Imitation of the work of the Institute of national memory has a specific purpose, I’m sure the leader of “Ukrainian choice”.

Ukrainian officials compete for the title of “chief decommunization of the country”, said the leader of the public movement “the Ukrainian elections – the Right of the people” Viktor Medvedchuk. In his opinion, raising painful for Ukrainians issues, Institute of national memory demonstrates a clear lack of professionalism and manipulation of historical facts. Thus, the most delusional, he believes the ideas of the Institute, headed by Volodymyr Viatrovych, combat 8 March, 1 and may 9 holidays, to cancellation which in the society are negative.

“Ukrainians did not agree that the celebration of March 8 – a purely Soviet tradition, proved that may day is celebrated in many countries around the world, and the chest came to the defense of the Victory Day”, – said Medvedchuk.

In his opinion, the nuances of renaming, calendar distribution and duration of holidays does not allow the Ukrainian Institute of national memory to attend to more important matters.

“The purpose of the Institute of national memory is, but it’s not “restoring and preserving the national memory of the Ukrainian people”, as stated in the regulations of the Institute. The true goal of the Institute is to erase from people’s memory everything connected with the Soviet period of its history, including the greatest achievements, feats and achievements. And with this task successfully copes of the Institute of national memory of Ukraine, more affected by amnesia,” – concluded the leader of “Ukrainian choice”.

We will remind, earlier the Institute of naramata wanted to do the March 9 weekend.
