Then why were you continually talking about western propaganda in relation to the war?
because there is a western propaganda in relation to the war. they would be nuts not to take the opportunity they have today when we have fucking pussies for leadership here in russia to try and re-wise the outcome of ww2 in their favor and shift the blame.
I distinctly remember you saying that Stalin's victims weren't nearly as numerous as 'western historians' would lead me to believe. Or I must be turning schizo.
i distinctly remember numerous people on these forums saying with absolute certainty, even presenting sources, that stalin killed about as many people as hitler. i don't think you were among them, but still it's complete bollocks even if you only look at numbers and disregard all the specifics of the time and situation.

Well you see people who died in gulags or other non-related deportations / executions weren't exactly documented all that much because it doesn't serve much of a purpose.
what? you know what would happen in ussr if you destroyed one its most important resources and didn't document that? i bet you can guess.
