Real Ukrainians, it is time you conduct a purge of your government officials who in the main are not Ukrainians. Get rid of the zhids once & forever. Only 50,000 remain.
Send them off to where they will be “happy” along the Mediterranean Sea

Are the treaties the only reason Moscow decided to recognize the coup regime in Kiev? Can Moscow rescind recognition once those treaties are all repudiated by the Nazi regime?

Don’t forget that many Neo-nazis infest the institutions and organizations of Ukraine. And they’re all backed by the deep state in the US. Nazis vs. Russians… a story that seems to be repeating itself. Luckily, the deep state will lose again.

I read the Holodomor is just a fiction fabricated by the Nazis.

There is another take on the Holodomor which is drought and famine being the cause of many deaths . I have not read deeply into this to know for sure .I guess it often depends on the integrity of the writers of the history on the events and often tinged with political bent also .I am not that knowledgeable on the Holodomor . The USSR was definitely demonized by the West after WW2 ,of that there is no argument whatsoever. The McCarthyism in the US is a case in point.they were seeing communists under their beds. LOL

It was a famine caused by drought, plant diseases like stem rust and harsh policies of rapid collectivization. Therefore, there is a certain amount of human responsibility, but it was absolutely not an intended extermination of the Ukrainians. One could find easily the decision of the Soviet government to reduce the exportation of wheat, which was done anyway to pay for the industrialization program.

Numbers aren’t precise as there was suppression of dissident peasants simultaneously. It goes without saying that the losses – which were admittedly not insignificant – were greatly inflated in the west and presented as a planned genocide. The first exhibits of this fiction became public in the US by Nazi sympathizers, aided by west Ukrainian nationalists (even though Galicia wasn’t part of the USSR then).
