AbstractOne of the most important features of the twentieth century in the history of Europe is the emergence of military dictatorships and what these dictatorships played in the world of politics and occupied an important place in modern and contemporary European history, and the most prominent of these dictatorial regimes is the regime of the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, who embodied dictatorship in the Union of Soviet Republics Sprawling, and practiced absolute policy on all levels of political, economic and social. He was determining the internal and external policy, and developing plans and programs for that policy. It was known as the Five-Year Plan, after the dictator crushed all his rivals and opponents, and the people approached him as soon as they were suspicious of them. By ruling life as the sole heir to Lenin's empire.
Stalin implemented five-year plans for the advancement of the Soviet economy, according to the communist principle. However, those plans were far from communism, which called for people's ownership of economic facilities, as it was overwhelmed by dictatorship and the people were nothing but a tool in the hands of the state, like slaves. On the other fronts, it also killed the Soviet people, as it interfered in various areas of life, specifically religion and belief, as Christians, Muslims and Jews suffered most suffering and persecution, and that stemmed from the communist ideology that infects hostility to religion and is based on atheism.
