Kyiv: monument to one of the organizers of Holodomor dismantled

25.11.09

The monument on Hrushevsky St in Kyiv to Hryhory Petrovsky has been dismantled. According to the Centre for Research into the Liberation Movement, Petrovsky was one of the organizers of Holodomor, the man-made famine in 1932-1933.   In the 1930s Petrovsky was the Head of the Ukrainian Central Committee, as well as of the All-Ukrainian Revolutionary Committee.

This is not the first such move by the Kyiv City State Administration [KCSA]. In November 2008 it had the monument to Stanislav Kosior, also involved in organizing Holodomor and repression in Ukraine , dismantled.

The Centre for Research into the Liberation Movement has called for the removal of 27 Soviet monuments in the capital, including 17 monuments to Lenin, 2 to his wife, Nadezhda Krupskaya, 2 to Felix Dzherzhynsky, 1 each to Stanislav Kosior, Hryhory Petrovsky and Mikhail Kalinin.
