This year Kazakhstan marks the 80th anniversary of the famine, which killed 40 percent of Kazakhs. Under the policy of forced collectivisation of agriculture, farmers in Kazakhstan were stripped of all their produce, leaving millions of people with virtually no food to survive. The famine took from 7 to 8 million lives. The most affected were the major grain regions of the USSR - Ukraine, North Caucasus, Lower and Middle Volga region, Kazakhstan, West Siberia, Southern Urals.
