Holodomor: A Genocide

The Holodomor conforms to the definition of the crime according to the UN Convention on Genocide. The Communist regime targeted the Ukrainians, in the sense of a civic nation, in Soviet Ukraine as an ethnic group in Soviet Russia, especially in the predominantly Ukrainian Kuban region of the Northern Caucasus.

The Genocide Policy

  • Confiscation of grain and all other foodstuffs in rural districts, including food inside the homes.
  • Enforced isolation of the borders of Soviet Ukraine and the Ukrainian Kuban, as well as the blockade of individual areas.
