Joseph Stalin (1878-1953) was the leader of Russia during the WWII. He would stop at nothing to get absolute power and to do so he started the Great Purge (1937-38), a policy of killing anyone who threatened his power. He made a deal with Hitler (1939) to split up their spheres of influence in Eastern Europe when WWII began. Russia became a part of Allied Forces in 1943 when Hitler attacked them.
Whether it was the mass movement of ethnic minorities among Russia’s territory or the purging of his own people, Stalin is widely considered to be the most ruthless dictator in history.Anything between 20 and 60 million people were killed during his tyrannical rule of the USSR. Whether or not he killed more or less than Mao, he started the trend for Communist repression. Paranoid, Stalin would murder or detain anyone who bad-mouthed him.
