Last week, President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko, who has been serving his last days in office, made a loud statement. On January 14 he told the press that he was going to initiate the establishment of the international tribunal over the crimes of communism. For instance, Yushchenko said that he would make such proposal to the leaders of the East Europe countries, who, in his opinion, have suffered from the communist regime. The Ukrainian president, who thinks continentally, believes that the establishment of a judicial body like this should be based upon the precedent of conviction of the crimes of the fascist Germany by Nurnberg tribunal. In the opinion of Yushchenko, it "should
become the ground for passing a sentence to Stalin's totalitarian regime, which is the creator, the inspirer and the teacher of the Nazi regime in Germany. It was Stalin's regime that insured the revival and the establishment of the German military potential in the 30s".
As we can see, the Ukrainian president even managed to outdo all the falsifiers of history at once in terms of revisionism. No one before him has ever expressed the idea that the Nazi regime in Germany was initiated by Stalin. If Hitler heard these revelations he would have poisoned himself once again. Let us underline that Yushchenko's statement had its grounds: not so long ago, the court of appeal of Kiev voiced the decision as to the Holodomor case. According to the decision, it is Stalin, Molotov, Kaganovitch and many other leaders of the USSR and Ukrainian SSR of those years who are admitted guilty for "organizing the genocide-holodomor (starving out) in 1932-1933". Fortunately, the court decided not to make the case totally absurd and closed it in connection with the death of the convicts.
It seemed like the initiative was to be primarily taken up by the Baltic States and Poland, who has long been insisting upon the conviction of the communism; however, these countries were anticipated by the Georgian politicians. Vice speaker of the Georgian parliament Mikhail Machavariani stated that "it was the communists' power that overthrew the power of the independent Georgia in 1921" by introducing the troops of the 11th army in Tbilisi and by strangling the young Georgian democracy. In his opinion, in consequence of the "red terror" in Georgia, about 300 thousand people were killed, primarily the Georgian intellectuals.
