"We'll make this proposal," Nalivaichenko said as he addressed the cadets of the service's National Academy. "I'm confident that criminal responsibility is necessary."
He expressed his confidence that the Communist Party was bearing responsibility for the 1932/1933 famine on the territory of what is now independent Ukraine and the fact offered solid grounds for persecutions against the Communists.
"Young people have come to parliament now and I'm confident they will be more united and will show an ability to effectuate the changes needed in this country," Nalivaichenko said.Famine in Soviet Ukraine in 1932, 1933 and partly in 1934 that was caused by heavy miscalculations in Soviet government's agricultural policies is thought to have claimed the lived of 2.0 million to 3.5 million people. Holodomor Day is marked as a solemn date annually on the fourth Saturday of November.
Ukrainian nationalists and radicals interpret the famine as a manmade instrument designed purposefully to decimate the ethnic Ukrainian population in the Stalinist USSR.
Russian historians and social policy experts strongly disagree with them. They indicate that the famine swept large areas in Belarus, North Caucasus, the Middle Volga area, Urals, Western Siberia, and Kazakhstan and entailed a huge loss of lives.
Various assessments put the number of people who died then at 2.0 million to 8.0 million.
