For the first installment of our series marking thirty years since the fall of the Soviet Union, we ask the question: is Stalin making a comeback? Since 2014 and Vladimir Putin’s annexation of Crimea, statues and busts of the Soviet dictator have been appearing all over Russia. Meanwhile, many of the details concerning the crimes committed by his regime remain unknown, with archives in large part still closed.

These measures have been wildly popular with some but less so with others, especially in Eastern regions that suffered from the capitalist transition. Gulliver Cragg reports from the Donbass.
