Russian Kolkhoses back then could have been victims of their incompetence, but Gendrikh Yagoda let (along with his boss Stalin), Ukraineans and Crimeans (not same thing prior to Khruschev) pay for it.
I am saying this, because some accuse them of serving Ukrainean interests* ... as if that were a bad thing:
At the same time, Russian officials have accused the leaders of Crimean Tatars who protested the annexation of serving Ukrainian interests and Russian law punishes those calling for Crimea to be returned to Ukraine.
And where does this lead to?
For Kudusov and others in Crimea, the Russian takeover evoked tragic family memories of the 1944 mass deportation of Crimean Tatars on Soviet dictator Josef Stalin’s order, raising fears of discrimination and persecution. Their fears have materialized. A few friends of Kudusov who stayed in Crimea have since been convicted on charges of extremism, separatism and membership in banned organizations and have been sentenced to prison terms ranging from eight to 19 years.
I recall following with interest, even after my return to Roman Catholicism, the Gothic Orthodox Church. Using Gothic as a liturgic language, having their own bishop or metropolitan. I read about Gothic Orthodox being accused of National Socialism or of fomenting ethnic hatred, and being sent to prison. I don't know what has meanwhile happened to the Gothic Orthodox bishop. In honour of Ukraineans, Tatars, Cossack's, Goths (of Crimea and of internet), "Bandura" - Dmitry Seleznev - Kuban Cossack Choir./HGL
