Brutality → Ukraine Famine - 1932-1933 - 7,000,000 Deaths

The Ukrainian famine (1932-1933), or Holodomor was engineered by the Soviet regime. Joseph Stalin, leader of the Soviet Union, set in motion events designed to cause a famine in the Ukraine to destroy the people there seeking independence from his rule. As a result, an estimated 7,000,000 persons perished in this farming area, known as the breadbasket of Europe, with the people deprived of the food they had grown with their own hands. It was an act of genocide designed to undermine the social basis of Ukrainian national resistance. By mid 1932, nearly 75 percent of the farms in the Ukraine had been forcibly collectivized. On Stalin's orders, mandatory quotas of foodstuffs to be shipped out to the Soviet Union were drastically increased in August, October and again in January 1933, until there was simply no food remaining to feed the people of the Ukraine. Ukrainian Communists urgently appealed to Moscow for a reduction in the grain quotas and also asked for emergency food aid. Stalin responded by denouncing them and rushed in over 100,000 fiercely loyal Russian soldiers to purge the Ukrainian Communist Party. The Soviets then sealed off the borders of the Ukraine, preventing any food from entering, in effect turning the country into a gigantic concentration camp. Soviet police troops inside the Ukraine also went house to house seizing any stored up food, leaving farm families without a morsel. All food was considered to be the "sacred" property of the State. Anyone caught stealing State property, even an ear of corn or stubble of wheat, could be shot or imprisoned for not less than ten years. Starvation quickly ensued throughout the Ukraine, with the most vulnerable, children and the elderly, first feeling the effects of malnutrition. The once-smiling young faces of children vanished forever amid the constant pain of hunger. It gnawed away at their bellies, which became grossly swollen, while their arms and legs became like sticks as they slowly starved to death.

Cannibalism became a regular practice in some isolated areas where no other food was available. No animals were to be found in many areas. No dogs, no cats, no rats, no birds no sheep, goats or cattle even no horses were spared. All were killed & eaten by the starving populace.
At the height of the Famine, Ukrainian villagers were dying at the rate of: 17 per minute, 1,000 per hour, 25,000 per day. At the same time the Soviet regime was dumping 1.7 million tons of grain on Western markets. By the end of 1933, nearly 25 percent of the population of the Ukraine, including three million children, had perished.

As the alleged son of Anna Anderson, I have though a lot about the hard decisions of an autocrat. Yes, Stalin killed 60 million. Or did he save a hundred million? For Nicholas II's reluctance to violently suppress a 50 year old rebellion, we got the Soviet union, which had to kill even more innocents because of anarchy. Hard decisions. I wonder if Stalin and Ghadaffi are all that bad after all, considering the alternative of world anarchy.
