According to Medina, which is quoted by TASS, Grozny, in a number of political figures of his time, was not the bloody tyrant. In support of this thesis, the Minister cited the statistics, according to which the result of the terrible died in the country from 3 to 7 thousand people. At the same time, he referred to the history of France, only the St. Bartholomew’s day and related days were killed about 30 thousand of the Huguenots.

Thus, concluded the Medina, the terrible should not compare with “Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi”, and with the leaders of the “enlightened Europe”.

Note that the sources of its digits Medina failed, whereas modern historians estimate the number of victims of Grozny, in the city of Veliky Novgorod from 4 to 15 thousand people.

Recall that the questions to be given by the doctor of historical Sciences Medina historical data occur not for the first time: currently, the WAC is considering the revocation of his academic degrees in connection with the alleged unscientific thesis, in which Medina, in particular, showed ignorance of the existence of the Church Slavonic language and the Bible translation by Luther.
