Despite a series of basic research based on factual material from the archives, which showed incompatibility of Joseph Stalin’s accusations of mass repressions and terror, the false myth, supported by slanderers like Solzhenitsyn, Radzinsky, Suvorov-Rezun, continues to dominate the information field of Russia and the world community. Dirty job of slandering Russian and Soviet stories continues in the framework of the global historical and informational confrontation between Russian civilization (Russia) and the West. Citizens of Russia (especially young people), not to mention Ukraine and other post-Soviet republics, continue to be stuffed with horrible stories about the death and murder in the labor camps of the Gulag (General Directorate of Camps and Prisons), stories about millions who died of starvation and deliberately destroyed in the USSR, about the alleged intent of the famine in Ukraine, about the inhuman cruelty of the Soviet punitive system, "the bloodiest in the world." Repressions against the kulaks and the “fifth column” acquire an absolutely fantastic character in these stories, and Stalin becomes a villain of a literally galactic scale. All of this is superimposed on the image of the USSR-Russia in the world - as the “empire of evil” and “Russian Mordor”, where the “ferocious” Muscovites live, quilted nests, ready to drown in the blood of all dissidents in Russia themselves, as well as to drive in his "concentration camp" and the surrounding nations.
The myth of the “bloody Stalinist regime” was created in Hitler's Germany. After the Nazis came to power in Germany, they applied informational and psychotechnologies to the appropriate treatment of the population. The minister of propaganda was Joseph Goebbels, who implanted dreams of a racially pure people living in Great Germany, an empire with a vast living space. This living space included the territory to the east of Germany, the Russian lands, including Little Russia-Ukraine. The conquest of living space meant a big war, a war with the USSR. Therefore, the Nazi propaganda ministry led by Goebbels launched an information campaign around the alleged genocide organized by the Communists in Ukraine, the terrible famine (famine), organized personally by Stalin. The goal of Nazi propaganda was to prepare the world community for the "liberation" of Ukraine by German troops from the "bloody Bolshevik yoke". Later, the Ukrainian Nazis (Bandera) used the same lie about the artificial famine to sit on the neck of the people of Little Russia, Ukraine.
In the United States, the same media campaign against socialism, the USSR and Stalin personally was led by the largest media tycoon, founder of the Hearst Corporation holding, and leading newspaper publisher William Randolph Hurst. He created an industry News and invented to make money on gossip and scandals (the so-called "yellow press"). Hurst has become one of the richest people on the planet and one of the most influential personalities. So, in the 1940s, Hurst owned 25 daily newspapers, 24 weekly newspapers, 12 radio stations, 2 world news agencies, one enterprise producing new themes for films, Cosmopolitan film studios, etc. His newspapers were sold in millions of copies daily . He formed the minds of tens of millions of Americans. In addition, millions of people around the world received information from the Hurst Press through news agencies, films and newspapers, which were translated and printed in large quantities around the world.
In 1934, Hearst traveled to Germany, where he was received by Hitler as a guest and friend. After this visit, American newspapers were filled with horror stories taking place in the Soviet Union — murder, torture, genocide, slavery, and famine among the people. One of the first campaigns of the information industry of Hirst against the Soviet Union was the continuously raised question of the millions who died of starvation in Ukraine. The American press has declared 6 to the millions who died of starvation in the USSR.

In fact, in the USSR at the beginning of the 1930-ies there was a terrible tragedy associated with the peasant issue in the Russian Empire, the events of the Revolution and the Civil War, the peasant war during the turmoil 1917 - 1920. and the class battle in Soviet Russia. This led to instability of agricultural production (plus mistakes and, possibly, sabotage of some Trotskyist managers, hidden enemies of Stalin and his project), and a reduction in food production in a number of areas of the USSR, including Ukraine. The lack of food has weakened people, which in turn has caused epidemics. It is worth remembering that mass diseases were then widespread. So, in 1918 - 1920. the Spanish flu epidemic, which was imposed on the depletion of people during World War I, unsanitary conditions, overcrowding in military camps and refugee camps, resulted in more than half a billion people being infected and 50 - 100 million people (2,7 — 5,3% of the world's population) died.
As a result, at the suggestion of the Nazi regime in Germany, a huge myth was created in the world that the Bolsheviks deliberately killed millions of people, starved them, and, on a national basis, allegedly mostly “Ukrainians”. In the wake of the campaign launched by the press against the “famine organized by the communists,” no one was particularly interested in the counterarguments of Moscow and the exposure of lies.
Nothing has changed in this method of information wars and the modern world. For example, the “Scripal case”. It is obvious that in the West they are lying. The version of the British authorities collapsed almost immediately. However, the reasoning from Moscow is not interesting to anyone. The owners of London and Washington control the world's main media, and they can create an information picture among the majority of Westerners and the entire world community. And all the excuses in Moscow are in vain - the victim has already been appointed. Another pebble in a common mosaic - “Russia - the evil empire”, “Russian Mordor”.
Thus, the USA provided not only material, financial, economic, technological support to the Nazi regime in Germany, but also informational. With the full support of Washington and London, the "Hitler" project gained strength in Germany, subdued most of Europe, then to go "crusade" on the USSR. In the West, they created the myth of the "red plague", allegedly preparing a blow to Europe and destroying people in the subordinate territories by millions, tens of millions. So, the masters of the West tried to maintain domination over most of the planet, and their own cannibalistic, predatory-parasitic essence. The Nazi regime at that time received colossal information support, Hitler himself was a popular person. And all in order to blacken the Soviet development project to create a "solar civilization", the society of the future and incite the then "world community" to it.
It is worth remembering that, in spite of the false propaganda of the world, blaming Germany and Japan for the losers of the world war, the USA and Britain sponsored the Nazis in Germany, helped them come to power, financially helped create a powerful military-industrial complex, Hitler made it clear to the Munich agreement that Europe at his disposal, and that the road to the East is open. Hitler was allowed to create a strong coalition directed against communism and the USSR. It was the United States and Britain that allowed Hitler to start a world massacre. And the real masters of France, knowing perfectly well the alignment and tasks of the new world war, capitulated to Germany almost without a fight, after the so-called. "Strange war", providing the Third Reich with steel backs for aggression against Russia-USSR. England secretly promised not to open a "second front" (R. Hess's mission) while Hitler was fighting in the East.
Thus, we must always remember that it was England and the United States that unleashed the Second World War (as before and the First World War, and dozens of other small and large wars, uprisings, coups and revolutions throughout the world), a deadly war for the complete destruction of the Russian civilization and the Russian superethnos. What exactly London and Washington were and still are our main enemies. Germany, as well as Japan, were only “rams' clubs” in their hands. Russia, Germany and Japan do not have fundamental contradictions, their strategic alliance would be able to stop the aggression and the predatory aspirations of the Anglo-American octopus. Therefore, London and Washington are trying with all their might to embroil Russians, Germans and Japanese, to pit them against each other, receiving from this a lot of benefits and the main prize - domination of the planet.
The lie about the “famine organized by the Bolsheviks” lasted until the 1980-s, when it received a new breath. Several generations of people in the West grew up on this lie, having a negative view of socialism and the Soviet Union. In the 1980-e years decided the fate of the West and the United States. The western project, the system of capitalism, based on the constant expansion of living space for plunder and the exhaustion of resources, was on the verge of destruction. The West was dying, because the socialist camp did not allow the Westerners to drain resources and energy from it. The USSR was at the peak of military space power, it was impossible to win by military means. The population of the USSR was morally stable, the economy as a whole was self-sufficient. The only way to victory was in the decomposition, "recoding" of the Soviet elite, so that she herself destroyed the Soviet project and civilization. Therefore, in the West, they launched a new large-scale information campaign against the Russian “evil empire”. This new “crusade” was led by American President Ronald Reagan.
Begins a new period to incite Russophobia. One of the most popular American authors who described mass terror in the USSR was Robert Conquest. Reagan even instructed him in 1984 to write material for his presidential campaign in order to "prepare the American people for the Soviet invasion." The text was called “What to do when the Russians come? Survival Guide. A former intelligence officer and diplomat, Conquest was a professional propagandist. He worked in the Information Research Department of the Foreign Office, created to combat Soviet propaganda, then became a “free” writer and historian, but continued to work in the old anti-Soviet direction. He gained fame after the publication of the book “The Great Terror: Stalin's 1968 Purges” in 30. The work was based mainly on information made public during the “Khrushchev thaw” (when they began de-Stalinization under Khrushchev in the USSR), it also contained information received from Soviet emigrants and exiles, including runaway Ukrainian Nazis and war criminals. According to Conquest, Stalin's hunger and cleansing led to the death of 15 - 20 million people. In 1986, Conquest published the book Harvest of Grief: Soviet Collectivization and Terror by Hunger, dedicated to famine in Ukraine and other parts of the USSR. The work stated that millions of peasants died from starvation, deportations to labor camps and executions.
Later, Conquest's deception was discovered. Thus, the Canadian journalist Douglas Tottl revealed the falsifications of a retired English intelligence officer and professional propagandist in the book Fraud, Hunger and Fascism. The myth of the genocide in Ukraine from Hitler to Harvard. " This book was published in Toronto in 1987 year. In it, Tottl pointed out that the frightening photos of hungry children were made during the famine of the Civil War. Another example exposing Conquest’s lies was the fact that Thomas Walker, a journalist who had long supplied the American historian with photographs and reports from the hungry regions of Ukraine, had never been to Ukraine himself.
Thus, the lie about the many millions who died from the “specially organized by Stalin” famine was revealed in the West. But the deed was already done, the true story could not break into a sea of lies. In the West, they fought an information war against the USSR and used fakes that were invented back in the Third Reich.
