ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Russian famine in 1933. The Central Executive Board of United Russian National Organizations in America has called for U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt for help in the famine situation. The unpardoned delay in forwarding the requisitions made by the government was attributed to the collective farms. Also explained is the implication of the famine for the dependence of the Soviet agricultural program on class warfare.
