A Hungarian historian has been awarded a high state honour by Ukraine for his research into the Holodomor, the great Ukrainian famine that killed millions of Ukrainians in 1932-33.
The website quoted the Hungarian news agency, MTI, which said
Ukrainian president Viktor Yuschenko had awarded historian Miklós Kun, of the Reformed Church’s Károli Gáspár University, the Order of Merit for Service, 3rd Grade, for his research work on the political regime of Stalin’s Soviet Union, which included Ukraine.
Kun has written extensively on the history of the Holodomor in several books and articles, has given lectures and edited a documentary on the subject.
