I guess they closed their own borders and starved themselves

Pravda is now claiming that the Ukrainians are distorting history regarding Stalin’s policy of starving the Ukraine in the 1930s.

Dmitry Medvedev sent a message to his Ukrainian counterpart Viktor Yushchenko in which he harshly criticized his approach to famine in Ukraine in 1932-1933. Medvedev also refused to participate in the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of Holodomor. The Ukrainian administration believes that the Soviet Union deliberately provoked famine in the country to exterminate the Ukrainian nation.

This is maybe about 1/2 notch higher on the morality scale than denying the Holocaust.  I’m sure Russia is going to be really helpful in assisting President-elect Obama to achieve the transformation of US foreign policy.
