The Holodomor Famine.

The Ukrainian people suffered the most, in the Soviet created Famine, during 1932-33.

Around 6 to 7 million people died of chronic starvation across the Soviet Union during the early 1930s.

Almost 4 million of those deaths were in the Ukrainian sector of the Soviet Union.

At the start of the 1930s, the Soviet leadership under Joseph Stalin increased grain taxes by almost 50%, and confiscated land, food and people who were unable to pay. Many of these were banished to the Gulags of Siberia.
