A Cold War kid with capitalist tendencies. It is his diary of life, work, play and music beyond Iron Curtain...
with your permission I would like to mention about "The Soviet Story", a 2008 documentary on these issues.http://ulasergin.blogspot.com/2008/08/soviet-story.html
Thank you for spreading the word, Dinc!I wish Russia would have more heart to repent Soviet crimes against humanity and more brain to ensure that they would never be repeated.I have no problem with personal nostalgia as long as it does not get political and does not disregard the suffering of others.
Thank you Ulaş, that documeentary was so shocking and terrifying (even to a semi-sovietcus like me) Everybody should watch it...that kind of history isn't what you would want to repeat itself
Taras,I think people should know more about Ukraine; how beautiful a country with such a big potential but how mistreated (even raped) by its own rulers and enemies...I will do my best to spread the word.
Why do people always seem to forget that half of the deaths during that famine occurred in Kazakhstan and Russia? 7 million people did not die in Ukraine alone, this was a Soviet-wide tragedy. And it's a shame that such a tragic part of history has to be politicized and used to stir up anti-Russian sentiment amongst both Ukrainians and Westerners alike. Can we not together condemn Stalin and his evil deeds as Stalinist, rather than Russian, Soviet or Georgian?
You are right. It is a soviet-wide tragedy and I personally acknowledge it that way. The way it has been exploited by ukrainian politicians is totally immoral.
