What conclusions can be made based on this in-harry-made sociological picture ?
First: It is confirmed once again that the theme is actual, since it touched hearts of our readers
Second: It would be good if the public opinion survey centers operating in Georgia will dare themselves to d conduct the research on this theme, because we must understand at last the Georgians attitude to Stalin.
. . . Or, probably this is a tabooed topic in our democratic country?!
