This was reported by Petro Andryushchenko, adviser to the mayor of Mariupol, in his statement telegram.
He noted that the sculpture was located near the destroyed Drama Theater in Mariupol. The monument to the victims of the 1932-33 famine was erected in 2004.
“The Russians continue to destroy everything related to Ukraine, our culture, history and heritage. Rage. Just rage,” Andryushchenko writes.
Russian propagandist mass media also declared that there was no Holodomor in Ukraine and that the Volga region and Kazakhstan were the most affected by the “seasonal” famine. According to the propagandists, Ukraine is the penultimate city in terms of the number of victims.
A representative of the “public organization” from the occupied government said that the monument is being demolished to fight against “political disinformation of the population” and “the imposition of the idea of genocide and the Holodomor.”
Russian mass media claim that the monument’s granite will be used as building materials.
- On October 14, Russian artist Nadiya Babkina came to the theater in Mariupol bombed by Russia and declared that it had always been Russian.
