Is Russia preparing a new Holodomor in Ukraine?
Russian authorities ordered to “expropriate” harvests, seeds, and equipment from Ukrainian farmers in the occupied Kherson region. These orders remind of Stalin’s “requisitions” of food from Ukrainian peasants in the early 1930s. This led to Holodomor, Stalin’s artificial famine in which at least 4 million Ukrainian peasants died in 1932-1933. – UkraineWorld continues its “Explaining Ukraine” podcast.
