The Holodomor in Ukraine (1932-1933)

The Holodomor of 1932–1933 was an act of genocide of the Ukrainian people, organized by the leadership of the CPSU (B.) And the government of the USSR in 1932–1933 by creating an artificial mass famine. The famine took place in Ukraine and in the Kuban both before 1933 and in 1932. The only difference is the scale of the crime.

If during 1932 hundreds of thousands of people were murdered by famine, in 1933 the number was in the millions. However, both in 1932 and in 1933 in Ukraine and the Kuban, in contrast to other regions of the USSR, where many people also died of starvation, famine was an act of genocide because it was deliberately directed against the Ukrainian nation as such.

The number of people who died of starvation was estimated by some historians at 3.941 million in rural areas in the Ukrainian SSR and Kuban, the vast majority of whose population were Ukrainians, and amounted to 6.122 million unborn losses ( in total, more than seven million people (mostly Ukrainians) died of starvation in the Ukrainian SSR and three million Ukrainians outside the Kuban, North Caucasus, Lower Volga, and Kazakhstan).

The Holodomor was caused by the conscious and purposeful measures of the top leadership of the Soviet Union and the Ukrainian SSR, led by Stalin, designed to suppress the Ukrainian national liberation movement and the physical destruction of some Ukrainian peasants.
