Abstract

We will examine the views of the country's political and cultural elite as well public opinion on the mass terror in Stalin's time. The authors conclude that public attitudes toward Stalin and the mass repressions are deeply contradictory. It is another powerful indicator that Russia still, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, does not have an ideology that can unite the majority of the elite and the masses. Russian society continues to oscillate between imperial dreams and liberal values, between beliefs in the authoritarian rule and democratic institutions as the desirable future of the country.
