Truman doubted Stalin's motives because he saw the Soviet Union as expansionist and aiming to dominate Eastern Europe. He believed Stalin was not interested in promoting democracy or maintaining peace, but rather in spreading communism and increasing Soviet influence. Truman's doubts were further fueled by Soviet actions such as the occupation of Eastern Europe and the Berlin blockade.
No, Stalin was not a German leader. Joseph Stalin was the leader of the Soviet Union from the mid-1920s until his death in 1953. He was born in Georgia, which was part of the Russian Empire at the time.
Stalin eliminated the old Bolsheviks mainly to consolidate his power and eliminate potential threats to his leadership. He perceived them as a threat due to their prominent roles in the party and their potential influence among the Soviet population. This purge also allowed Stalin to reshape the party according to his ideology and solidify his control over the Soviet state.
The Nazi-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact, signed by Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin in August 1939, was a bilateral agreement between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. It included a public pledge of non-aggression between the two countries, as well as a secret protocol dividing Eastern Europe into spheres of influence. This pact enabled Hitler to invade Poland without the fear of a Soviet intervention, thus triggering the start of World War II.
He fully controlled the Soviet economy.
Yes it did in a very significant and basic way. Karl Marx envisioned a classless society, free of the distinctions and conflicts between the bourgeoisie and proletariat of capitalism. Stalin believed in the Russification of the new Soviet Union. This meant that Russians would enjoy a higher status in society than any other nationality or race such as Muslims and Jews within the Soviet Union.
Even Lenin, who was always willing to let practicality override doctrine in order to stay in power, disliked Stalin's ideas in this area. Social classifications based on nationality and race were directly contrary to what Marx preached.
Marx himself predicted that between the workers' revolution against the capitalist system and the total elimination of all vestiges of capitalism there would have to be a transition period. This transition period would have the difficult job of ensuring that persons still dedicated to capitalism did not force the country back to it. The workers would have to take charge of the government by way of a dictatorship of the proletariat.
According to Marx this would not be a dictatorship such as some "communist" countries turned into. It would be a government of democratically elected officials with the exception that the capitalists would not be permitted to participate in it.
The main adaptation to conditions in Russia was that Lenin did not wait until Russia became industrialized and its peasant farmers turned into exploited factory workers as in Germany. Russia was mainly peasant farmers with little industrialization. Thus it did not fit the model Marx first theorized was necessary for the overthrow of capitalism.
Lenin forced a political revolution first to take control of the government which would then end the capitalist economic system. Marx believed that the workers would seize the economic system and then end the capitalist political system.
Since Lenin's revolution was political rather than economic, his dictatorship excluded all non Communist Party members in favor of Party members (a political distinction). Marx would have excluded capitalists in favor of socialists (an economic or class distinction).
I'm not a specialist in this topic. However, I understand that the kulaks were the individuals who benefited from Lenin's New Economic Policy, during the mid-1920s. They were able to create farms with multiple machinery and animals (yes, I know...sinful...), and were regarded as better-off than the majority of the Russian peasantry (numbering about 82% at the time and suffering poverty and famine on a regular basis).
Stalin regarded this population as contrary to the communist ideal of egalitarianism and economic commonality. He therefore ordered their liquidation, so as to appease those of the peasantry who were jealous, display his unadulterated devotion towards communism, and implement his first Five Years Plan, which represented virtually complete state control over the Russian economy.
Leon Trotsky was murdered in Mexico by a Russian agent sent by Joseph Stalin in 1940.
Sure, they all believed that socialism would solve their nation's woes and killed all their political opponents.
The highlights of the achievements of this Ministry. The allocation of funds for various schemes/programmes for tribal development has been increased from Rs. 630 crore in 1999-2000 to Rs. 810 crore in 2000-2001 and Rs. 1040 crore in 2001-2002, representing an increased of 65% over the year 1999-2000.

it is hotly debated by the left and the right wing if Stalin was a saviour or a mass murderer
firstly his childhood was pretty messed up and violent he was a streetfighter, a pirate, a crime lord and a murderer. as to his "evil" deeds as a politician he pilliged towns in the soviet- polish and Russian cililwar in 1920s. as dictator of the ussr he purged the communist party, the military and the country in the 1930s sending the victims ethier to death or to work camps were they could die. he also started collectivition (neo serfdom of the peasents) in the 1930s which resulted in a famine in the ukcrain and russia, he also killed farmers that didnt fall into line. in WW2 he killed many inocent politicle prisoners, killed poles, deported minorites to siberia and killed German prisoners, he also shot his own soldiers made bad war decions, killed comanders and let his army ravage countries. at the end of the war he rounded up German civillian and made them work in siberia many died, he even reopened some nazi consentration camps and killed polliticle enemies. he also sold weapons to other countries during the cold war. but unlike Hitler it can be argued that all of his crimes helped make the USSR great and increased standerds of living
what they have in common is is that they were all dictators in one place or another Hitler was responsible of the deaths of 6 million Jews Stalin in my case was the good guy and Mussolini he was just a dictator !
u no lifes go and research dont take the easy way out read books
At the end of World War 2, the Soviets either took or were given various countries. These included Czechoslovakia, Poland, and Hungary.
He did help to modernise the country, but it can be argued that he was responsible for the death of up to 20 million people, so it depends which way you read it.
Joseph Stalin specifically was not the classic definition of "racist", wherby one ascribes superiority or inferiority to racial divisions in an organized manner. Yet, his "racism" was just as racially-biased, but more so on social class than on ethnicity. Rather, what Joseph Stalin was averse to, much like his nemesis in Nazi Germany, Adolf Hitler, was an organized economic system predominated by Jewish bankers.
There was this imagined 'boogeyman' of Jewish elites, which both Hitler, Stalin, and even much of the U.S. believed, controlled the world's finances in but a few men.
This concept is why Hitler and Stalin chose their "Socialist" policies to dissolve the economic influence. Like Hitler, Stalin also thought the Jews were a threat to the Communist system, and therefore Stalin's power as the General Secretary.
He felt, in the same way that Adolf Hitler did; that the Jewish populous were 'naturally' inclined to exploit the economic difficulties of others, and his pogroms sought to remove an economic discrepancy he saw as inevitable, if the Jews were allowed to remain wholesale in the Soviet Union. Although Stalin did not see the Jews in the same racially-inferior light as the Fascist Nazi Germany regime, he still classified the Jews in the same 'parasitic-natured' class as where Hitler placed them.
Thus, Stalin killed more Russian Jews than the famed National Socialist dictator in the Third Reich, in pursuit of removing their influence.
Both of them were extremely dangerous and powerful and killed millions of people, tried to destroy world powers, and were engaged in experiments to destroy the West.
Hitler had an enormous control of his party and the German people as a whole. He was arguablly the most skilled orator in the history of the world and could get even the most sensible of people to do terrible things. He had an extremely powerful state police who he sent to intimidate political rivals. Of course, he ordered the Holocaust and killed around 10 million people. He tried to design the first Atomic Bomb (and probably could have managed it if it weren't for a US sabataugeing effort to destroy the Reich's supply of Hard Water).
History books tend to forget the 7 million peoples killed in the 30s by Stalin's secret police. Stalin was brutal, he didn't care if the Germans captured and killed his own son. He succedded in building the Atomic bomb. He was willing to sacrafice the lives of 27 million of his people to cast out the German armies from his lands.
Both were devoted to aquiring more territory for their nation. Hitler started World War 2 to gain territory, Stalin used the war to take over lands in Eastern Europe as well as in Asia. Stalin aided communist revolutionaries under Mao Xing Zong in China to engage in the second most deadly conflict in Human History, the Chinese Civil War.
In all, they were both ruthless and dangerous people. They had support from their citizens and were devoted to spreading their own government. I gave you the facts, you form your own opinion.
Josef Stalin was the Soviet dictator that added to Soviet-American tension. However, he died before the start of the Cold War itself.
Joseph Stalin was the one responsible for industrializing Russia. He did this by scrapping Vladimir Lenin's New Economic Policy in favor of his own Five Year Plans.
The official cause of death was cerebral hemorrhage.
[Improve Answer: ]
On his death certificate, the cause of death is stated as a Cerebral Hemorrhage, internal bleeding to the head. However, at the time of his death, Stalin was in very good health, and Doctors were unable to configure what could have triggered this. After Stalin's death, Nikita Kruschev released classified NKVD documents, which stated that Stalin was not in-fact killed by a Cerebral Hemorrhage, but rather an overdoes of Warfarin, which is Rat Poison, which thins the Blood. His Liver was immensely swollen as he laid on his sofa, if was visible through the back under the Rib-cage. Doctors stated in was a Cerebral Hemorrhage, in fear that if they announced it was poison, the Beria would have them shot. If you read Stalin's medical record online, then it becomes clear. It is heavily suspected he was poisoned by the NKVD Chief Lavrenty Beria, in order to prevent a possible next purge, and to out gain him in power, which he did do, until he was eventually executed in December of 1953.
The cause of death was a cerebral hemorrhage (a stroke).
However, scientists in 2009 found that he had rat poison in his system, which causes a stroke.
For murdering millions the Great Purge, his secret police, rewriting history to place him self as someone whose been everywhere, deportations, famines, and more
