The Holodomor, literally "death by hunger", is a genocide perpetrated between 1932
and 1933 by the Soviet Regime, in which over 6 million Ukrainians lost their lives. In
order to eliminate the "Ukraine issue", Stalin exploited and exasperated the famine
caused by the collectivization of land. He thus exterminated both the peasants and the
cultural, religious, and intellectual elites, which were considered enemies of socialism.
To the general indifference to the carnage that was taking place in the villages, not only in Ukraine but also near Moscow, a Welsh journalist, Gareth Jones, decided that it was the time for the world to know what was happening.
