Ukrainians Put Their Faith in Their “Holodomor” Genocide

Today in Ukraine the victims of the terrible famine of the 1930s, called there “Holodomor“, is again commemorated. Pretentious speeches are made, sometimes the most unexpected events are held.

In 2006, when President Viktor Yushchenko and the Security Service of Ukraine under his control were just started a mass dissemination of the “genocide” campaign, one of the women interviewed on “Channel 5” (owned by Petro Poroshenko) said with commendable simplicity: “The holiday of Holodomor should be commemorated as genocide”. They have been commemorating like this ever since.

The controversial facts that have now been revealed connected to a rich banquet in honour of last year’s anniversary of hunger are clear evidence of this approach of the Ukrainian authorities. The-then head of the state Institute of National Memory, one of the main ideologists of the modern banderak Vladimir Vyatrovich, spent generously on the guests gathered for the Holodomor conference. And, according to a deputy from “Servants of the People”, he made good money: “He stole money through Holodomor and sent it out to Cyprus”.

Peculiar banquets within the framework of the Holodomor “holiday” are also arranged for the people. However, without canapes, like with Vyatrovich: they are for chosen people. For ordinary people – a “street restaurant”, where soup of pine needles and Korzhik with leaves is given to eat. According to the organisers of the action, these dishes were fed to Ukrainians in the 1930s.

One thought runs through all actions: it was a conscious genocide, organised by treacherous Moscow for the complete extermination of the Ukrainian ethnic group. There is a direct parallel to the Holocaust (Holocaust = Holodomor).

Such propaganda certainly works. For example, as early as November 2006, on the eve of the adoption by the Verkhovna Rada of a law recognising the famine of the 1930s as genocide, only 38.5% of the population supported this step, and 44% considered it to be wrong. A study conducted by the “R&B Group” in August 2008 found that 41% of citizens saw this famine as a deliberate destruction of the Ukrainian people, and 44% believed that the disaster was caused by a combination of circumstances (crop failure) or the incompetence of the authorities. The most recent survey, organised by the “Rating” group this month, showed that 82% of the population already believe in genocide. A clear result of prolonged brainwashing.

What is typical: all polls constantly show that the “genocide” theory is most supported in the west of Ukraine, i.e., on those territories that in the 1930s were not a part of the USSR, and therefore, did not encounter collectivisation or Stalin’s reign.

As it has been repeatedly proved, almost all books, exhibitions, and buffets on the topic of Soviet famine are without fail accompanied by frank falsehoods. In fact, the already mentioned start of the massive campaign to promote this topic by Viktor Yushchenko and the archival service of the SBU was marked by an exhibition at which the lion’s share of materials presented were photographs of the victims of the terrible famine in the Russian Volga region of the 1920s. The captions read: “They went to Kharkov for bread. 1933.”

Such fakes are contained in studies of the famine of the 1930s, claiming to be scientific, and in publications of once solid Western newspapers, whose editors become very angry when their blatant lies and photographic fraud are pointed out to them.

In the Netherlands, for example, a study entitled “Holodomor. Stalin’s Genocide in Ukraine 1931-1933”. And there are pictures of “victims of famine” in Lvov – the author is clearly not aware that back then Galicia was in Poland, and these photos were taken in Nazi-occupied Lvov in June 1941. But who cares about such little things, if the main purpose of such pseudo-scientific materials is not to find historical truth, but to blame the Russians, Moscow, and Stalin for all the troubles and bring everything to the conclusion of “genocide”.

… There are plenty of really serious studies proving that the famine of the 1930s affected Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan without choosing victims by nationality. I.e., this is our common tragedy, which has nothing to do with genocide.

In no case should responsibility be removed from the leadership of the USSR, which clearly did not calculate the scale of crop failure and the consequences of the removal of grain from farmers, undertaken to feed the city and ensure the rapid industrialisation of the same Ukraine. But similarly, Stalin’s attempts and the Union’s top leadership to supply starving Ukrainians with food should not be forgotten. As the American researcher of that period Mark Tauger rightly observed: why save the population from hunger if the goal is to exterminate them?

It cannot be ignored that the same Stalin leadership actively carried out Ukrainisation. And it especially should not be forgotten that the executors of the collectivisation policy and the main whistleblowers of kulaks were the same Ukrainians, single villagers, their neighbours, and kinfolk. Where are the signs of the destruction of one nationality by another, as was the case with the extermination of Indians in the United States or Armenians in Turkey?

And yet since 2014, various parliaments of the world, as well as individual states or municipalities, in the West have actively rushed to recognise this tragedy as genocide.

However, the term “genocide” has long become an instrument of foreign policy games that have nothing to do with history.
