Re: “Lumping Soviet Union with Nazis ignores historical realities: Darchiev,” (The Hill Times, Sept. 2, p. 12). Information in Timothy Snyder’s 2010 book, Bloodlands: Europe between Hitler and Stalin, contradicts the Russian ambassador to Canada’s contention. Mr. Snyder writes, “In the middle of Europe in the middle of the 20th century, the Nazi and Soviet regimes murdered some 14 million people. The place where all of the victims died, the bloodlands, extends from central Poland to western Russia, through Ukraine, Belarus, and the Baltic States.”
