Fact of the Day: Kazakh Soviets

Kazakhstan while not as a big or well-known as Russia, was part of the Soviet Union. The native Kazakhs suffered greatly in their early days in the Soviet Union. When famines hit the nation, its estimated that 40% of its native people either died of starvation or fled the country.
