Presentation of scientific materials about the losses of Ukrainians from Holodomor

4 July 2017

In the doctrine of international law the genocide is called “crime of crimes”. Genocide – is the extermination of not only individuals, but also of cultures and nations. The loss of the parts of all that forms a nation – the unity of minds, ideas, languages, customs– is also a loss of that, which is a mean of civilization development. Unfortunately, Ukrainians are among those nations that survived genocide. The magnitude of demographic, cultural, and social losses from the Holodomor are still felt in 85 years after the crime. The study of these aspects has a great importance not only for Ukrainian society, but also for the world community.
