Address of Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov on the occasion of the Day of Holodomors Victims

Today is the Day of Holodomors Victims...

The artificial famine in Ukraine - a real genocide of the Ukrainian people - is one of the greatest crimes of the Kremlin's slaughterers led by Stalin.

The orchestrated Holodomor was another terrible step-up of the totalitarian machine, a repressive chain, with which they tried to stifle the resistance of Ukrainians. In those terrible times, a piece of bread was sometimes worthier than human life. Hundreds died, then -thousands, later - millions...And near the starving villages, millions of poods of bread were rotting...

To prevent publicity, Stalin's executioners killed all those who tried to convey to the world the truth about what was happening in Ukraine.

The main goal of the communist regime was the desire to completely destroy the traditions of Ukrainians, our spiritual culture, memory, to suppress the liberation movement, to break the eternal pursuit of freedom...

Today, the Ukrainian land is again in a war, the best sons and daughters of our country are dying. And a well as almost a century ago, the Kremlin is the main culprit of the tragedy. But the enemy cannot overcome us! We must win! Get the victory for ourselves, for the sake of those millions innocently tortured, who dreamed of their free Ukraine!

Let us recall all those who suffered from Holodomors, all those who died. Let us light a candle to honor their memory at 16:00...

We remember!
