Ukraine in the early 1930s presented multiple challenges to Bolshevik authority. Peasant resistance to collectivization and failed Soviet agricultural policy precipitated rural unrest and a famine, which necessitated swift repressive action on the part of the GPU , the Soviet security apparatus. GPU explanations of rural resistance often took an ideological color, revealing the Bolsheviks’ obsession with foreign intervention, Ukrainian, and class warfare. The Ukrainian famine of 1932 and 1933 remains a hotly contested political issue between contemporary Ukraine and Russian.
