Widely seen as a brutal dictator, Josef Stalin is remembered more fondly by loyalists including leaders of Russia’s Communist Party.

Admirers marched to the former Soviet leader’s grave by the Kremlin Wall on Moscow’s Red Square on Saturday to pay tribute, exactly 63 years after his death.

Six decades on, Stalin’s legacy remains the subject of bitter debate and broad interpretation in Russia, where many still believe he did some good for the country.
