while Hitler and his racial theories were far more sinister in this respect. And it was Hitler, not Stalin who brought the death of 60 million people as the result of the WWII.

(But anyway, if you want to educate yourself on this subject, you are better off to check with the history forum)

Yes he did.
He was not in any way a head of democratic state, but a ruthless dictator, who was watching out for the interests of his state. Once he knew that the alliance with traditional allies of Russia - France and England - was not going to work out ( he tried to hold negotiations with them BEFORE turning to Hitler you know,) and once he realized ( after Munich agreement) that all these countries were doing was appeasing Hitler ( I am pretty sure he was aware that Poland took part in partition of Czechoslovakia as well,) he did the next logical thing under the circumstances; signed the pact with Hitler and took as much territory as he was allowed to, because history showed that those vast territories played an important key factor for Russia's security and survival.

According to my observations, it's the other way around.
The radical right wing with their desire to "bring the order" is closer to Stalin's nature than the left wing.

Apart from being a mannic and sick sociopath, he was an atrocious leader. The fact that he won the war was due to: Russian people, Cold Weather and the extension and magnitude of the USSR.

Not really, that must be in Russia.
Our homegrown commies are still Stalinists, they wept during years when he died.
In fact, the only thing they share with Stalin is caviar.
