The girl has published pictures of the “privileges” of prisoners like two weeks off, civil rights and freedom of speech.
October 6 RT TV channel correspondent in Washington, Samir Khan (Sameera Khan) published on Twitter a picture with the “truth” about Stalin’s gulags. The journalist listed the privileges that supposedly were available to the prisoners and made the camps not such a terrible place as they are described. The next day, Khan shared a second part of the picture with subscribers.
Both lists were accompanied by the caption “The capitalists fooled you.” And in the place of the source of information it was stated: “Stalin’s Haters would still not trust any sources.”

“I can’t even get mad at people who say:“ In fact, the GULAGs were a quiet, comfortable place, and there they allowed people to marry. ” Bless these fucking insane people for feeling fine with my broken brain. ”
Wasn’t expecting my day to start with reading an “Actually, Stalin’s gulags were good” take, but that’s why I so love this cursed website.

“Nods to the fact that there was no prison uniform in the camps is not an argument. In Siberia, you are trying to pull off warm boots from the dead ”
My favorite part is “Stalin’s Gulags Part II .” Like Part I wasn’t enough https://t.co/4Hh8QJH116

Reporters noted that in earlier tweets, Khan wrote about her readiness to “give his life for Stalin.” And on Instagram she published pictures in clothes with symbols of the USSR.
After criticism, the journalist deleted the pictures and apologized to the readers. She later deleted her Twitter account.
I just found out that the memes about the Stalin GULAGs that I published are unreliable. I apologize to everyone who is hurt. In no way was I going to “clarify” the tragic mass repressions of the Stalinist regime. Once again, sorry for the distribution of offensive and misleading information.
