Vannykova: Communists cannot forgive Yushchenko the truth about the crimes of Stalinism

Another attempt to discredit the President of Ukraine (2005-2010) Viktor Yushchenko is a ridiculous response of the communists to the systematic activity of Yushchenko targeted to uncover the truth about the crimes of Stalinism in Ukraine.

In that way the director of the Institute of Yushchenko, Iryna Vannykova commented the statement of the leader of CPU Petro Symonenko on the need for the "Tribunal for the organization of fraud" of  "The Hospital of the future".

"Ideological followers of Stalin in modern Ukraine can not forgive Yushchenko the truth about the Holodomor and repressions, the inhuman tortures and mass executions of the modern Ukrainian nation. They cannot forgive the decrees on the Elimination of monuments to persons who are found guilty of genocide against the Ukrainian people, the very trial of Stalin and his henchmen,"- said Vannykova.

According to her, demagogic statements about the tribunal over Yushchenko are the pathetic attempt at any cost to prevent the international tribunal for crimes of communism initiated by Yushchenko.

"In fact, Symonenko has started his election campaign that does not shun any dirty methods in attempts to rehabilitate the reputation of the Communist Party and communist ideology which are rather damp. Even now they feel the threat from Yushchenko to their political future, and therefore they use any points to discredit him," - said Vannykova.

She added that work on the construction of the "Hospital of the Future" is open and transparent. All financial reports and other documents concerning the spent founds were repeatedly made public by media. Numerous checks of KRY, Tax Administration and the Prosecution had found no violation.

"Instead, I would like tovarish Symonenko also to give a report openly to his constituents about the means by he has a luxurious lifestyle, built an estate near Kyiv. Aren’t they those that he received from the current government in exchange for voting for bills that only worsen the welfare of most people in the country?"- added Vannykova.

"Despite the lies and attempts to discredit, Viktor Yushchenko continues to do everything in his power to reveal the truth about the crimes of Stalinism and debunk myths of the communist era. In his opinion, this is one of the main prerequisites to transform Ukraine into a democratic European state ", - stressed Vannykova.
