"Ukrainian President asks President Bush to recognize Ukrainian Genocide: George Bush Fumbles while Canada's House of Commons takes the lead and officially declares 1930's Soviet-engineered Famine in Ukraine an Act of Genocide" - When will President Obama make a statement?
Ukrainian President Victor Yushchenko is spreading the word... millions of Ukrainian Christians were intentionally killed by the Soviets. The famine (sometimes called the Holodomor or Ukrainian Famine 1932-33) was not a natural disaster, it was a carefully orchestrated killing on a massive scale. President Bush may be showing his allegiances by avoiding the controversy which would certainly be embarrassing for the Soviets and other groups that may benefit from suppression of the facts.

After eating her fill of the resulting stew, she looked for her daughter to share what was left. But all she could find was her daughter’s cap, all bloody. Returning to her senses, she realised she had killed her daughter. She ran into the village in despair, cursing the Soviets, was arrested, and shot.”

How could the world sit idle as millions of Ukrainians were intentionally starved by the Soviets? There were a number of factors that came into play including the Soviet...
