There were three Holodomors in the 20th century: 1921-1923, 1932-1933, 1946-1947. At the same time, only Holodomor of 1932-1933 has the status of a genocide. The events of 1921-1923 and 1946-1947 are qualified as mass starvation, the genocide character of which has not been proved.

Holodomor lasted for 17 months – from April 1932 to November 1933. The researchers have not officially decided on the number of victims: they name the numbers from 1,8 to 10 million. Most of the experts believe that 3-3,5 million people died of hunger.
