Ukrainian President Viktor Yuschenko has called on the international community and governments around the world to condemn the crimes committed by the Stalin regime and to declare the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as a genocide against the Ukrainian people.
"The crimes of the Stalin regime - the 1932-1933 famine-genocide in Ukraine, the major terror of the 1930s - should be fully condemned by the international community. It is the duty of all countries, political and public forces that accept the values of democracy," Yuschenko said.
