Requisition as a way of sovietisation of Bessarabian peasants

Tyragetia, serie nouă, vol. I [XVI], nr. 2, Istorie. Muzeologie Chișinău, 2007

Economic policy imposed by the Soviet regime in 1944 was aimed at liquidation of the private property in favor of the state property. Bessarabian peasants were forced to corvee. “Postavka” (obligatory deliveries of agricultural products to the state) brought fear for peasants. It was put into effect on the basis of decisions taken by the Party superior authorities and were implemented by the state. Although norms of deliveries were established for various regions and categories of farms, it has been found that none of these norms was ever observed. Thousands of Bessarabian peasants were convicted according to the article 58 (tax fraud) and the drought of 1946-1947 caused the most terrible famine in the history of the country between the Prut and Nistru rivers. The number of victims convicted and starved to death add to the list of martyrs of the Communist totalitarian regime.
