Activists of a number of the Poltava public organizations which have put a lot of effort into perpetuating of memory of victims of the Holodomor, are concerned by beginning construction of a synagogue on a place where they put kalinovy Guy in memory of the dead in 1932-1933.
The ground in some hundred parts on Shol Aleykhema Street in the regional center became for a long time a dispute subject between the city power and representatives of local nationalist forces. This ground is allocated with the official decision of the Poltava City Council to the Jewish community of the city under synagogue construction, but activists of a number of public organizations disagree with this decision, deeming accepted this resolution with violation of the law.
In the spring of 2008 on a site of future synagogue kalinovy Guy in memory of Holodomor victims was put. Then officials took part in action Poltava YEAH even. But the city authorities counted this action illegal. Literally already next night unknown uprooted almost all saplings.
On November 24, 2008 public activists in a festive atmosphere established eight orthodox crosses on that ground. But by the morning them stole.
Yesterday under synagogue construction builders started fencing a ground with a fence. But local activists aren't going to give up and declare that will transfer dispute to a court session as consider that the Jewish community received the earth in defiance of the existing legislation.
