They created socialism. Communism (classless, stateless society) is not possible in a predominantly capitalist world. Defending yourself against capitalist states requires a state.

That said, who's praising them? Recognizing the achievements of socialist societies doesn't require hero worship of guys who did indeed "kill a lot of people who shouldn't have been killed".
