Иосиф Виссарионович Сталин


An elderly man holds a red flag as he stands near a portrait of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin during a rally in Stalin’s native town of Gori, some 80 km from the capital Tbilisi, on March 5, 2013, to mark the 60th anniversary of Stalin’s death. Russia marks today 60 years since the death of Stalin with attitudes split about whether to view him as a tyrant who slaughtered millions or a national saviour who helped turn the country into a global superpower that emerged victorious in World War II.
