Gareth Jones

the journalist who denounced the Holodomor

A Welsh journalist, he was the first to document the Holodomor, the genocide by starvation perpetrated by the Soviet regime against the Ukrainian population in the years 1932 - 1933. He visited villages devastated by food crisis without any escort, entered areas outside international control and wrote down everything he saw. He also convened a press conference in Berlin to denounce the brutal consequences of Stalin's policies but met with Western indifference and Soviet censorship until his mysterious death. He will be honoured in Milan on March 3rd 2023.
