Summary

The number of people who died as a result of the Great Famine in Ukraine during 1932-1933 is exaggerated by the Ukranian Government.// The famine was caused in Ukraine by natural conditions and it had nothing to do with the USSR policy.// It is not serious to recognize the Holodomor as genocide, because the Council of Europe did not recognize it as a crime.

Disproof

Politicano’s article is manipulative, as it does not include the results of the national census held in 1937, which were concealed by Stalin’s regime, while the organizers were subjected to Stalin’s repressions. // The 1932-1933 famine in Ukraine was caused by Stalin’s deliberate policy and not by meteorological problems. // 17 countries recognized Holodomor as genocide and the Council of Europe, European Parliament, OSCE and UN recognized it as a crime against humanity. bit.ly/2sT1TTc,

The Western world is waging a war against Slavs, Russians and Serbs especially.

But we cannot and will not compromise on the principles on which our Alliance and security in Europe and North America rest" bit.ly/29Clz6e, . // Serbia is a candidate country to join the EU, the EU is currently having accession talks with Serbia. bit.ly/2tgDrdm,

Europe is at the bottom of the abyss – the situation there is chaos, immorality and the destruction of the concepts of parents, children, mother and father.

Disproof

No evidence given. It is a common narrative about Europe in pro-Kremlin outlets that there is chaos in Europe.

The state ideology of Ukraine is national socialism and facism

The state ideology of Ukraine is national socialism and facism.

Disproof

No evidence given. The far-right 'Right Sector' (often depicted as fascists by pro-Kremlin outlets) gained only 1.8% of the votes in the latest parliamentary elections, far short of the threshold needed to enter parliament. Ukraine's electorate clearly voted for unity and moderation, not separatism or extremism, and the composition of the parliament reflects that bit.ly/2dFFEdi,
