Pre-Present Day Ukraine History --Why the Ukrainians Would Rather Die Than Give Up.
Old History Long Horrible Memories
During the Soviet era, Ukraine experienced a famine known as the Holodomor, which is estimated to have caused the deaths of millions of people. The causes of the famine were complex and multi-faceted, but it is widely acknowledged that the policies and actions of the Soviet government played a significant role.
Under Marxist-Leninist ideology, the Soviet government collectivized agriculture in Ukraine and other parts of the country, which involved the forced consolidation of small, privately-owned farms into large, state-controlled farms. This led to a decrease in agricultural productivity, as farmers were no longer motivated to work hard and produce food for their own families and communities. Additionally, the Soviet government requisitioned grain and other foodstuffs from Ukraine and other areas, in order to feed people in other parts of the Soviet Union and export food to other countries.
These policies, combined with natural disasters such as drought and poor weather conditions, led to a severe food shortage in Ukraine. The Soviet government denied the existence of the famine and refused to provide aid to the affected regions, exacerbating the crisis.
The Holodomor is widely regarded as a man-made famine, caused by the policies and actions of the Soviet government. While Marxist ideology was a driving force behind these policies, it is important to note that not all adherents of Marxism or socialism support or condone the actions of the Soviet government during this period.
Holodomor A Man Made Ukraine Famine, Nightmare Fodder, Avoid a Repeat
There are reports and accounts of cannibalism occurring during the Holodomor, particularly in the most affected regions of Ukraine. The famine was so severe that people resorted to extreme measures to survive, including eating animals and even other human beings. However, it's important to note that cannibalism was not widespread and only occurred in isolated cases.
The Soviet government attempted to cover up the extent of the famine and prevent information from getting out to the rest of the world. Many journalists and aid organizations were denied access to Ukraine during the height of the famine, and Soviet officials even confiscated and destroyed grain stocks in order to prevent starving Ukrainians from accessing them.
The Holodomor is considered a tragic and devastating event in Ukrainian history, and its impact is still felt to this day. The famine had a significant impact on Ukrainian culture, politics, and society, and has been the subject of much research and debate in the years since it occurred. Ukrainians are in no rush to repeat this nightmare but with so many women and children stolen and taken to Russia God only knows what's happened to them.
Modern Day Russo-Ukraine Conflict, Ukrainians Long Memory, Die Trying
The Ukraine war, also known as the Russo-Ukrainian War, started in 2014 after a series of events that included a popular uprising against the Ukrainian government and a subsequent change in leadership. The conflict began when Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in March 2014, which sparked unrest in eastern Ukraine, where many ethnic Russians live.
The conflict escalated when pro-Russian separatists in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of eastern Ukraine declared independence from Ukraine and began fighting Ukrainian government forces. The Ukrainian government, with the support of the West, has accused Russia of providing weapons, training, and funding to the separatists, and of sending Russian troops to fight alongside them. Russia denies involvement in the conflict, but evidence has shown otherwise.
The root causes of the Ukraine war are complex and include historical, cultural, and political factors. These include Ukraine's history as a former Soviet republic, its complex relationship with Russia, and political and economic grievances of various groups within Ukraine. The conflict is ongoing and continues to have devastating effects on the people of Ukraine.
