Well, if you are Amnesty International that’s big news.
The words “Gulag” and “Nazi” are conspicuous by their absence and Amnesty does get in a dig at the US:
It also stresses that the US and allies have themselves committed grave violations, including killings of civilians and torture of prisoners.
“But abuses committed by one side do not and cannot justify abuses by another,” the rights group says.
It makes me wonder what they would have said if the prisoners in the real Gulag had risen up en masse and killed their KGB guards by “borscht boarding”.
