PRESIDENT'S WEBMASTERS PLAY GAMES WITH HOLODOMOR

Ukraine

Holodomor logo on Presidential website - Yesterday afternoon we reported on the reinstatement of the Holodomor portal on the website of the President of Ukraine.

A number of sources who independently viewed the site yesterday said that it represented almost a full reinstatement of the Holodomor portal that existed on the website of President Yushchenko.  This portal was removed shortly after President Yanukovych took office in February this year. 

The reinstatement yesterday followed President Yanukovych's open declaration, saying that he has "always reacted to words with deeds...  When they tell me that I am allegedly denying the Holodomor, I initiate the declassification of archive materials and their transfer to the National Memorial Insititute (Інститут Національної пам'яті) where historians will be able to fully access and objectively study them...  I am opposed to polititians speculating over closed history".

However, in the early hours of this morning, less than 12 hours after the reinstatement of the Holodomor portal on the President's website, the bulk of materials have been removed, leaving just four sections remaining.

The Ukrainian World Congress has already reacted and called on the President to fully reinstate the Holodomor portal on his official website.  The AUGB will also write to the Ukrainian Ambassador in London later today regarding the same.
