"The Artificial Famine/Genocide in Ukraine 1932-1933"
INTRODUCTION: "A Man-Made Famine raged through Ukraine, the ethic-Ukrainian
region of northern Caucasus, and the lower Volga River region in 1932-1933.
This resulted in the death of between 7 to 10 million people, mainly
Ukrainians. This was instigated by Soviet leader Joseph Stalin and
his henchman Lazar Kagonovich. The main goal of this artificial famine
was to break the spirit of the Ukrainian farmer/peasant and to force
them into collectivization. The famine was also used as an effective
tool to break the renaissance of Ukrainian culture that was occurring
under approval of the communist government in Ukraine. Moscow perceived
this as a threat to a Russo-Centric Soviet rule and therefore acted
to crush this cultural renaissance in a most brutal fashion.
In 1932, the Soviets increased the grain procurement quota for Ukraine
by 44%. There were aware that this extraordinarily high quota would
result in a grain shortage, therefore resulting in the inability of
the Ukrainian peasant to feed themselves. Soviet law was quite clear
in that no grain could be given to feed the peasants until the quota
was met. Communist party officials with the aid of military troops
and NKVD secret police units were used to move against peasants who
may be hiding grain from the Soviet government. Even worse, an internal
was implemented to restrict movements of Ukrainian peasants so that
they could not travel in search of food. Ukrainian grain was collected
and stored in grain elevators that were guarded by military units
and NKVD secret police units while Ukrainians were starving in the
immediate area. The actions of this Moscow instigated action was a
deliberate act of genocide against the Ukrainian peasant.
These series of pages are intended to educate the general populace
about this little known event in Ukrainian history. InfoUkes hopes
to add to this series of pages over time."
