Anne Applebaum
If the Russian people and the Russian elite remembered - viscerally, emotionally remembered - what Stalin did to the Chechens, they could not have invaded Chechnya in the 1990s, not once and not twice. To do so was the moral equivalent of postwar Germany invading western Poland. Very few Russians saw it that way - which is itself evidence of how little they know about their own history.
Anne Applebaum, Gulag: A History

Joseph Stalin
As you see, the point is not which class today constitutes the majority, or which class is poorer, but which class is gaining strength and which is decaying.
