    I like the name “Petrograd” the best. I also think it should be the Capital (more intellectual than Moscow).

    Communism has brought over 100,000 million deaths and that is not including China with Mao.
    Stalin regime starved/executed MILLIONs of Russians people.
    Communism is evil.

      Get your facts straight. approx. two million people died in the gulags, around five million died because of the famine, and less than a million died during the Great Terror (popularly know to the west as the Purges).

      Your beloved Germany, under Hitler, killed more Russians than Stalin-ism ever did.

      • too much vodka says:

        Oh, it’s allright then, Stalin can’t be such a bad guy, he is just responsible for the death of only 8 million people – after all, he killed less people than Hitler, so what’s the problem.

    • historian says:

      Math is evil too.
