authorization of an investigator, informed the PACE official about the
progress of investigation into a criminal case on genocide in Ukraine
in 1932-1933. The Ukrainian investigation established that genocide was
committed by way of creating an artificial famine using such mechanisms
as isolation of Ukraine's territory by special armed military units;
inscription of districts and localities into the so-called 'black
boards', blockade by troops, ban on people's movement outside the
bounds of these areas, full seizure of foodstuffs and seed stocks,
trade ban; restriction of free movement of peasants with the aim of
looking for foodstuffs. In the course of the investigation, Ukraine
received absolute evidences of committing crimes against humanity by
the USSR top officials.
Genocide in Ukraine in 1932-33 is proved by
3,685 Soviet classified documents, including with Joseph Stalin's
signature, and many other papers, as well as 933 mass burial places of
genocide victims. The SBU official also said that in order to collect
proofs of genocide of Ukrainians in other countries, in full compliance
with the international law, the SBU investigators have submitted
petitions on providing legal assistance to law enforcement agencies of
Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Italy, the United States,
Germany, Austria and Poland.
According to different estimates, the Great Famine (Holodomor) took from 7 to 10 million lives in Ukraine, including around 4 million children, which was 25% of the country's population at that time.
