Remembering the Victims of Political Repression

20.05.2013

Remembrance services and ceremonies took place in many parts of Ukraine on Sunday for the Victims of political repression. 

A large number of the victims of the Terror were buried in common graves and their relatives still have no place even to light their candles. 

The Bykivnya Forest near Kyiv are believed to hold the last earthly remains of over 100 thousand victims of the NKVD.  Until 1989 the Soviet regime lied about the graves, claiming them to have been the victims of the Nazis.
