 Rally participants mock Holodomor victims outside Ukrainian Cultural Center in Moscow. PHOTO

The rally challenging the fact of Holodomor – the man-made famine in Ukraine (1932-1933) orchestrated by Stalin's regine – was held outside the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Moscow.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Vlada.io, a few dozen protesters led by member of Moscow's Yakimanka district municipal authority Dmitry Zakharov said that they refused to recognize the Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian people.

Protesters held a banner reading: "The myth of the Holodomor is a lie and political gain from the bones." According to the rally participants, "the myth of the Holodomor" was coined in order to embroil "fraternal peoples."

The protesters also mocked the memory of the Holodomor victims by placing pork parts in front of the Ukrainian Cultural Center.

"The best proof that the famine of 1932-33 was indeed the genocide of Ukrainians is contemporary Russians' reaction to it. Rather than express sympathy and remember the famine victims together with Ukraine, Russia continues mocking them.

"The Muscovites led by a member of Moscow's district municipal authority placed dressed pork in front of the building of Ukrainian Cultural Center today," journalist Denys Kazanskyi wrote.
