The month of May this year marks the 70th anniversary of the height of a
devastating famine deliberately engineered by Soviet leader Josef Stalin
that claimed at least 5 million lives in Ukraine and around 2 million in the
North Caucasus and elsewhere.
In this three-part series, RFE/RL correspondent Askold Krushelnycky
reports on the motivation behind Josef Stalin's notorious plan, the memories
of those who survived the famine, and why even today so little is known
about the tragedy.
