    Truly horrific.
    "Dozens of new pits have been discovered in a notorious Stalin-era execution site outside Moscow where more than 10,000 political dissidents are believed to be buried, the Kommersant business daily reported Thursday.
    The existence of the mass grave in southwestern Moscow’s district of Kommunarka became known when the KGB opened its archives, before abruptly closing them, in the last days of the Soviet Union. Its successor, Russia's FSB, estimates that up to 14,000 people were shot and thrown into mass graves at the Kommunarka firing range between 1937-1941.
    Searches that began in 2018 using ground-penetrating radar and an archival Nazi bomber pilot’s photograph of the area had uncovered 87 burial pits. Kommersant reported that archeologists have now discovered 47 additional pits, bringing the total to 134.
    “The work on systematizing the list of those executed and correlating it with the discovered pits is still ahead of us,” said Roman Romanov, the head of Moscow’s Gulag History Museum which co-led the investigation.
    The Memorial human rights group has opened an information center containing a database of 6,609 Kommunarka firing range victims, including members of the Communist Party elite, diplomats and counterintelligence agents. According to its information based on FSB archives, almost the entire government of the former Soviet satellite country of Mongolia and many Baltic officials were executed there.
    Kommunarka was one of three Moscow killing fields used by Stalin’s secret police in the 1930s. The other two include the Donskoye cemetery and Butovo about 5 kilometers south of the Moscow Ring Road, where historians estimate at least 30,000 people were executed during Stalin’s Great Terror in 1937-1938."

    Poor Kai-Petri,
    You're one of the latest Stalin victims: your Russophobia is eating your guts. You're already a menthal ruin. Just look what crap you're talking.

    Did not even try to speak any sensible words or sentences to me. Totally Lost control in the first sentence when started posting. Did not even see me referring to the source above, it was just my fault anyway. Must have waited for that moment like a Wolf in the forest. Hope it was worth it....goodbye!

    Thank You all! Together we are strong. We shall not let them scare us. Together we shall win this 'war' that they think we are losing. Not so.
