Welcome to our brief selection of Gareth's articles covering his trips to the Soviet Union, including his 1933 Famine Exposure and the journalistic aftermath which it caused, up until the present day with Ukrainian calls for the revocation of Walter Duranty's 1932 Pulitzer prize for Correspondence, from The New York Times for his dishonest reporting of the Holodomor.

From this page you can follow hyperlinks to a sample of his articles or alternatively using the navigational buttons above - We hope that you will enjoy browsing through some of his articles for The Western Mail (who have been kind enough to give us permission to reprint them).

For a full coverage of Gareth's Soviet articles, which provide a far greater in-depth coverage of this episode in his short life and major background information to the Holodomor Famine-Genocide, please check the Gareth Jones Archive website for more details.

Yours faithfully.
