    Pope Francis on Wednesday compared Russia’s war in Ukraine to the Holodomor famine in the 1930s, which killed millions of Ukrainians and was engineered by Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.

    “Let us pray for peace in the world and for an end to all conflicts with a special thought for the terrible suffering of the dear and martyred people of Ukraine,” Francis said during his weekly General Audience at St. Francis Square in Vatican City.

    Stalin engineered the Holodomor famine of 1932 and 1933 to consolidate power over Ukraine as he feared a possible secession from the Soviet Union. Many scholars argue it was a genocide.
