    That must be a idealized drawing of one of Putin's wet dreams.

    Oh, please. The rise of Stalin's popularity in Russia has been in the news for years.

    Have you read/seen the actual polling data these articles are referring to?

    My sister in law is a high school history teacher in St. Petersburg. They don't exactly sing the man's praises as part of the curriculum.

    If there is a "rise in popularity" it is among those dissatisfied with the current situation.(current meaning since the collapse of the Soviet Union) Russia has a lot of problems and communism has always been an easy sell to those who have nothing.

    It's a preferable outcome, yes, Mr. Putin.

    And for that we do not love Stalin? Personality controversial, but he did for Russia is not enough.
