comment Why, in the US, is Japanese brutality ignored compared with the Nazi brutality in WW2?
@sds usually cited number is 5-6 millon POWs killed. I never heard a claim that Germans took no more than 1 million, even from the most hard-line "apologists" :-)

@Vector with Russian POWs they did not follow the Geneva convention, under the pretext the USSR did not sign it. Jewish POWs from Russia got killed like any other Jews. Also they usually killed all Russian wounded, without taking them as POWs. I upvoted your first comment.

There were about 5 million Soviet POWs killed, rather than 2-3, I'll suggest an edit, if u disagree, revert.

@Felix Goldberg the question has wrong presumption, so it can only be answered by showing the presumption is wrong.

I think many in Russia would believe Russia is more democratic than the western countries currently because the leadership is more popular. Also many would argue that the USSR was more democratic than today's Russia.

@ihtkwot in any case it is difficult to see how the effort of Peter the Great failed. The system he instituted lasted for 300 years only to be replaced with Communist ideology(also borrowed from the West) by Lenin. Current rulers in many respect are inspired by Peter the Great.
