Transcript of Ukraine Genocide
Ukraine was officially part of the USSR in 1922, when Joseph Stalin was in charge. To strengthen the country, Stalin thought that Ukraine has to be restrained since Ukraine's personal goal opposed Russia’s. In order to control Ukraine, He then sent thousands of Christians leaders, scholarly leaders, and journalist to the "Gulag", labor camps in Serbia. Stalin attacked the landowners because they defy Russian’s control, needed more agricultural exports. In order to do that the government had to collect land and assign a specific amount to be grown. Many farmers rebelled and that led to their death or being sent to Siberia. The government forced them to grow 2.3 more times than what is normally grown The law prohibited people to save food for the future because it meant the Russians were losing money on food they could have sold to the west. To make sure that laws were not broken the government checked in people’s houses if they were hiding food. The famine caused Ukrainians to die at a rate of 25,000 per day, 1,000 per hour, or 17 per minute. By the end of the famine in May of 1933, 25% of the Ukrainian population perished. Details about starvation was revealed to the world in newspapers, but the USSR hid how many people died during the starvation. Estimations are that about 10 million people had died in the famine. Stalin’s policies to control Ukraine attacked the “kulaks,” Ukraine’s farmers, which was about 80% of the country. 200,000 Ukraine’s family had to give up their land because the government had to forcibly collect their land to grow as much wheat as possible. Victim The victims during the Ukrainian Genocide were the Ukrainians since the artificial famine was inflicted upon them. In order to control the country most thirsty for independence, Stalin decided to starve them. Nina Popovych, a survivor of the Ukrainian Genocide, talks about her experience during the famine. “They were horrible years. Mothers were slicing their children and sticking them in pots to cook them, and then ate them. My mother went into the field where some horses were dying and brought back the horse’s head. About five women bit into the horse’s head. What a horror it was; people were dropping dead on the road. If you pierced them, the blood was like water. So many people died.” Victimizer "death by hunger",
