The term Holodomor refers specifically to the brutal famine artificially imposed by Stalin’s regime on Soviet Ukraine in 1932-33.

According to the decision made by Kyiv Appellation Court, the demographic losses due to the famine amounted to 10 million, with 3.9 million famine deaths, and a 6.1 million birth deficit.
