On November 25, 2023, when the whole country commemorated the 90th anniversary of commemoration of the victims of the Holodomor in Ukraine, the leading researcher of the Department of Ethnopolitics of the Kuras Institute of Political and Ethnic Studies of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, candidate of historical sciences Anatoliy Podolskiy gave an interview to TRC “Kyiv” dedicated to these tragic events of the last century.
During the interview, the scientist emphasized the importance of honoring the memory of the Holodomor victims – especially today – during the Russian war against Ukraine. This memory will help us to persevere and defeat the enemy. A. Podolskiy noted that the current criminal Russian political regime is a continuation of Stalin’s policy of hatred for Ukraine and Ukrainians. It was during the sovereignty of Ukraine that a true policy and culture of memory of people who died during the Holodomor was formed. It is this kind of memory that restores dignity to the victims and helps Ukrainian society today to respect and sympathize with those who resisted communist crimes in those years and overcome the enemy today.
