You know enough of history to have heard that there were "Volga Germans", but not a single substantial fact.
There were millions of German settlers invited in to settle the lands but that was in the mid to late 1700s, 250 years ago, NOT "a century ago".
And the same Christian Russian Empire that invited them in 250 years ago was no longer in existence when the anti-Christian tyrant Stalin tried to destroy all that was good in that society, including the industrious Volga Germans and the tens of millions of others. But that's what demon-possessed tyrants do.
I'll bet you don't even know that Stalin was neither born in Russia nor ethnic Russian, so it's even more absurd to imply that "they" invited in some people, then tried to kill them later. They were two diffent worlds, separated by 200 years.
Several hundred thousands Germans were settled on Volga River during reign of Katherine II who was German herself. Stalin was born in part of Russia named Georgia, his father Dzhugarov etnically was Ossetian, his mother Georgian, them were both Russias citizens, so was Josef Dzhugaroshvili AKA Stalin. He did not destroyed Orthodox churches, Bolsheviks and Trotskists did for they were immigrants. When Stalin has defeated his political rivals in the Communist party he cancelled Lenins decree about repressions against Orthodox Church in 1934. He even helped to hierarchs and Church during WWII, may be his goal was to win hearts of millions ordinary people and Western allies or maybe he sympathized to Church because he spent several years in his youth in Orthodox seminary.
German Volga river settlers were not sent to labor camps. About 1 million of them were deported to Kazakhstan and Kirghizia in 1941 because of fear of fifth column like in Europe. By the end of WWII about 6 millions Germans were deported from European countries; there was no human rights and PC in the World by the time.

I implied nothing. I stated a simple fact. I also know that Stalin was an ethnic Georgian. Who is to say that the current regime won't do the same to the Serbs?
