Post-holodomor Population Resettlements to Ukraine (1933-1934)

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The Great Famine claimed at least 3.5 million lives in Ukraine. Depopulation of Ukrainian villages was clearly visible. Hence, the Bolsheviks began the resettlement of Russian and Belarussian population into the depopulated post-Ukrainian lands. In August 1933 the Soviet Government created All-Union Committee for Resettlement – in Russian: Vsesoyuznyj Pereselencheskiy Komitet) to transport people from other Soviet republics and the less famine ravaged Ukrainian districts to the deserted lands.
By December 1933 from Russia and Belarus were transferred to Ukraine 21 856 families (117 149 people). Post-famine resettlements also took place within Ukraine itself. By March 1934 from the Kyiv, Chernihiv and Winnitsa oblasts were relocated to Donetsk, Dnepropetrovsk, Odessa and Kharkiv oblasts at least 15 thousand families.
Despite success at the beginning, the resettlement operation ended in a total fiasco. When most of the settlers found out that life on the black Ukrainian soil was completely at odds with the authorities assurances of ”new, wonderful” living conditions, they tried to return to their former places of living as quickly as possible. As the Soviet data show, most of them succeeded in doing so. The hostility of the local populace to the Russian and Belarusian peasants also had an important impact in this case
