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

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

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...
