The best thing this could be is an acknowledgement that Communism is a major part of Russia’s history. That’s still bad, of course, unless it’s accompanied with facts about the old USSR’s brutality (not likely). It could also be a hint at where Putin wants to take Russia again.
Update: But wait, there’s more.
