Without the Holodomor, people like Yanuconvict would not live on Ukrainian territory. Maybe they do not like to be reminded of the reason they came to be in Ukraine.

Yanukovych is the guy that claims that the Holodomor was not genocide.

Who needs this turd at the commemoration.

Holodomor is invention of the nazi xoxol traitors the Ukraine people kicked in the arse out of Ukraine.

Their powerless whine is most entertaining, heh, heh, heh :D

The FAMINE of 1932 afflicted wide range of countries in Europe due to severe drought and poor harvest. The W Ukraine under Poland control also had famine, but the xoxol idiots keep their stinker traps shut about this fact.

The bad harvest in the USSR at the times compounded with Stalin policy of collectivization and industrialization led to mass starvation of RUSSIANS in Volga region, Kazakstan and E Ukraine.

The E Ukraine was badly afflicted because the xoxols being slaves by nature bend head over heals to please their dear batka Stalin and appropriate all the harvest so in the region the russians and the ukrainians alike starved to death.

You are afflicted by severe brain disease heh heh dumb. Stalin and Hitler were buddies until they had a fall out. Ukraine had an unusual large harvest that was dumped on the world market for pennies on the dollar. Ukraine was isolated way in advance of the holodomor so when it occurred no one and nothing could get in or out. The Russians have been denying this event for all these years and only recently admitted oh yes heh heh a few million died. It was a a an accident. Your badly deformed mind continues to want to make slaves out of Ukrainians, evidenced by your referrals to Ukrainians as XOXOl's. Listen katsap, you don't belong anywhere on the face of the earth. To be a human is to be humane.

I guess all of the thousands of documented eye witnesses don't count. I suppose all these victims somehow 'conspired' to tell of the man-made atrocities (yes, man-made---when the last food stuffs are forcefully removed from the starving---it is man-made!).

&quot;nazi xoxol traitors&quot;

Now there's a really bright statement that deserves no comment.

&quot;mass starvation in Volga&quot;

Learn your history. You're confusing it with the 1921.

&quot;poor harvest&quot;

Wrong again. It was a pretty good harvest. Records exist showing exactly how much was sold on the open market to countries like England and Germany.

&quot;heh, heh, heh&quot;

First you say it was a &quot;nazi xoxol invention&quot; but then you go on to say that &quot;Eastern Ukraine was badly afflicted&quot;; and yet you allow yourself to snicker about the death of millions?

Your hatred of Ukrainians shows through and through. It's not about the Holodomor, or the Orange, or the West, or the Halychany, or Catholics, or Ukrainian Orthodoxy, or the Culture, or the Food, it's just about pure hatred. And what's really funny is that you don't even know why.

Someday Ukraine's accurate history will be written by Ukrainians and not by the invaders of Ukraine, mass murderers and oppressors of Ukrainians.
