According to some reports, Perelygina even had exiled Dzhugashvili two children. Despite this fact, the former civil wife has never met.

Introduction in Kureyka

the last reference to Joseph Dzhugashvili became the North-Eastern region of Siberia. According to Simon Sebag-Montefiore, author of “Stalin: the Courtyard of the red monarch”, fearing another escape of the convict, the authorities decided to place it in one of the most remote parts of the region the village of Kureyka. Despite the fact that in letters to Olga and Sergey Alliluev Stalin complained that in Kureyka he’s going crazy from boredom, this period was one of the happiest in the life of the leader. Until the end of his life Stalin talked of hunting in the Siberian taiga. But on his then passion he preferred not to speak.
