Attached is a 1923 article from THE LITERARY DIGEST regarding the Soviet Famine and the crude manner in which the Russian Reds attempted to keep the facts of it hidden from the international press:
"Indignant accusations of trickery in dealing with the grain supply, which have been launched against the Russian Soviet Government by American and European editors, who were amazed to find that Russia was exporting grain in the midst of a new famine, are not particularly noticed by the Moscow press, which however, in such journals as the Moscow 'Isvicstia' and the 'Economcheskaia Gizn' feature reports of starvation in the Volga provinces."
