An independent Russian organisation says it has been evicted from the museum building where it showed how Stalin's terror and prison camps – the Gulag – worked.
Viktor Sjmyrnov, director of the Perm-36 Museum in central Russia, told the US News Agency Associated Press (AP) that his organization had been stripped of the property after losing a court case against the regional culture ministry, which announced in 2013 that it wanted to take over the operation.
He condemned the new concept for the museum:
There was no longer any talk of political repression, no talk of Stalin.
Historians estimate that 700,000 people were executed during the reign of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin. Millions more died from hard work and cruel treatment in the great Gulag prison system, from mass famine in Ukraine and southern Russia and in connection with the deportation of ethnic minorities.
