5. There is also a very good, relatively recent movie

about the Holodomor, "Mr. Jones." I highly recommend it.

From what I have studied about Holodomor, you are spot on with the facts. I must pick up a copy the book you read.

I do know that Stalin sent hundreds of thousands communist activists into Ukraine to enforce his genocidal collectivization. And remember, Ukraine at the time was mostly divided between Soviet Russia (eastern part of present day Ukraine) and Poland (much of western present day Ukraine). The Holodomor did not happen in the Polish controlled part of Ukraine, only in the Soviet Russian part. Therefore, this is the reason for the population of present day eastern Ukraine having a higher concentration of ethnic Russians. Stalin and his predecessors settled Russians there after they genocided the native eastern Ukrainians.
