The victims of Stalin's repressions were not innocent

Summary of Disinformation

The victims of Stalin’s repressions of 1937-1938, were mainly people who were themselves arresting and shooting, torturing and killing innocent people earlier in 1933-1934.

Disproof

According to the data released by Russian human rights center Memorial, 7-8 million people were arrested and over 1.5 million were shot throughout the Soviet Union in 1936-1938. Most charges were fabricated. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation aims to cover up the crimes committed by the Soviet union.
