News 15 August 2019

A monument to the victims of the Holodomor is planned to be erected in Poltava by the end of this year, reports resource 0532.ua, citing one of the initiators of the project Oleksandr Sorokovyi.

“It is unacceptable for us to forget these dates and keep silent, to say that nothing happened, to expect that some money will be allocated from the budget someday. We want to install this stone to give the impetus to the authorities to make a corresponding project with specialists”, the initiator of the project said.

Oleksander Sorokovyi emphasized that many people have joined the project. They helped to make a sign and find a stone which was provided for free by the Kremenchuk quarry. In the nearest future, a landscape designer will also help when the exact location will be known.
