    Ukraine Manmade famine\Events? The Holodomor (death by starvation) refers to the famine of 1932–1933 in the Ukrainian SSR during which millions of people were starved to death because of the Soviet policies that forced farmers into collective farms. The Holodomor is considered one of the greatest national calamities to affect the Ukrainian nation in modern history. Millions of inhabitants of Ukraine died of starvation in an unprecedented peacetime catastrophe. Estimates on the total number of casualties within Soviet Ukraine range mostly from 2.6 million to 10 million.

    The root cause of the Holodomor is a subject of scholarly debate. Some scholars have argued that the Soviet policies that caused the famine may have been designed as an attack on the rise of Ukrainian nationalism, and therefore fall under the legal definition of genocide. Therefore the Holodomor is also known as the "terror-famine in Ukraine" and "famine-genocide in Ukraine". Others, however, conclude that the Holodomor was a consequence of the economic problems associated with radical economic changes implemented during the period of Soviet industrialization.

    As of March 2008, the parliament of Ukraine and nineteen governments of other countries have recognized the actions of the Soviet government as an act of genocide. The joint declaration at the United Nations in 2003 has defined the famine as the result of cruel actions and policies of the totalitarian regime that caused the deaths of millions of Ukrainians, Russians, Kazakhs and other nationalities in the USSR. On 23 October 2008 the European Parliament adopted a resolution that recognized the Holodomor as a crime against humanity. More..........................http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holodomor

    The Artificial Famine/Genocide

    (Holodomor) in Ukraine

    1932-33

    Introduction A Man-Made Famine/Genocide raged through Ukraine, the ethnic-Ukrainian region of northern Caucasus (i.e. Kuban), and the lower Volga River region in 1932-33. 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 Kaganovich. The main goal of this artificial famine/genocide was to break the spirit of the Ukrainian farmer/peasant and to force them into collectivization and was used as an effective tool to break the renaissance of Ukrainian culture that was occuring 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 sadistic manner. The resulting goal of this artificial famine/genocide was to "ethnically cleanse" Ukrainians from vast territories.

    In 1932, the Soviets increased the grain procurement quota for Ukraine by 44%. They were aware that this extraordinarly 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, OGPU, NKVD secret police units were used to move against peasants who may be hiding grain from the Soviet government. Even worse, an internal passport system 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 & 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.

    1. Apart from the obvious loss of life and enormous moral hunger strike has caused irreparable harm to the Ukrainian national life. He virtually destroyed the old Ukrainian village with its rich folk traditions. Instead, there was a collective farm village, which has never rebelled against the Soviet regime.

    2. collectivization muted sense of individualism, which has been central to the identity of Ukrainian peasant.

    3. On several generations of famine instilled in the minds of the peasantry social fear, political apathy and passivity.

    4. Hunger interrupted the continuity of generations in the development of the Ukrainian national elite.

    5. Hunger suspended "Ukrainization" cities in the East and South of Ukraine, after the replenishment of the urban population was mainly due to immigration from Russia, etc.

    After they murdered the Russian Czar and his family, Jewish Zionists (satan worshipers) took over and created the Soviet Union.

    The Holodomor Famine was perpetrated by Jewish (Zionist/Satanists) Bolsheviks.
