Debt for 100,000 hryvnias, Holodomor Museum, and a fake book: what's happening

It's time to speak my mind. Recently I was conned out of 100 thousand hryvnias. This means that I'll have to work to repay the debts for at least six months. I've already said goodbye to the chance to get my money back. It turns out that money is a trifle compared to the scale of this story. Ukraine's national interests and the memory of the millions of Ukrainians killed by the famine during the Holodomor are under threat: no more and no less. There are millions in the budget, huge funds from the diaspora, large-scale corruption, and anti-Ukrainian special services in this story. I will tell you about everything step by step.

I've been working for 5 years to cover the events of the Holodomor, I've published a dozen books on this topic. The first was Andrii Bondarchuk's work on how Ukrainians in the western regions saved the starving, sometimes at the cost of their own lives. I've distributed this book to more than 600 libraries with the help of the Ministry of Culture and the Ukrainian Book Institute. After that, I published a book of memoirs of Holodomor eyewitnesses on more than 1000 pages, the late Oleksandra Veselova worked one (the compiler was Vasyl Marochko). I also distributed three tons of these books to several hundred Ukrainian libraries and abroad. Later, the National Holodomor Museum offered me cooperation. For several years of this cooperation, publications were published that (as I believed) helped Ukrainian society and the world to form a true picture of the genocide of Ukrainians by the Russian occupation regime.
