Between 1932 and 1933 Soviet authorities confiscated the food and crops of millions of ethnic Ukrainians, deliberately starving them to death. A similar genocide was also committed in Kazakhstan, where 42% of the ethnic population was killed and replaced with Russian colonists.
Unlike the Holocaust, there was very limited Western media coverage of the Holodomor, despite conservative estimates putting Ukraine’s death toll on par with it, and other estimates putting it even higher. This was because prominent journalists were either friends of Stalin or communists themselves, and they refused to report on it.
Amongst these genocide deniers was The New York Times’Walter Duranty, while Welsh reporter Gareth Jones risked his life to get the truth out.

The Korean War lasted from June 1950 to July 1953.
This photograph was taken on the 26th of September, 2001. Firefighters struggle to extinguish fires at the site of the collapsed World Trade Center in New York more than two weeks after the terror attack.
This photograph is dated the 18th of September, 1950, and the caption reads as follows:
Two North Korean boys, serving in the North Korean Army, taken prisoner in the Sindang-dong area by elements of the 389th Infantry Regiment, are interrogated by a U.S. soldier shortly after their capture.
The Korean War broke out on the 25th of June, 1950. On that day North Korea (backed by China and the Soviet Union) invaded the South (supported by the United Nations).
