On January 30, 1930, the Resolution of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union “On the Measures on Liquidation of the Kulaks’ Farms” was released. The Bolsheviks called these planned in advance actions “dekulakization”. This ruling has never been published during the existence of the communist regime.
During 1928–1931, 1,500,000 people were robbed; 352,000 farms were destroyed, and more than half of the dekulakized were exiled the the north of Russia and to Siberia.
To the 90th anniversary of the start of total extermination of private ferms in the USSR, the Radio Liberty together with the Holodomor Museum start the special project “Dekulakization: How Stalinist Regime Destroyed Free Ukrainian Farmers”.
The first material of the project can be found by the link. The series of articles will appear till November 2020.
