Holodomor Memorial Day

Today is Holodomor Memorial Day.

A day to remember the up to 10 million Ukrainians who starved to death during Communist Leader Joseph Stalin’s deliberate plan to systematically destroy the Ukrainian nation.

Between 1932 and 1933, the Soviet state launched a campaign of terror on Ukraine. They forcibly confiscated food, seized farms and brutalized the Ukrainian people with mass arrests, deportations and executions.

Yet, the Soviet state was unable to destroy the Ukrainian nation.

Despite continued threats from Russia, Ukraine remains free and independent.
