Transcript of The Holodomor
"We will keep the Kulak out." 6. Preparation
The Ukrainian border is closed, an internal passport system is set up to be able to confine certain groups, all food sources are removed, and peasants are forced onto farms and forbidden to work in cities. It is now an insurmountable task for the average Ukrainian to find food. 7. Extermination With no available food, people died by the tens of thousands everyday and starved bodies lined the streets. At the most extreme point in the Holodomor, 17 Ukrainian villagers died per minute. This equates to 25000 a day. In total it has been speculated that 7-10 million Ukrainian died; over a quarter of the total population.
Stalin and the government actively denied allegations of a man-made famine and kept secret the death statistics. Through the Holodomor, there would be no Ukrainian people, and therefore no seperate country from Russia; this is how Stalin solved his problem. The genocide of the Ukrainian people was only brought into the light of the public in the 1990's once the Cold War ended and the Russian Iron Curtain policy was lifted.
