, who did everything for the people. Probably from the propaganda of those times. Because there are no other sources for describing the life of Stalin. What does power mean in reality, what limited it? Maybe there were political rivals or popular protests? Or did he wisely limit himself?

            His main whim is to stay in power, to defend himself against an external enemy and an internal one. In accordance with these goals, the country developed. Defense and state security.

    An American culture attache in China, Robert Ford, gave a speech at a contemporary art exhibition in Shanghai. During his speech, the diplomat inadvertently criticized the ex-head of the USSR Joseph Stalin. The attache publicly declared his joy that Chinese art had departed from the traditions of bloody Stalinism and moved to a modern form.
    The saying of the American diplomat did not like the Chinese. After his careless words, five people publicly attacked the politician, threw him to the floor and severely beat him. Only the police who arrived at the scene of the incident could stop the angry Chinese. According to the information portal, Robert Ford had a broken nose, and multiple hematomas from kicking were recorded all over his body. As a result of the injuries, the American attache will spend several weeks in the hospital.

    It is noteworthy that the attackers did not suffer serious punishment. For their misconduct, the Chinese will receive only a fine for hooliganism. The Chinese Foreign Ministry acted no less symbolically - sent an apology letter to the official US embassy in the PRC and recommended that "no more criticize Stalin." This incident and the reaction of the foreign ministry once again shows what political power Beijing has gained in recent years. Today, China is already making recommendations to the United States of America, beating their ambassadors and not fearing a response.

    1. To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following proposition: “Stalin is the wise leader who led the USSR to power and prosperity?”
    -I completely agree.
    2. To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following proposition: “Whatever mistakes and vices are attributed to Stalin, the most important thing is that under his leadership our people won the Second World War”?
    -I completely agree.
    3. To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following proposition: "Stalin is a cruel, inhuman tyrant, guilty of the destruction of millions of innocent people"?
    -Need to compare:
    for example, the democratic states, how many died in labor camps? (for such a question in the USA they planted them before the 60s), how many died in concentration camps, how many from war crimes?
    It has not yet been considered difficult to answer. My opinion is as much as Terrible more tyrant than the kings of France and England in his time.
    4. To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following proposition: “our people will never be able to do without a leader such as Stalin who will come and put things in order”?
    No country can exist for a long time where rulers are preoccupied with stuffing pockets. The Stalin team set tasks and carried them out, who stuffed the pockets of the team being expelled.
