Vladimir Putin has made unlawful all published mention of the cruelties Stalin's regime inflicted on its own citizens - including executing an estimated 300,000 soldiers for alleged desertion or cowardice - in order to prevail during World War II. Books by Antony Beevor and Max Hastings are banned in Russia because they describe the Red Army's campaign of rape and pillage in Germany. See more »
