During World War II, Russian peasants saw any gains they had made during the Soviet takeover, disappear. Tractors they had been given to help modernize farming, were taken away or broken by Stalin to move them into farm collectivization. Stalin is said to have created an artificial famine which killed millions of peasants. He admitted that thousands of peasants were deported to Siberia labor camps or industrial projects.
