Loosly translates to 'death by starvation.'
Between 1932 to 1934 Stalin committed the most heinous of crimes by starving the Ukrainian people to death, while working them like dogs in the collective farms for grain export. It is argued that this was a wide spread USSR issue and partially a natural disaster but this is not the belief of many scholars outside of Russia today.
