The number of people who died as a result of the Great Famine in Ukraine during 1932-1933 is exaggerated by the Ukranian Government.// The famine was caused in Ukraine by natural conditions and it had nothing to do with the USSR policy.// It is not serious to recognize the Holodomor as genocide, because the Council of Europe did not recognize it as a crime.

Summary of Disinformation

The number of people who died as a result of the Great Famine in Ukraine during 1932-1933 is exaggerated by the Ukranian Government.// The famine was caused in Ukraine by natural conditions and it had nothing to do with the USSR policy.// It is not serious to recognize the Holodomor as genocide, because the Council of Europe did not recognize it as a crime.

Disproof

Politicano’s article is manipulative, as it does not include the results of the national census held in 1937, which were concealed by Stalin’s regime, while the organizers were subjected to Stalin’s repressions. // The 1932-1933 famine in Ukraine was caused by Stalin’s deliberate policy and not by meteorological problems. // 17 countries recognized Holodomor as genocide and the Council of Europe, European Parliament, OSCE and UN recognized it as a crime against humanity. bit.ly/2sT1TTc
