    Individually by his own hand? Who knows. By his order, definitely tens of millions. He killed far more people than Hitler did. Definitely at least 20 million.

    Its generally thought the number stands around 10 Million!

    Numbers range from about 20 million to 30 million

    they were mainly political opponents, but also kulaks, or the wealth class of peasants who profited from a minor system of capitalism

    No one will ever know for sure, but latest reliable estimates are about 20 million. Stalin killed more Soviet citizens than the Germans killed in World War Two.

    But hey, at least the survivors got free government health care.

    Isn't socialism wonderful?

    I don't think he killed them. People are born, live and they die eventually. Many lived out their lives in Siberia but eventually died. They could have been more comfortable living out their lives in other parts of USSR, but most would have had a hard life anyway. Some were killed by over-zealous guards and sadistic commandants, no doubt.

    Not many compared to the number of Ukrainians and those of the various Arab tribal groups.
