Today Putin repeats Stalin’s actions

Saturday marks the 90th anniversary of the 1932-1933 Holodomor, or Terror Famine. Soviet leader Joseph Stalin engineered the famine by removing food stocks from Ukrainian peasants, leading to the deaths of millions of people.

Putin is nothing more than the modern Joseph Stalin, he is a legacy of the Soviet era, just another mentally sick dictator who already killed hundreds of thousands of people, the Russian people, the Ukrainian People, the Chechens, and the Georgians.

Putin is Stalin of 21st Century

The war in Ukraine was a direct order of Putin, in the same way as the famine in Ukraine was a direct result of Joseph Stalin’s policies of forced collectivization and grain requisitioning. Stalin created so called “the collectivization of agriculture” in the Soviet Union. It was a policy that was meant to promote economic efficiency and increase agricultural production. Similar to the War in Ukraine was initially presented to Russian people as “liberation campaign”, however, the policy was poorly implemented and led to widespread resistance from peasant farmers. Today we see exactly identical situation with Russian invasion of Ukraine, Russian leaders presented the invasion to Russian government under the narrative that Russian army will be met by Ukrainians with flowers.

The history repeats itself, Ukrainians always responded with widespread resistance to Russians, including to Stalin’s policies. To eliminate resistance Stalin instituted a system of grain requisitioning, which allowed the Soviet government to seize grain from farmers at will. This system of grain requisitioning, combined with poor crop yields and a famine in the Kazakh SSR, led to the deaths of millions of people in the Ukrainian SSR.

Terror-Famine or the Great Famine

The Holodomor, also known as the Terror-Famine or the Great Famine, was a man-made famine in Soviet Ukraine from 1932 to 1933 that killed millions of Ukrainians. The Holodomor was part of the wider Soviet famine of 1932–1933 which affected the major grain-producing areas of the country, including the Volga region, Kazakhstan, and the North Caucasus. It is estimated that between 3 and 7 million people died of starvation in the Ukrainian SSR as a result of the famine.

The famine was caused by the policies of the Soviet government, which forced the collectivization of agriculture and requisitioned grain from the peasantry. The resulting drop in agricultural production led to a famine in which millions of people died of starvation. The Soviet government denied that the famine was taking place and took measures to conceal the scale of the disaster. The famine was not widely known outside of Ukraine until the 1980s, when it was denounced by the Ukrainian dissident Vasyl Stus.

The Holodomor has been compared to the Nazi genocide of the Jews

The Holodomor has been compared to the Nazi genocide of the Jews, and has been described as an act of genocide by Ukrainian scholars. The Holodomor is also credited with contributing to the rise of Ukrainian nationalism.

The famine was a devastating event for the Ukrainian people. It is estimated that between 3 and 7 million people died as a result of the famine. The famine also had a profound impact on Ukrainian culture and identity. The event is commemorated in Ukraine every year on the anniversary of the famine’s start, and it is recognized as an act of genocide by the Ukrainian government.

Russia is not Putin, and Putin is not Russia. The dictator should go

The Russian people have had enough of Putin and his dictatorial ways. They are tired of living in a country that is controlled by a man who cares only about himself and his own power. They are tired of seeing their countrymen killed and tortured by their own government. They are tired of being lied to and manipulated by Putin and his cronies.

It is time for the Russian people to take their country back from Putin and his cronies. It is time for them to demand a new government that will represent their interests and works for their benefit. Only then will Russia be able to move forward and become the great country it has the potential to be.
