The presidents of Ukraine and Russia, Viktor Yanukovych and Dmitry Medvedev, have laid wreaths before the Eternal Flame at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Kyiv Park of Glory. The ceremony took place amid heavy rain and hail. Then, from the Eternal Flame, the presidents went on to the Memorial to the Holodomor Victims, where they also laid wreaths and lit oil lamps to commemorate the victims of Ukraine's famine of 1930's.

All the angels cried to see both men who will not accept those who perished during the HOLODOMOR as victims of russia's GENOCIDE against the Ukrainian people lay wreaths at their memorial. Both demonstrated their hypocracy. Both have no respect for the people of Ukraine. Sad that Ukrainians cannot show the same patriotism that their brothers have shown when they were members of UPA.

Glory to Ukraine!

Glory to the Heroes!

Benevolent Russia is ready to save impoverished Ukraine from orange holodomor - this is the message both superleaders conveyed for great anger of the orange thieves. LOL :D

Since the Ruskies claim that the Holodomor affected everybody not just Ukraine I'm still waiting for them and their fellow travellers in Kazakstan etc to erect many memorials to Holodomor victims in their countries. Not very likely from those lying and thieving buzzards!
