... Or, Short Treatise on Veracity of All SBU Claims.
Once upon a time (namely, in March of 2009) the very official, very trustworthy branch of Ukrainian Government called SBU (short from Ukrainian Security Service in... ahem... Ukraininan Language) launched the unprecedednted exhibition about Holodomor (Great Famine of 1932-1933).
This exhibition accorfing to the claims of its makers should contain the "newly discovered evidence" proving that Russians were the ones to artifically create the hunger.

It kinda backfired then, causing a minor scandal which weren't noticed much... unfortunately.

Let's look at the "evidence" provided by SBU then.

Look at the three diagonally (right to left) placed photos. They all were made in USA during Dustbowl Years!

Namely, in Arkansas in 1935:

October 1935. "Boone County, Arkansas. The family of a Resettlement Administration client in the doorway of their home." 35mm nitrate negative by Ben Shahn for the Resettlement Administration.

... in Oklahoma, in 1936:
"Children of Oklahoma drought refugee in migratory camp in California." November 1936. Photograph by Dorothea Lange.

... and in Oklahoma again in the same year:
August 1936. "People living in miserable poverty. Elm Grove, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma." Medium-format nitrate negative by Dorothea Lange for the Farm Security Administration.

Well, what lesson did we learn there, kids?
Do not trust these SBU deceivers? Right. And it's too bad you haven't got that lesson earlier...
