KYIV........In the autumn of 2004, a complex in memory of holodomor victims will open in Kyiv. Kyiv Mayor Oleksander Omelchenko has said it at a press conference in Kyiv today.

In his words, at first Kyiv authorities proposed the Cabinet of Ministers 3 variants of the situation of the memorial. At last, the government decided to allocate land in Prymakova park on the bank of the Dnipro.

However, the Mayor has added, later this project was reconsidered with the Ministry of Culture and public, as a result of which two other variants remained - Volodymyrska Hill near the St.Michael Cathedral and Spasski Gate in Pechersk.

O.Omelchenko has said both variants are being considered, but, as early as today, the majority of specialists tend to the first project at Volodymyrska Hill.
