Iuri made quite an impression on us as he greeted us dressed up in his finest suit. Iuri is a historian, an onomastician, and an unapologetic Stalinist. No matter how much we tried to get Iuri to open up about himself, the conversation lead back to Joseph Stalin and the 5 tomes Iuri published in his honour. We certainly don't condone Iuri's love of a brutal dictator, but we do believe that he is entitled to the same level of care as anyone else in the program.
Iuri admits his Socialist heroes are very unpopular today
