#1 ...When the Soviets Russians want to do something, they will find any excuse to do it. This sounds like one of those excuses.

#5 I think the subtext here is that Russian historians and academics are being very frank about the Russian/Soviet past, and in so doing are insisting that the historical record reflect the truth, not just what western academics say it is.

You'll read in the text a direct reference to Solzhenitsyn, whom many Russians claim flat out lied about the Soviet historical record. It is worth pointing out that a tiny fraction of Solzhenitsyn's works have been translated into English, and I s'pect there's a very good reason for that.

Most of you probably missed it, but also there is a subtle reference to the Soviet journalist Vasily Grossman, a personal favorite Russian writer, who did suffer greatly under the Soviets for his written works.

As I have said this on Facebook, but some amazing, positive things are happening in Russia, and this bit of research is part of the cost of moving those things forward.
