Myronivskyi district

Kyivskа region

Victims: 700

The population of Tulyntsi village (Myronivskyi district, Kyivska region) suffered from the Holodomor-genocide of 1932-1933 in Ukraine.

In 1929, in the village, which at that time belonged to Rzhyshchivskyi district and contained 417 yards, the collective farm named “Ukraiinets” (“The Ukrainian”) was created. Its head was Seredenko, the head of village council was Chupys. Forced collectivization started, and the inhabitant of the village T. V. Lyzohub (born in 1901) was sentenced to 3 years of imprisonments for the resistance to it. The citizens were repressed; everything was taken out of their farms: food products, cattle.

In the book “Ukrainian Bread For Export: 1932 – 1933” (Kyiv, PP Serghiichyk M. I., 2006), there is the information on the districts, in which there were cases of undernourishment. Among the settlements of Rzhyshchivskyi district, there is also Tulyntsi village – 47 such cases.

From the eyewitnesses’ testimonies it is known that about 700 people died from starvation. Only 67 persons are identified, 23 of them are children. The cart was picking the dead corpses up along the streets of the village. The bodies were buried in the large pit at the cemetery.

In 1993, at the mass burial place, located at the cemetery, the stone monument “To the Victims of the Holodomor of 1933” for the costs of Tulynska village council and Collective farm named after Gagarin.
