Yes, he oppressed and killed millions
No, he turned the nation from a 19th century peasant country into an industrialized super power
he killed more than Hitler and starved Ukraine
Joseph Stalin had very much power as a leader and it wasn't a democracy at that time. If someone was against him and he didn't like it, he could do what was needed to get them away from his way if he wanted to as a dictator. He didn't get rid of the poverty although he was a communist and he had concentration camps where he lead many people to their death. More people died in his regime than in Hitler, but both was leaders with power and both killed millions of people.
He had total control over his country and used that power to oppress and kill millions of his own people, even more than Hitler. It doesn't matter that the USSR sided with us during WWII; a tyrant is still a tyrant.
"He was a hero of the people and he helped stop Hitler." The only reason why the Soviet Union fought Nazi Germany was because of Operation Barbarossa. Prior to Germany's invasion, Stalin signed a treaty of non-aggression and agreed to invade and split Poland with Hitler.
Stalin was a believer in atheist Dogma, and so was Hitler.
He is a communist every communist leaders are tyrants
Communism killed more people than small pox
He was close evils with Hitler

Joseph Stalin was a Russian Hero who stopped the Famines that had been happening since the Tsar's Rule and Industrialized the country bringing it into the 20th Century. He also only killed around 3 Million most of which were Criminals while most people in Gulags died after leaving the Gulags due to natural causes. Need I remind that Winston Churchill has also killed an equal amount to Stalin except he was the result of a famine and blamed the Indians who he had starved. No Stalin was not a Tyrant he was a Hero who the West has tried to demonize despite it being his leadership that stopped the Nazi War Machine and forced Japan to surrender.
No because he only killed the people (kulaks) that attempted to reject collectivisation by starving out the inner cities. The kulaks where the true enemy no matter the numbers of them that were killed. You dumb individualists only look at the surface not wanting to open the chest fearing that it will destroy your false ideas of democracy and end your inane political feuds for individual power.
No he wasn't, He was a hero of mine
