    when we will see the Nuremberg Trials N2?

    "
    In 1929 Stalin launched his policy of agricultural collectivization—in effect a second Russian revolution—which forced millions of peasants off their land and onto collective farms. The result was a catastrophic famine, the most lethal in European history. At least five million people died between 1931 and 1933 in the USSR. But instead of sending relief the Soviet state made use of the catastrophe to rid itself of a political problem. In Red Famine, Anne Applebaum argues that more than three million of those dead were Ukrainians who perished not because they were accidental victims of a bad policy but because the state deliberately set out to kill them.

    Applebaum proves what has long been suspected: after a series of rebellions unsettled the province, Stalin set out to destroy the Ukrainian peasantry. The state sealed the republic’s borders and seized all available food. Starvation set in rapidly, and people ate anything: grass, tree bark, dogs, corpses. In some cases, they killed one another for food. Devastating and definitive, Red Famine captures the horror of ordinary people struggling to survive extraordinary evil.

    Today, Russia, the successor to the Soviet Union, has placed Ukrainian independence in its sights once more. Applebaum’s compulsively readable narrative recalls one of the worst crimes of the twentieth century, and shows how it may foreshadow a new threat to the political order in the twenty-first."

    The US, unlike Canada and other some European nations does not recognize the 1932-1933 mass deaths (Holodomor) as genocide.

    Stalin was an ally of the FDR administration. Roosevelt even addressed him as "uncle Joe" while the purges and starvation policies were going on. Was the FDR administration aware of Stalin's genocide? Probably but it didn't matter in the grand scheme of foreign policy.

    This genocide should not be recognized, because by doing that we license all the other gencides that we don't recognize. For example, we don't recognize the genocide that Yugoslavia / Serbia conducted against the Hungarians and the Italians.
