Essentially it was a genocide. In Ukraine began to destroy intellectuals, scientists, clergy, peasants and workers.

In the next year to punish to the death and claimed more than 80 thousand. The so-called courts of three-happened instantly. Today the arrest and tomorrow is shot. The body was smuggled.

“This was done under cover of night. In may 1938, was brought here more than 500 people. The Bykivnia graves memorial, one of the largest in Ukraine. Buried there more than 30 thousand victims. Their fate has opened the archives,” said Bogdan Bilyashivsky, CEO of the national historical and memorial preserve “bykivnya graves.”

Great-granddaughter of the repressed Valentine Nesenenko reported that her relative was shot over two horses, which he did not want to give away the farm. “Born in White Church, the master-gunner, who was to blame for the fact that he wanted to work on himself,” said the woman.
