By comparison with Russia under Tsarist rule, where the highest figure of POLITICAL PRISONERS was 183 949, the communists have imprisoned 70-times as many people at any one time.

Similarly, there have been 50-times as many EXECUTIONS under communist rule in Russia as occurred under Tsarist rule in the same time period.
