Russia's genocide in Ukraine is being remembered.....Postyshev, Molotov, Stalin, Kaganovich must be spinning in their graves this year....

Holodomor Resolution passes U.S. House of Representatives...

....Whereas in May 1934, former Congressman Hamilton Fish introduced a resolution in the House of Representatives (House Resolution 399 of the 73d Congress) which called for the condemnation of the Soviet Government for its acts of destruction against the Ukrainian people;

Whereas the United States Commission on the Ukraine Famine, formed on December 13, 1985, conducted a study with the goal of expanding the world`s knowledge and understanding of the Ukrainian Famine of 1932-1933, and concluded that the victims were `starved to death in a man-made famine` and that `Joseph Stalin and those around him committed genocide against Ukrainians in 1932-1933`;

Whereas on May 15, 2003, in a special session, the Ukrainian Parliament acknowledged that the Ukrainian Famine (Holodomor ) was engineered by Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Government deliberately against the Ukrainian nation and called upon international recognition of the Holodomor ;

Whereas with the dissolution of the Soviet Union, archival documents became available that confirmed the deliberate and pre-meditated deadly nature of the famine, and that exposed the atrocities committed by the Soviet Government against the Ukrainian people; and

Whereas on October 13, 2006, the President of the United States signed into law Public Law 109-340 that authorized the Government of Ukraine `to establish a memorial on Federal land in the District of Columbia to honor the victims of the Ukrainian famine-genocide of 1932-1933,` in recognition of the upcoming 75th anniversary of the tragedy in 2008: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives--

(1) solemnly remembers the 75th anniversary of the Ukrainian Famine (Holodomor) of 1932-1933 and extends its deepest sympathies to the victims, survivors, and families of this tragedy;

(2) condemns the systematic violations of human rights, including the freedom of self-determination and freedom of speech, of the Ukrainian people by the Soviet Government;

(3) encourages dissemination of information regarding the Ukrainian Famine (Holodomor) in order to expand the world`s knowledge of this man-made tragedy; and

(4) supports the continuing efforts of Ukraine to work toward ensuring democratic principles, a free-market economy, and full respect for human rights, in order to enable Ukraine to achieve its potential as an important strategic partner of the United States in that region of the world.

Well Russia was lucky to have many rulers loyal to Russia who didn't give Russia away. Even CAtherine the Great became 1000 percent Russian and looked out for Russia's interests.

The fact that he was 1000 percent for Russia, rid Russia of the Viking rapists and plunderers, enslaving the people, defeating them at the Battle of Poltava, and then making the necessary changes to catch Russia up to the rest of Europe after the mongol invasion, He seems the best choice. But Russia was blessed with the greatest writers, poets, commanders and even scientis who all contributed to Russia's greatness.

I vote for Peter the great as well.

Swandiver left out Yaroslav the Wise. Was this a mere oversight on his part?

I bet if they had a similar poll in Ukraine Bohdan Khmelnytsky would win for saving Ukraine from Polish domination and then inviting Moskva in.

I agree.

Unfortunately Russians choose Stalin ahead of Yeltsin.

Russia's darling....Stalin!

Neofascist Russians insult the memory of Holodomor victims of Russia's genocide in Ukraine.

YOu moronic idiot, I know that, that is why I said "she BECAME 1000 percent RUssian. But then dunderheads like you with your heads up your butt can't understand the fine points of the English language.

She married into Russian Royalty and adopted Russia whole-heartedly and never sold Russi out to her German relatives. Ignorant fool.
