The population of Kuleshiv village (Myronivskyi district, Kyivska region) suffered from the Holodomor-genocide of 1932-1933.
During the Holodomor years, the village belonged to Rzhyshchivskyi district. Before the Holodomor of 1932-1933, the collective farm called “Pershe travnia” (“The 1st of May”) was created. There were about 70 yards in the settlement, where 350 people lived. In 1930, Kharyton Ivanovych Papro, an individual farmer, born in 1983, was convicted of the resistance to the methods of forced collectivization and was sentenced to 3 years of imprisonment.
Repressive measures, used against the population, and starvation killed about 80 people. Only 11 persons are identified, 4 of them are children.
The place of the mass burial is located at the village cemetery. On the hill, there is the metal monument of black color. It is the sail on the pedestal with the flower vase and the granite plague with the sign “To the victims of the Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine”. It was installed in the July of 2008.
