"While certain Soviet agencies saw Jewish over-representation for a year or two, if you look at all positions of real power, Jews were over-represented for only a few years in the 1920s and even then by only 1%, being 5% of the population and 6% of the government. In Holodomor, which targeted Ukrainian farmers, Jews were over-represented among the victims. While hardly any Jews were farmers, 1.4% of the victims were Jewish. If farmers were picked at random, it would’ve been under 0.1%."
