The completion of the construction of the National Museum “Holodomor Victims Memorial” in Kyiv is a matter of honor for us and a testimony to the restoration of historical justice for millions of innocent victims. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman was quoted as saying while visiting the Museum and getting familiarized with the project of the second stage of construction of the Memorial on the eve of the anniversary of the Holodomor of 1932-33.

According to the plans of architects, it will be "hidden" in the Dnipro slope, which is now being fortified, thereby providing an opportunity not to change the landscape and to preserve the idea of the museum - as candles of memory. The project has been approved by UNESCO.

Speaking about funding the work, Volodymyr Groysman expressed resoluteness to come up with a proposal to allocate 50% of the required sum from the State Budget. "Besides, I shall appeal to Ukrainian citizens from all over the world, to the heads of regions and municipalities with a call to contribute to this project," the Head of Government stressed. "This is a matter of honor, and within 24 months we will complete the Museum."

The Prime Minister highlighted that history and truth should unite people. "Millions of people, children died of famine! We are only now starting to realize the scope of the tragedy," emphasized Volodymyr Groysman. "We will resume the search and restore historical justice for ourselves and for future generations."
