And finally… liquidated

A Stalin-themed kebab shop in Moscow has been liquidated by Russian officials after being open for less than a week.

Staff at the Stal’in Doner wore uniforms of the NKVD, the forerunner to the KGB while customers were greeted with the Stalin-era slogan: “Life has become better, life has become happier.”

The menu also offered a “Stalinskaya” kebab with double serving of meat.

However, due to the shop’s controversial nature, Mr Voltman, the shop’s owner, was detained by police and his shop closed.

Valery Fadeev, the head of the Kremlin’s human rights council, has said that the café would offend the relatives of people who suffered in the Soviet era. Some communists said, however, that the shop was disrespectful to Stalin.
