comment Why did Stalin keep the famine of 1932 a secret?
That the famine was "intentionally orchestrated" is not a scientific point of view. It is not considered by any professional historian. Hundres of letters between Stalin and Kosior and others show that the famine was a surprise and the cause was not known (because the harvest was good). Stalin questioned the subordinates.

@Bregalad if he wanted to kill Ukrainians, then why he demanded to take measures to combat hunger from Kosior and others in the letters?

comment Did barracks exist in the middle ages?
"the concept of a standing army fell out of use by the Middle Ages" - this is not actually correct. There were plenty of states that could employ professional armies (Byzantine empire, HRE, Teutonic order, prince's druzhina in Russia, Spanish Empire and many others). Also in Italy mercenaries were common.
