    Josef Stalin 60 years after his death

    Josef Stalin 60 years after his death

    Soviet ruler Joseph Stalin who died 60 years ago this week, has been ranked as the most evil leader in world history. He was General Secretary of the Communist Party from 1922 until his death in 1953 – and estimates of the total number murdered under his reign range from 10 million to 60 million. Stalin's legacy is still a contentious subject in Russia. The Volgograd Government's recent decision to officially re-name the city 'Stalingrad' on six days each year has renewed debate on the topic. Lorcan Clancy explored Stalin's cult of personality and his complicated reputation in Russia today.
