Stalin's involvement with the socialist movement (or, to be more exact, that branch of it that later became the communist movement) began at the seminary.
While Stalin's social and economic policies laid the foundations for the USSR's emergence as a superpower, the harshness in which he conducted Soviet affairs was subsequently repudiated by his successors in the Communist Party leadership, notably the denunciation of Stalinism by Nikita Khrushchev in February 1956.
