Stalin was an overt murderer, true. Few beat him in the area of body count. The difference with Putin is that he's a subversive threat. Putin is a former KGB colonel who has no qualms about killing -- and killing large swaths of people (e.g. Syria) -- but he understands that achieving the fall of the West is done via subversion, rather than a direct assault. It could be argued, and I think rightly, that Putin is a bigger threat than ISIS and has caused more damage to post-WW2 America and the Western alliance than anyone.

It's difficult to compare that to overt atrocities, I would agree
