Russia will “pay” for the famine in Ukraine during the Soviet Union that left millions dead in the winter of 1932-33 and will answer for its current “crimes” in the war in Ukraine, said Andriy Germak, the chief of staff of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“The Russians will pay for all the victims of the Volodomor and answer for today’s crimes,” Andrey Yermak said in a Telegram post, referring to the 1932-33 Russian famine imposed by Soviet leader Joseph Stalin, known as called the Holodomor, when millions of Ukrainians starved to death.
Today is the day of remembrance for the victims of the Holodomor in Ukraine.
In November 1932, Soviet leader Joseph Stalin sent police to confiscate all grain and livestock from neo-collectivized Ukrainian farms, including seeds needed to plant the next crop.
Millions of Ukrainian peasants starved to death in the following months in what Yale University historian Timothy Snyder has called “clearly premeditated mass murder.”
