The last Russian emperor authorized mass killings of common people, stated Vladimir Bakulin, a Doctor of Historical Sciences at Vyatka State University, during the meeting of the “Novator” center at the A.I. Hertzen library in the city of Kirov, Russia on October 26, a Rossa Primavera News Agency correspondent reports.
While responding to questions from library guests about the events of February-October 1917, the professor gave an assessment of how Nicholas II treated his subjects.
“I would note a complete indifference towards the people and their suffering, and, at least, non-resistance, but more often full support of the mass killings of the common people,” said Bakulin.
The scientist noted that actions by the government to suppress popular uprisings frequently turned bloody in the Russian Empire, and they were carried out with full approval from the head of state.
“Soldiers’ units, Cossack squads were sent to flog, shoot,etc.,” said the historian.
More detailed analysis of Nicholas II’s personality, as well as other figures of the revolutionary era, are published in the article –”Vyatka State University professor answers questions about the revolution of 1917″, where Vladimir Bakulin not only describes certain events dating back one hundred years, but also estimates the possibility of a revolutionary scenario developing in modern Russia.
