comment What was the ratio of German to Soviet losses on eastern front during different stages of the war?
This number (27-35 million) includes civilians as well. Also your ratio does not account for the Germany's allies.

comment Did Hitler really support Subhash Chandra Bose's cause and did he do anything to help Bose?
@Arani Yes, the state of Charles de Gaulle was a puppet state. Even if he personally was independently thinking, it was the British who choose whom to place in charge.

comment Why didn't France and UK invade Germany September 3rd 1939?
"Chamberlain and Daladier did not want to risk angering Stalin and widening the war." - this is complete bullshit. They knew very well that the USSR too long warned about Germany and suggested the collective defense. They also knew that the USSR was very much concerned about Germany. It is simply impossible that they feared that they could worsen relations with the USSR by attacking Germany. Just the opposite: they hoped that Germany will attack the USSR after Poland, so that the West could avoid the war. -1.

@Drux can you please clarify what they thought in the school - something about Lenin or the idea that Russians have totalitarian(or slave) mentality due to Mongol blood/rule?

@DVK the numbers of the law enforcement (i.e. the police) today is far greater than during the whole Soviet period. The number of the law enforcement personnel per a unit of population in 2011 is twice greater than in 1953 (at the death of Stalin). They are also more heavily armed, that is they patrol the streets with submachineguns, which was impossible in the USSR (in the Brezhnev's times they usually even had no combat charges in their pistols).

@DVK to start with, there was no "police" in the USSR, the police was abolished after 1918 and even the very word "police" became prejorative (there were numerous protests when the pro-western president Medvedev re-invented the word in 2011). This is because the Tsarist police was known for its brutality and because the word associated with the Nazi collaborationists. In Ukraine and Belarus there is still no "police".
