Putin has been secretly plotting to starve occupied parts of Ukraine by stealing food and supplies to fill Russia’s fast-depleting stocks.
Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and consecutive economic sanctions brought on by the West, crippling food shortages have begun affecting stores and storages across Russia.
A Kremlin mouthpiece and pro-Putin politician has since revealed that the government is planning to seize Ukrainian supplies in occupied regions and bring them to Russia to meet local demands.
The shocking plan, which echoes Joseph Stalin’s ‘hunger extermination’ that resulted in up to five million Ukrainian casualties, was presented by pro-Putin regional politician Vladislav Zyryanov.
In a now-deleted statement, he wrote that Kremlin aims “to increase the volume of supplies for domestic Russian consumers by moving food from other southern [Ukrainian] regions taken under its control.”
The head of the Krasnoyarsk agriculture committee added that Russia’s actions were “economically justified, given the withdrawal of many suppliers of seeds and fertilizers from the Russian market.”
The bold comments present the first time a high-profile Russian politicians admitted that Kremlin is planning on meeting food demands by stealing food and potentially starving out the people of Ukraine.
Shortly after Zyryanov’s statement was shared on the Krasnoyarsk assembly’s site, the document was taken down.
If true, Russia’s plan to seize Ukrainian food supplies reflects the actions of Soviet Russia which caused the Great Famine, also known as the Holodomor, in Soviet Ukraine between 1932 and 1934.
The Stalin-made famine, which was caused by the dictator’s desire for a complete collectivization and state-run agriculture, resulted in the death of around five million people.
