A high Russian official has called an Armando Ianucci comedy film about the death of Stalin a "planned provocation" and a "Western plot to destabilise Russia"
They are so paranoid. We just don't think that much about Russia; they're not that important to us. I know they obsess over the West and spend significant resources to destabilise us, but they are projecting if they think we do the same to them (inb4 Putin fanboys and conspiracy nuts start shrieking about Victoria Nuland and colour revolutions)
I will go and see anything with Steve Buscemi, Jeffrey Tambor and Rupert Friend in it, but it doesn't look that funny, tbh. But I give it full marks for getting up the Russians

Last I heard Stalin was voted 3rd best Russian by Russians.
They had similar in Germany, but they had to ban anyone related to National Socialist Germany. I bet you approved of that ban.

Ruskis adore Stalin. Stalin's monuments, posters, propaganda- last time it was at that level in early 50's.
They forgot to mention that Russians were his main victims- milions of them perished because of his orders.
But hey- our problem is that we consider them Europeans- while they are not. they may look like that, but they are really Asians.
but this movie isn't a propaganda movie- it's a satire. Satire of Hitler was done many times in Germany, Germans have no problems with that. Soviets do have problem when someone takes a piss of their beloved Папа Сталин.
