1932-1933 genocide in Ukraine was invented by foreign historians, Tabachnyk says

Speaking to Argumenty i fakty v Ukrayini, Education Minister Dmytro Tabachnyk called the 1932-1933 genocide in Ukraine the invention of foreign historians.


“Residents of Ukrainian, Russian, Moldovan, Greek and other villages were dying from starvation. The famine was, to my mind, a political tool to destroy farmers as a social class. However, the famine didn’t have any ethnic dimensions,” Ukrayinska Pravda quotes the minister as saying Sept. 1.

He admitted that the famine of 1932-1933 and 1946-1947 in the USSR was man-made and was caused by the erroneous decisions by the regime.

“Still, the famine was never a genocide because it afflicted farmers of various nationalities,” Tabachnyk said.

 Simultaneously, Tabachnyk did not rule out a UN resolution recognizing the 1932-1933 famine as the genocide of Ukrainians, Russians, Kazakhs and Moldovans.

Putin and his trigger-happy entourage continue to provoke a war against NATO member Turkey, Russian journalist Sasha Sotnik writes in Facebook Jan. 30, commenting on the violation of Turkey’s airspace by a Russian fighter.

The latest statements by the UK and US on the incident made Putin mad, he wrote. 

Putin is well aware of the fact that he is given a cold shoulder by the West, and West’s patience is wearing thin and Russia’s state coffers are close to empty, Sotnik writes. 

Putin is a political terrorist, killer and war criminal of the global scale. His entourage is the same kind of people. They have taken Russia’s population hostage. The Russians are poor, scared and agrees to anything, the journalist says.

The power in Russia has been usurped by a group of terrorists. It’s time to start the rescue operation, Sotnik sums up.

On the one hand, Russia is brainwashing the Crimean population, while, on the other, promotes the atmosphere of Stalin purges in 1930’s, urging the locals to squeal on one another, Rustem Abliatif, the activist of the “Public Blockade of Crimea” NGO, told ZIK Jan. 29.

The overall economic situation on the peninsula is grim. There is a deficit of pharmaceuticals, Ukrainian consumer goods and electricity, he said.

Meanwhile, the Russian propaganda machine is powerful and uninterrupted. The locals are brainwashed into believing that, for Russia’s annexation in 2014, there would be a war on the peninsula, the same going on in Donbas.

Crimean no longer exchange opinions in queues as before. The atmosphere of Stalin’s days in the 1930’ is clearly there, the activist said.

The Russian authorities are siccing locals on each other, encouraging them to squeal – for money, the activist told.
