The second stage of the Holodomor Museum to be opened by Independence Day - фото 1
The second stage of the National Holodomor-Genocide Museum should be completed by the 30th anniversary of independence.

This was announced in an interview with LB.ua by Minister of Culture and Information Policy Oleksandr Tkachenko.

Until August 24, the museum will be ready to accept the exhibition. "This long – term construction project will finally be completed," the minister promised.

The main reason that the museum took so long to build, Tkachenko called "a medium-term program, a vision of what is a priority for us," hinting that culture has not been such a priority for a long time and funding planning for three years has not taken place in this area.

"There are several such programs. For each one, there are specific steps with specific funding plans," the minister added. "These programs are being discussed with deputies, and a single program should be approved for three years in advance in each direction. It will provide a unique word "constancy" for this country.

The construction of the second stage of the National Holodomor-Genocide Museum costs UAH 1.3 billion. The project provided for the creation of a complete complex planted on a composite axis, combining the 1st and 2nd stages with access to the Transport Highway and the prospect of access to the Dnipro metro station.
