The article discusses mass killings perpetrated by communist regimes throughout the 20th century, including the Soviet Union, China, and Cambodia.

Two warnings appear on the article, one asking for comments on the possible deletion of the article and one noting that the article may be biased or unverifiable.

“This article is being considered for deletion in accordance with Wikipedia’s deletion policy,” the first warning reads. “Please share your thoughts on the matter at this article’s deletion discussion page.

Feel free to improve the article, but do not remove this notice before the discussion is closed and do not blank the page. For more information, read the guide to deletion.”
