The main stages of Collectivisation.
|1927: Collectivisation 're-launched'.||Government re-boots collectivisation and pushes for peasants to join collective farms.|
|1928: Emergency measures||Ration introduced in cities, requisitioning introduced.|
|1929: Dekulakisation||Compulsory collectivisation introduced. Kulaks rounded up and exiled by the Red Army and the secret police. 25K volunteers sent into the countryside to assist with this.|
|1930: 'Dizzy with success'||Stalin halted compulsory collectivisation, blaming the chaos in the countryside on the party members being 'dizzy with success'. Farmers returned to their own farms.|
|1931: Collectivisation restarts||Forced collectivisation began again, at a slower pace|
|1941: Collectivisation complete||All farms in Russia were collectivised.|
