Did Starlin shake his fist at God when he died?

Did Starlin shake his fist at God when he died?

Yes:

“According to Svetlana, as Stalin lay dying, plagued with terrifying hallucinations, he suddenly sat halfway up in bed, clenched his fist toward the heavens once more, fell back upon his pillow, and was dead”. Ravi Zacharias

and Ravi mentions it here too at around 3:40 (the daughter is quoted by “Malcolm Muggeridge and also by Paul Johnson in his book modern times”)

This seems quite a helpful site actually

No:

“He did not shake his fist to be exact. According to his daughter (svetllana) in her memoirs, he pointed to the ceiling and dragged down his finger as if to bring a curse upon her and the physicians at his deathbed. My source is: Martin Amis – Koba the Dread (Laughter and the 20 Million)”
