As the capitalist restoration in the former USSR wreaks havoc on the lives of the Russian masses, the latter, quite correctly, look back with nostalgia and fond memory to the glorious achievements of socialism under the leadership of Stalin. Even the revisionists of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF), and its leadership, are obliged to pay respect to Joseph Stalin – such is the prestige in which he is held by the Russian masses.
On the 120th anniversary of the birth of Stalin, Gennady Zyuganov, the chairman of the CPRF, placed flowers on his grave and during the ceremony described Stalin as the greatest leader in Russian history, adding that
“Stalin came to power when the country was picking up the pieces and left it as one of the greatest and most powerful states on the planet”.
