Holodomor Truth

holodomor truth has a lot to do with the Soviet famine of 1932-1933. This famine affected most major grain-producing agricultural areas of the Soviet Union, including other areas surrounding it. The Communist governments of the Soviet Republics took the grains from the peasantry and exported most of their Republic's agricultural output to the West so that they could maintain the rapid economic transformation. By doing this it caused mass hunger or Golodomor for millions of victims throughout the Soviet Union. The word Golodomer means "mass hunger or great hunger which caused millions of people to become victims.
In order to politicize the issue of 'golodomor' and to bring to the world's attention as much as possible, the word 'golodomor' has been transformed into 'holodomor' making it look and sound like 'holocaust' and therefore, could be considered as a genocide. The European Parliament in its resolution on October 23, 2008 rejected to call the famine of 1932-1933 in Ukraine as "an act of genocide" but a crime that was "scornfully and cruelly planned by Stalin's rule in order to force through the Soviet Union's policy of collectivization of agriculture". This is a very sad subject and to think that some governments would stand by and watch people lose their lives. If you are interested in finding out more, visit their website.
