Where's a Cossack when you need them? Tragically, their native steppes was the epicenter of the Big Bang of the 20th Century when the Kremlin stole the Breadbasket of Europe to buttress its failed experiment.
These Genocides of 12 million Ukrainians in 1921 and 1931 included several hundred thousand Mennonite and other fundamentalist German farmers that committed the error of settling amongst Lenin's and Stalin's enemy. Sad to say, this Genocide and Pulitzer Prize winning coverup did not go unnoticed by the equally depraved Hitler, who went on to commit the Holocaust 10 years later.
This is the Big Bang of the 20th Century because WWII and the Cold War were the tragic consequence of this unknown World War 1.5.
