From the Paper:

"Ivan was a brilliant man who could have done a lot during this rule in Russia. If his childhood wasn't so scarred with traumatic memories he would have been a great statesman. Even though he did a lot of good things for his country, no one can forget the acts of cruelty of his regime. His behavior got modified after the death of his first wife. In the end he destroyed himself by getting rid of the people he loved dearly. This was a reason why he lost the war with himself. Russia went through a terrible phase as it was left without a strong ruler after the death of Ivan IV. No one could fill the void. People wished that Ivan IV was still around."
