I live in Finland / Helsinki. When the Soviet Union invaded Finland in 1939, Stalin was the one who hoisted a false flag in Manila. Many Finnish soldiers and civilians died. But we survived. We Finnish people know the Russians very well. It is a historical fact that Russians always fly false flags and try to enslave other nations and peoples. And that is what is happening now in Ukraine. Putin has invaded Ukraine and is trying to enslave Ukraine.
Greetings from Finland
Answer: It is important not to be judged by the leaders of a country. Every country always has left and right and no country enjoys the approval of 100% of its people. Just look at the United States. There are only three presidents who have won with 60% or more of the vote, the FDR first term, Johnson and Richard Nixon after Kennedy’s assassination who promised to end Vietnam. The rest won with just a few points over 50%. Obama won the 2008 election against McCain 52.9%. Lenin even warned Stalin not to take responsibility.
It is wrong for Stalin to judge Russia and the powers that be today that only hate the Russian people and hold Putin responsible for everything. It also needs to be understood that Russia has a left and a right that still exists today, and that Putin is a moderate who, if ignored by the West, would take Russia to the extreme right.
We must understand history because there was always a question about where Russia started and ended and who constituted the Russian people. These questions have been debated by Russian thinkers for centuries after the Russian Revolution, which ended more than 300 years of totalitarian rule. Believe it or not, Putin is not trying to revive the Soviet Union because that was not Lenin’s vision – but Stalin’s.
At first, Lenin was revered as the architect of the new Russia. He was a veteran statesman of the Bolshevik Revolution. Stalin, on the other hand, is what we call neon. He was the leader of an ambitious party with a vision of absolute authoritarian control. The two became embroiled in controversy over their political views on Russia, but also at a personal level, outraged and humiliated. This war proved to be too much for Lenin, which led to his untimely death.
The conflict between the two Russian leaders reached its climax in the last days of December 1922. That was when 2,000 delegates from the entire Russian Empire gathered in Moscow to create a new state that would become the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The vision of this new state was completely different between the two individuals. Ukraine, Belarus and Transcaucasia were republics that were officially independent of Russia. When Soviet Russian Commissioner Georgi Chichrin signed an agreement with Germany in July 1918, in which everyone surrendered their demands for compensation for the war, there was a problem of unity. Ukraine and Belarus were independent before 1919 but were defeated by the Bolsheviks in 1919. They objected to Germany’s pardon.
Ukraine and Belarus have taken that position by the Russian authorities No rights Speaking on behalf of Ukrainians and Belarusians. In Georgia, they also protested that their rights as members of an independent republic had been violated. This was ultimately set at the pace of the birth of the final version of the Soviet Union.
It was in August 1922 when Joseph Stalin set up a special commission to recommend a new political model of relations between the Central Committee of the Communist Party, Russia and the Republic. Stalin’s proposal was called “automation of the republic”, which would formally incorporate the independent republics into the Russian Soviet Federation with the right to autonomy. However, the Russian Federation will formally become the central authority under the independent republics. This led to a revolt against the Georgians and a revolt against Stalin’s model. They were joined by Ukrainians and Belarusians.
This conflict between Lenin’s views on a union similar to the United States model and Lenin’s views on absolute central power led to heated conversations with Felix Dzerzhinsky, who was the head of the secret police and a supporter of Stalin. Stalin and many of his supporters, such as Ordzhonikidze and Jarjinsky, were in fact non-Russian. Stalin was Georgian and Dzerzhinsky was actually Polish. Interestingly, Felix Dzerzhinsky was commemorated at a memorial plaque dedicated to him in St. Petersburg.
But the stroke prevented him from taking any decisive action against them. Two days later, a commission of party officials led by Stalin placed strict restrictions on Lenin’s activities, effectively isolating him. They say the sanctions were designed to prevent Lenin’s health from deteriorating. But they also served a political purpose.
Lenin could not join the Congress and he certainly did not trust Stalin. As a result, the paralyzed Lenin pointed out his famous views on the question of nationality in a document sent to the party leadership. It was a letter entitled “On the question of nationality or ‘automation.On December 31, 1922, he attacked Stalin’s policies criticizing the rights granted to republics by the Union Treaty, deeming them insufficient to stem the rise of Great Russian nationalism. Lenin called the threat “Anarchy of great power“Lenin saw these people as non-Russians whom he did not trust and feared for the future of the Russian people.
Lenin believed that Stalin, who was not Russia, posed a great threat to Russia. He saw Stalin’s dream of the USSR as a threat to the unity of the state, which he was right. Lenin’s idea of a union of independent states would allow local autonomy to survive, taking into account their local customs. Lenin was ready to replace it by proposing a loose association of states with centralized powers, primarily to be limited to matters of defense and international relations. Lenin also maintained that republics should retain the right to secession in order to prevent Stalin’s central authority.
I highly recommend watching the Mr. Jones movie. When this will happen No. Show the war between Lenin and Stalin, it will show the cruelty of Stalin that Lenin feared. But Stalin was No. A Russian, but since then he has tarnished the reputation of all Russians. It is ironic that Stalin was a Georgian, located in the Caucasus on the Turkish border where they hated the Russians for Stalin’s oppression.
So, as you can see, this is a very complex issue. Putin is not a follower of Stalin where there are others behind him. So we have to be very careful about what we want in order to change the regime. They may even know this and want a change of government to ensure war. Really very interesting. We should not judge Putin by Stalin or all Russians. This is the propaganda of the neoconservatives who are still fighting against Stalin.
