comment Did Stalin believe Israel would go communist?
"people neither join the communist camp nor enter the prison camp voluntarily" - there are a lot of Communist countries who became Communist independently of any external force. Yugoslavia, Cuba, China, Albania etc.

This totally does not answer the question. Why on Earth you even put it here?

@T.E.D. anyway, the translation seems to be redunant as the questioner seems to be fluent in Russian.

comment When did the Soviet Union stop blaming the Entente for WW2?
Can you please bring a source where start of WWII was blamed on the Entente exclusively? Can you please bring an evidence that the USSR switched to blame Germany exclusively after 1941? It seems your premise is somewhat imprecise. I think the change may be happened in 1970s or 1980s.

@T.E.D. In Russian "fascism" includes Nazism. Moreover, it was nearly the sole word for Nazism during the Soviet period (often narrowed down as "German fascism" in scientific sources). "Nazism" could be understood but never used, it became more wedespread after the fall of the USSR under English influence. But it seems there are some other issues of understanding of the translation. Where it says Mussolini was fighting against fascism?...

@sds why do u think there was any change at all? Firstly, it seems, from the very beginning the USSR blamed the both sides (not just Entente), and this continued later.
