|“Those who deny the Holodomor today loathe Ukraine deeply and resolutely. They hate us, our spirit and our future. They do not deny our history
but deny Ukraine.”
- Viktor Yushchenko, Former President of Ukraine
|"The aftermath of the present tragedy in Ukraine will be Russian colonization of this country, which will affect its ethnic makeup. In the future,
or even in the near future, no one will even speak about Ukraine or the Ukrainian people - and, hence, about the Ukrainian problem - because
Ukraine will de facto become a territory with a predominantly Russian population."

Resolution of the International scientific and practical conference called “Holodomor 1932-1933: losses of the Ukrainian nation”
The conference was held on October 4, 2016 in Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. The conference was organized jointly by the National museum “Holodomor Victims
Memorial”, the Maksym Rylsky Institute of Fine Arts, Folklore and Ethnology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, the Mykhailo Hrushevsky Ukrainian Institute of
Archaeology and Source Studies of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, the Public Committee for the Commemoration of the Victims of Holodomor-Genocide 1932-
1933 in Ukraine, the Association of Famine Researchers of Ukraine, the Vasyl Stus All-Ukrainian Society “Memorial”, and the Ukrainian Genocide Famine Foundation (Chicago,
During three plenary sessions of the conference there were 33 papers presented different aspects of losses of Ukrainian nation because of genocide committed by communist
occupation regime headed Joseph Stalin.
The key issue of the conference was the problem of demographic losses of Ukrainian nation during Holodomor-genocide 1932 - 1933, which is not solved yet and still
controversial. Despite the fact, that the Ukrainian historiography especially Ukrainian Diaspora is based on documents of foreign diplomats, scientific researches newly
declassified archival documents and published testimonies of contemporaries, calculates Holodomor losses from 7 to 10 million people, some researchers and
demographers referring to Moscow archives and outdated research studies, defend the figure of 3.5 - 3.9 million victims.
The analysis of experts’ estimates of demographic losses of Ukraine obtained by the M. Ptukha Institute of Demography and Social Studies of the National Academy of Sciences
of Ukraine was discussed by the conference participants. They issued that data used by the M. Ptukha Institute of Demography and Social Studies of the National Academy of
Sciences of Ukraine is incorrect and relative because their calculations were based on the basic data taken from All-Union census of 1937 and 1939, which were falsified. Also,
in their researches they used starting population figures of Ukrainian SSR as 31.7 million people which could not be correlated with the published in 1933 Soviet statistical and
economic directories in all regions of USSR. According to the directories there were 32°680,7 thousand people all together and 25°553,0 thousand peasants among them. The
conference issued that the number of Holodomor victims is reduced as it was based on the incorrect calculations. In same papers the using of definition "over mortality" by
demographers to determine the actual number of Holodomor victims (3 942.5 thousand) was criticized. Some participants of the conference also claimed the demographers
statement about non-consideration 1 606 800 people died in that time like due to natural factors and demographers’ insistence on the finality of their calculations.
