    Bukharin was actually convicted and shot in 1938.
    His trial has been probably the most known episode of the Big Purge. Quite orwellish one.
    Although i can agree that this cause of death was sort of natural for him.

    And one question
    Can you recommend books mentionining actual evidences of the
    famine in Ukraine? Not just descriptions. The subject is so politicised and lied lately
    so i sometimes like to make my own mind about it.

    Sorry, Aleksei. I’m just now seeing this post. On the famine, Robert Conquest’s book gets cited a lot: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0195051807/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0195051807&linkCode=as2&tag=thewesttrad-20

    I’m not sure what you mean by “actual evidences.”

    I’m not absolutely sure either.
    But there must be something that lets us know the event actually happened.
    That can be official documents, photograhps, mass graves. There are all these sorts of evidences about what was going on during the Collectivization for instance.

    Ok though. I’ll read that book you recommend. Will probably be enough for me.

    Malcolm Muggeridge was the journalist who uncovered a lot of evidence of the famine while in the USSR in the 1930s:
