W. Shedd of The Accidental Russophile writes on how today's Russians perceive Stalin: “The attitude I have witnessed seems to be: ‘Yep, Stalin was bad, but that was a long time ago and what can you do about it? Things are different now … and you, as an American should shut up anyway because you have that Hitler-wannabe George Bush attacking everyone in the world and stealing oil, etc. etc.'”
