The USA honored the memory of Holodomor victims in Ukraine, "forgetting" the rest of the USSR
The white House honored the first day of the weekend the memory of Ukrainian victims of the famine in the USSR in the period of 1932-1933, which killed some 7 million Soviet civilians, including in Ukraine - 3, 2 million.

Famine struck also by RFSR (the Lower Volga, the Caucasus, southern Urals, Siberia) and Kazakhstan. However, these data the White House did not mention.

"Today we join the Ukrainians here in America and around the world, to remember the catastrophe of the Holodomor, and the millions of innocent Ukrainians who died of starvation for more than eight decades ago in a result of brutal policies of the regime of Joseph Stalin ", - reported in the report of the White House, referring to words a press-Secretary of the Department.

"It was the deliberate withdrawal of the Soviet regime, Ukrainian agriculture crops and refusing to provide food aid to the inhabitants of the territory, which from the breadbasket of Europe has become a land of immeasurable human suffering ", - stated in the message.

The white House timed This message to open in the U.S. capital with the assistance of bureaucrats and celebrities of the monument to Holodomor victims. The monument was opened in the 1st from the most crowded areas of the city near the Central train station.

"due to the tireless efforts of the Ukrainian American community and friends of the Ukrainian people, the memorial now stands in the heart of the capital of our country, allowing the Americans witness the grim memory of the Holodomor and to reflect on our shared determination to build a better world ", - is informed in the report.

Ukraine has a law that recognizes the Famine of 1932-1933 that affected the majority of agricultural regions of the USSR, genocide. The events of 1921-1923 and 1946-1947 in Ukraine are classified as Famine, " the genocidal nature of which until not proven ". According to the Ukrainian authorities, the use of the word "famine" in the plural " negates the concept of Holodomor 1932-1933 as genocide ".

The famine of 1932-1933 covered the main grain regions of the USSR - Ukraine, North Caucasus, Lower and middle Volga region, a considerable part of the Central Chernozem region, Kazakhstan, Western Siberia, southern Urals. According to various reports, hunger cost the lives of 7-8 million people, of which 3-3. 5 million in Ukraine, 2 million in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan and 2-2, 5 million in the RSFSR. Hunger got the detriment of all the diverse population within the disaster areas.

The position of Ukraine on famine of 1932-1933 causes strong opposition of Russia. For example, in the capital of Russia believe that it is aimed at the separation of the peoples. In adopted by the 58th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations on 10 November 2003 "General statement" the Famine was called the tragedy of the Ukrainian people, but "genocide" is not a word was said. In the document, which is the answer to the call of then President of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma to commemorate the victims of famine in Ukraine, also called to honor the memory of victims of famine, collectivization and the civil war not only in Ukraine but also in Russia and Kazakhstan.
