The court verdict confirmed the conclusions of investigators of the Security Service of Ukraine on organization of genocide of the Ukrainian ethnic group, i.e. artificial creation of life conditions aimed at its partial physical elimination, in the territory of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in 1932-1933 by the leadership of the Bolshevik totalitarian rule: Secretary General of the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks (VKP(b) CC) Joseph Stalin (Jugashvili); VKP(b) CC member, Chair of the Council of People's Commissars of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) Viacheslav Molotov (Skriabin); VKP(b) CC secretaries Lazar Kaganovich and Pavel Postyshev; VKP(b) CC member, Secretary General of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Bolsheviks of Ukraine (KP(b)U) Stanislav Kosior; VKP(b) CC member, Chair of the Union of People's Commissars of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic Vlas Chubar, and VKP(b) CC member, Second Secretary of the KP(b)U CC Mendel Chatayevich.
In keeping with the conclusions of the demographical forensic examination conducted in the course of the pretrial investigation by the Ptukha Institute of Demography and Social Studies of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, as a result of the genocide, 3.941 million people had died in Ukraine.
The Court established that Stalin, Molotov, Kaganovich, Postyshev, Kosior, Chubar and Khatayevich committed the crime of genocide pursuant to Part 1, Article 442 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, and closed the criminal proceedings on the basis of Item 8, Part 1, Article 6 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine, because all of them are dead.
The presidential press service noted, President Viktor Yushchenko is convinced that this court verdict is epoch-making. "This decision restores historical justice and gives the chance to build Ukraine on fair and democratic principles," he says.
