 Jerry, you are right. when I was sometime ago in Russia I realised that people entertain a stron nationalism in Russia. It is usually directed toward US America. Perhaps remains of Sviet time. People's admiration of Stalin is not so much about his politics and so on but because he defeated German facism and by this he made Soviet Union one of the great powers of the world.

Prince Alexander Nevsky was voted #1 and Pyotr
Stolypin #2.


These results would seem to indicate a strong
attachment to?nationalism, a

a desire for 'law and order', and a?preference
for a?'strong' leader.


According to a BBC article, more than 50 million
people voted in this poll.


In solidarity, Jerry
