Also during the visit, the Prime Minister acquainted with the working version of the project for the construction of the second phase of the Memorial Complex – the Museum, and the presentation of museum’s exposition concept.


Volodymyr Hroisman emphasized the importance of conducting new research on the Holodomor, replenishing martyrology lists of the victims of the Holodomor-Genocide: “… People who are innocently killed, we do not even know their surnames, therefore, it is now necessary to intensify these searches, to update the lists of people who died from the totalitarian regime and thus to restore historical justice, which is very important not only for today’s generations, but for future generations as well”.


“Ukrainians were simply destroyed, destroyed with various means, and I think that we need to complete the construction of the Holodomor Memorial Complex so that every Ukrainian, so that every person who visits our country knows about the tragedy, about what recently, less than a century, we survived. And if someone says that this does not apply to him, he is completely wrong”, said Prime Minister Volodymyr Hroisman.
