Another myth is that Stalin was a poor commander in chief. Contrary to the report of Khrushchev about the psychological depression of the leader and his absence in the workplace at the beginning of the war in the early days of the fascist offensive, Stalin was in his office. Moreover, he refused to evacuate to the rear and in the most dangerous periods. At the same time, the commander in chief took an active part in the planning of military operations, including those that became devastating for the Nazis near Stalingrad and the Kursk Bulge.
Another misconception was the accusation of Stalin in religiosity. Some "concessions" for the Russian Orthodox Church on the part of the Soviet government at that time were necessary to counter German plans, which implied the use of the Russian clergy during the war. At the same time, there was no talk of any change in the political vector in favor of religion.
The next myth is the statement that Stalin was a Russian nationalist and anti-Semite. That is exactly what the opponents of communism say. However, if we turn to history, it becomes clear that along with the Russians, other peoples of the USSR prospered. At the same time, people had the opportunity to learn and communicate in their native language, and one of Stalin's closest comrades was Lazar Kaganovich (Jewish by nationality).
And, finally, another absurd accusation of the leader in the destruction of the Lenin Guard. The "old Bolsheviks," such as Molotov, Kalinin, Kaganovich, and others, continued to work in the party apparatus. Representatives of the opposition were removed from their posts, only hiding behind the name of the first Russian Marxist.
