So how do you explain major famine across Russia and Kazakstan in the same years? For all his faults, I don't see any real evidence of Stalin simply "disliking" certain peoples for the sake of it. He's Georgian himself, why would he care? From what I know, his logic was along the lines of "conflict with Poland => prosecute Polish Just In Case™".
I'm open to discussion, of course, I have zero emotional investment in whether Stalin was "just" a sociopath or a nationalist one =)
P.S. There still is Joseph Stalin State Museum in hometown in Georgia(!)
