🇺🇦 At the entrance to the memorial park in Kyiv, there is a sculpture of an extremely thin girl with a very sad look holding a handful of wheat in her hands. Behind her back is the Candle of Remembrance. This monument commemorates the Holodomor.

What is the Holodomor?
After the end of the First World War, Ukraine was an independent state, but in 1919 the Soviet Union "sucked" it into the community of Soviet states. The Ukrainians considered themselves a Central European country, like Poland, and not an Eastern European country like Russia. They tried to restore Ukraine's independence.

In 1932, not wanting to lose control of Europe's main source of grain, Stalin took away the grain-producing land from the Ukrainian peasants and also all the grain, creating an artificial famine. The goal was to "teach Ukrainians to be smart" so that they would no longer oppose Moscow. The people who produced the most grain in Europe were left without a crumb of bread.

The peak of the Holodomor was in the spring of 1933. In Ukraine at that time, 17 people died of hunger every minute, more than 1,000 every hour, and almost 24,500 every day. People were starving to death in the streets.

Stalin settled Russians into the emptied Ukrainian villages. During the next census, there was a huge shortage of population. Therefore, the Soviet government annulled the census, destroyed the census documents, and the census takers were shot or sent to the gulag, in order to hide the truth.

Today, 28 countries around the world present the Holodomor as genocide against Ukrainians. You couldn't learn about in school because almost all evidence was destroyed and victims were covered up for decades. To this day mass graves are being uncovered.

Books are now being written. Movies are now being made (see Bitter Harvest movie from 2017 starring Max Irons and Barry Pepper: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3182620/).
The Holodomor at that time broke the Ukrainian resistance, but it made the desire for Ukraine's independence from Russia eternal.

Playing piano outside rail station in Ukraine. The sirens started and people were moved to safety but he refused to stop playing.
The expression on his face says it all...

Banned from facepuke for 24 hours for saying...

"Burn Putin and his regime." On a reply to a topic about the war.

So now Facebook is a communist supporter by blocking free speach? Seems like it. Putin can bomb, murder, mutilate and destroy, but Facebook bans me for that comment, the world has gone mad.

Putin is a child-killing coward. But worse cowards are his snivelling hench-men who enable him.
They know full well what is happening but are more concerned with their own welfare than with stopping his madness.
Time and again throughout history, evil men gain power and thousands, if not millions, die as a result.
Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

A headline from the Irish news.
Cry for help from Russian Embassy in Ireland as it faces ‘fuel shortage

I think we could get a crowd fund for a tanker of fuel, to heat the poor soles. One compartment of heating oil the others full of petrol, I'll deliver it, I'm sure someone can show me how to make it go bang.
