Under the fiction of autonomy, Russian domination provoked Ukrainian resistance. As part of his collectivization of agriculture, Josef Stalin inflicted a famine, now known as the "Terror Famine," on the Ukraine by seizing all the food from the farmers. Estimates of the dead range from five to seven million. Although many in the West were aware of the famine at the time, the Soviet Union and its supporters conspired to suppress credible information about it. New York Times reporter Walter Durante even received a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting that there was no famine. We now know that Durante was being blackmailed and that he actually passed along accurate but unofficial information through diplomatic circles. Nevertheless, even now, Soviet sympathizers continue, long after the death of the Soviet Union, to downplay the scale of the genocide. Because of this experience, many Ukrainians actually welcomed the Germans when they invaded again in World War II.
the Big News"
Regrettably, the New York Times seems to have been at the forefront of the trend of newspapers that nurtured reporters who deceived the public. A few will recognize the name of Walter Durante, the New York Times reporter assigned to Soviet Russia in the 1930s to 1950s, who portrayed the bloodthirsty dictator Joseph Stalin as "Uncle Joe" and claimed that everything was better in the Soviet Union. Malcolm Muggeridge and other reporters from other countries were horrified at Durante’s falsified reports of bounty in Soviet Russia at a time when millions were being killed by the Communist tyrants and six million Ukrainians were purposely being starved to death. Durante was eventually exposed, but not before his support for the Communist Soviet system had brought the aid that was needed to keep the evil empire alive for many more years than would have been the case if the truth had been known.
Winter in Moscow
The most notable among them was The New York Times' Walter Durante ... who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1932 for deceitfully propagandistic dispatches from Russia which routinely denied or minimized horrors he knew to have taken place. Muggeridge was later to write that "Durante was the greatest liar of any journalist I have met in 50 years of journalism." Yet Durante and the British Communist Claud Cockburn helped to shape Franklin Roosevelt's impression of [Stalin's] Soviet Russia as "progressive." He recognized the Soviet Union diplomatically and sent "the corrupt and gullible Joseph Davies" as ambassador to Moscow in 1936 "with instructions to win Stalin's friendship at all cost."
