Followers unaware of or denying the horror provoked by the Soviet Union’s communists against Ukrainians in the 20th century accused Castanhari of spreading “Nazi propaganda” and “disinformation”.

Through his account on the social network, Castanhari vented: “No matter what I do, no matter how I do it, no matter how I am responsible, it doesn’t matter anything, they will ALWAYS find something to want to question my work I swear I wanted to understand what I did so wrong here for these people to hate me so much“, he said.

In between 1932 and 1930, approximately seven million peasant families were wiped out by a deliberate and planned famine in Ukraine, and another three million died outside the country, totaling ten million needless deaths of innocent workers.
