Half of all Russians view Soviet dictator Josef Stalin in a positive light, pollsters said Friday based on the results of a recently released study.
Fifty percent of respondents in a nationwide opinion poll conducted by the VTsIOM agency said their view of the role Stalin played in Russian history is undoubtedly positive or probably positive.
A total of 42 percent of respondents said they want or wouldn't object to having a leader like Stalin at the helm of the nation today.
