The favorite topic of the "Ukrainian patriots", i.e. pro-American activists (anti-Soviet Russophobes), is the "Holodomor" of the early 30s on the territory of the Ukrainian SSR. This time the "historians" showed "Stalin's secret letter, from which the Holodomor began." It was posted by the History Ukraine community on its Twitter account.
This community claims that it was this document that "approved the Bolshevik Holodomor." At the same time, the “experts” did not specify where in the document they saw the mark “secret” or something like that.
All members of the Central Committee and the Presidium of the Central Control Commission of the CPSU (b), all the secretaries of the Regional Committees, Regional Committees and National. Central Committee, all party members of the collegiums of the People's Commissariat of Agriculture and People's Commissars of State Farms, all PP of the OGPU
- the document is being addressed.
Are sent for information: a) a note from comrade Evdokimov (North Caucasus) on sabotage in the system of grain state farms; b) a note by Comrade Balitsky (Ukraine) on the Petliura organization in Ukraine, which aims to sabotage grain procurements and prepare peasant uprisings for the separation of Ukraine from the USSR and the restoration of capitalism in it. In view of the importance of the documents sent out, it is proposed to pay serious attention to them.
- says the text of the document.
Thus, the document is a cover letter, which sends copies of the reports of several party functionaries for the information of a huge mass of other officials, party and state bodies of the USSR. There has never been any "secret" in the existence of this document. Stalin simply acquainted the mass of functionaries with the reports received. At the same time, the very reports of comrades Evdokimov and Balitsky, which Stalin urges to pay attention to because of their importance, are not cited by the "Ukrainian patriots".
However, this is also not newsbecause “Ukrainian patriots” regularly manipulate documents, trying to distort history. They try to present everything as if the Soviet government deliberately "starved the Ukrainians" and there was no drought that was then observed in many regions of the northern hemisphere of the planet. At the same time, they generally do not notice a similar "Holodomor" in the United States, which raged during those years and claimed from 5 to 7 million human lives.
