Dates in History
1918—Pavlic Morozov, the most famous traitor in Russian history, is born.
In the 30s the Soviet government tries to take possession of everything that peasants produce. The people who dont want to give away what they earned are called kulaks, and they are often sent to concentration camp or executed. Pavlik Morozov informs on his father, that he cooperates with kulaks. In the existence of the USSR he was considered a national hero; today he is an anti-hero, his name became a common noun, meaning a traitor.
