The Kyiv Court of Appeal, in a ruling on Wednesday, accused Josef Stalin and other leaders of the former Soviet Union and Soviet Ukraine of organizing mass famine in Ukraine in 1932-1933, the Ukrainian Security Service said in a press release.
However, the court quashed criminal proceedings against Josef Stalin, Vyacheslav Molotov, Lazar Kaganovich, Stanislav Kosior, Pavel Postyshev and other Bolshevik leaders accused of organizing the famine, known as Holodomor, due to their deaths.
