Stalin received a "Pilate". A man of power was told by the divine Lord that his actions are evil and there is also two interesting stories,one of the Eucharist and one of the Blessed Theotokos and Evervirgin Mary. The Lord worked many miracles through his saints and our lady for the good of the russian people.

The Holy Royal Family were amazing christians,there are many miracles attributed to them.This "Passion bearers" rather then "Martyrs" is wrong.

The story Radzinsky told of Stalin had to do with the dark days of  WWII. The metropolitan of Lebanon had gone into his cell to pray for the survival of Russia. On the third day of his prayers, he said the Virgin appeared to him and promised to save Russia, BUT she said the Churches must be re-opened and the priests brought back from the camps. The story made the rounds in Russia until Stalin himself finally heard of it. Frightened by the German successes he summoned the Patriarch of Moscow and agreed to both conditions. He also agreed to allow a new seminary and to give the Orthodox church a printing press but I don't think he made good on those.

"When I have my own printing press, I will publish the Koran according to the most ancient manuscripts that belong to the disciples of the prophet Mohammed, and I will give it to Soviet Mohammedans."
