Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Rozenko and chairman of the Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance Volodymyr Viatrovych discussed with the member of Board of the Estonian Institute of Historical Memory Meelis Maripuu the issues of the establishment of the Ukrainian exposition in the Estonian International Museum for the Victims of Communism.
The International Museum for the Victims of Communism will be opened at the historical Patarei Naval Fortress in the Bay of Tallinn. It will become the world's first comprehensive museum of crimes of the communist regimes. The new complex will combine the research center, the museum and the department of international information. The complex will be located in the eastern part of the fortress, where the prison cells were preserved.
"We express our gratitude for the initiative to create such a museum so that the whole world could see the truth about the aftereffects of the communist regime. This is extremely important, since Ukraine suffered the most, in particular from the Stalinist terror. We are still suffering their effects now", Pavlo Rozenko said and assured that Ukraine would provide all the materials necessary for the exhibition.
