Besides millions of peasants starved to death, many thousands of Ukrainian itellectuals were deliberately hunted and exterminated by OGPU (later NKVD/later KGB). So it WAS genocide! It's no wonder Russia is so sensitive - don't forget who V.Putin was and is - a part of the same machine of repression. I am ashamed as a Jew and as an Israeli with roots in Ukraine for the shameful and cowardly attitude of the Israeli government. God forbid Yushchenko visits Yad Vashem! Gevalt! Tfu!
