How did the Great Depression affect Russia?
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.
