Russia: Stalin’s grandson dies in Moscow!

MOSCOW, November 3 (RIA Novosti) – Joseph Alliluyev, the son of Joseph Stalin’s daughter Svetlana, died in Moscow on Sunday.

Alliluyev, born in 1945, was the only grandson of Stalin to have met the Soviet dictator. He worked as a cardiologist, and published over 150 papers on heart disease.

He kept a low profile throughout his life, never giving interviews.

Svetlana Alliluyeva, aged 82, Stalin’s only daughter, defected to the United States in 1967 and has U.S. citizenship.


The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
