Books About Stalin Everywhere in Moscow

My colleague, Marianna Yarovskaya, sent me these images of a typical Moscow bookstore. Books on Stalin are everywhere. This is part of an official campaign to glorify Stalin's image as a strong and decisive leader who was up to all challenges.

  1. First Putin cleans up Stalin's horrible image and portrays him as a great and powerful leader who brought greatness to the Soviet Union (read that:Russia). Then he slowly morphs Stalin's myth into his own. In the end he is becoming Stalin.
