According to him, the criminal liability for the Holodomor rejection should be implemented gradually. “People must participate in this process. And the final decision which will be taken in the parliament must be logical and it must not arouse the resistance of people in very important, sensible, and national theme which is tragic,” he said.

The Minister of Justice has emphasized that the theme of the Holodomor is the question of the Ukrainian unity. “And it can’t be the theme for the resistance,” he added.

As a reminder, On October 23 President Yushchenko proposed the parliament to implement the criminal liability for the Holodomor rejection.
