Absurd claim about USSR[edit]

This is absurd

In 2004, she argued that "behind the Iron Curtain the Soviet regime continued to commit genocide against the peoples of Eastern Europe and, indeed, against its own people [...] the two totalitarian regimes—Nazism and Communism—were equally criminal." She elaborated on this in 2006 when she came up with death counts for the two regimes, pointing out that the Soviet Union killed around 94.5 million people.[5]

She never claimed that the Soviet regime killed 94.5 million people, she claimed that Communist regimes did.

If the Russian immigration authorities read English Wikipedia it's no surprise if she couldn't get into the country for Boris Nemtsov's funeral. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.80.115.84 (talk) 09:52, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
