Denial of the Holodomor has long been a part of the historical policy of modern Russia

Monuments to the Holodomor victims are being demolished in the communities of the Kherson region temporarily occupied by the Russian invaders. The Holodomor Museum called on law enforcement agencies to investigate these cynical crimes and identify all those involved in the destruction of the monuments.

This was reported by the co-founder of the NGO "Decolonization. Ukraine" Vadym Pozdniakov said. The Museum's statement was published on its official website.

"In the Kherson region, bastards are demolishing monuments to the victims of the Holodomor. And we still have those who complain about monuments to Pushkin, Shors, and Soviet soldiers," he said.

Local Yulia Smirnova clarified that the first monument to be demolished in the temporarily occupied Kalanchak was a monument to the ATO soldiers, followed by a monument to the Holodomor victims and finally a monument to the poet Taras Shevchenko.

The press service of the Holodomor Museum clarified that the occupiers explain their actions by saying that the memorials to the Holodomor victims are just a tool for manipulating history, "artificially created to incite hatred towards Russia."

The press service emphasized that the denial of the Holodomor has long been a part of the historical policy of modern Russia. Manipulating public opinion about the communist past is an important tool for the Russian authorities to attract new supporters of the anti-Western political course of the Kremlin dictator Vladimir Putin.

In addition, the deliberate silencing and distortion of the Holodomor serves as one of the tools of the information war waged by the Russian Federation against Ukraine. At the same time, over the past decade, Russia has seen the moral rehabilitation of Joseph Stalin, to whom more than a hundred monuments have been erected in Russia.

"Such a policy of denying Stalin's crimes, in particular the Holodomor, genocide of Ukrainians in 1932-1933, mocking the memory of the victims, distorting historical facts, eventually led to open armed aggression against Ukraine, accompanied by numerous killings and violence against Ukrainian civilians," the Museum representatives believe.

They said they were outraged by the actions of the occupiers. The museum also appealed to law enforcement agencies to investigate these cynical crimes and identify all those involved in the destruction of the monuments.

"We sincerely hope for a fair punishment for the participants in these acts of outrage against the memory of millions of Holodomor victims," they summarized.
