The Great Depression affected Russia in many different ways, the

biggest affect was famine. As famine began to spread, people began

to die off families ate their deceased children as a survival

technique. Stalin was the ruler at this time, he created he 5 year

plan which was supposed to reform Russia, but actually set it back

a few years. Stalin would send out grain relief plans for every

region except Ukraine. In doing so Ukraine's population decreased

by 20% within just a few years. Overall the Great Depression really

had nothing to do with the failures in Russia.
