“I would say that the terror began in Russia not in the 1930s, but rather in the 1920s, just after the Revolution. But in the 1930s the terror was not more revolutionary. It was something which had one sense: to destroy people, to destroy the Russian peasantry, to destroy the Russian intelligentsia, to destroy the Russian army. And it was because Stalin was chief of a criminal band, and the one thing he thought seriously was to divide and to rule.” [Evgeny Pasternak]
