Holodomor is the name used to designate the genocide for starvation of over 6 million people, perpetrated by the Soviet regime against the Ukrainian population in the years 1932 - 1933.

Ukrainians suffered terrible punishment, because they were accused of challenging the collective property system.

All agricultural resources were requisitioned and the population starved. A quarter of the rural population, men, women and children, was thus exterminated by starvation.

The famine determined, together with the annihilation of the peasants, the extermination of the Ukrainian cultural, religious and intellectual elites.
