The court of appeals in Kyiv has opened hearings into the "fact of genocide-famine Holodomor" in Ukraine in 1932-33, Ukraine's Prosecutor General's Office told Interfax. Ukraine's Security Service SBU in late December finalized a pre-trial investigation of this case, while the Prosecutor General's Office examined the files and referred them to the court, it said.

In May 2009 the SBU started a criminal case in relation to the genocide in Ukraine in 1932-33, which claimed millions of lives, earlier reports said.
