Dr Maltsev on history of Kremlin Propaganda

Today I have a presentation on Soviet – Finnish War by a student in my Political Economy class. I am reading her paper and amazingly enough Stalin’s arguments for the war are almost word to word to Putin’s in his anti-Ukrainian campaign. Fighting Finnish fascism, need to protect Soviet borders, liberation of Russian/Karelian speakers, etc.

    That unless he fears FSB would snatch student and send to Siberia?
