Red Famine: Stalin’s War on Ukraine

Understanding Ukraine today is impossible without also understanding what the Soviet Union did to it in the 1930, says Anne Applebaum, author of Red Famine: Stalin’s War on Ukraine.

In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Applebaum describes Stalin’s act of mass murder against the Ukrainian people, how knowledge of this enormity slowly seeped into the West, and how its aftereffects continue to influence Ukraine’s present confrontation with Russia.

    I think the Russians were interfering with her connection there.

    The statistics of death inflicted on Ukrainian “kulaks” are staggering – the numbers range from 6 to 15 millions! Soviet government subsequently published posters condemning canibalism, that took place in Ukraine during staged famine. Deranged! Horrific regime!

    Thanks for bringing this book to our attention, a grisly reminder of how evil Stalin really was.
