“Dementors” at the Jewish cemetery at Babyn Yar, the site of mass killings, were part of the installation for the 2020 anniversary of the Holocaust, set by the Russian-sponsored project of memorialization. Many Ukrainian intellectuals and netizens criticized the project for making a show out of the tragedy. Source: Ukrayinska Pravda
The competition took a new turn on 19 March 2020 as 30 MPs submitted their draft resolution to parliament forbidding Russian influence over the Babyn Yar memorialization process.
At the same time, a Ukrainian team of historians finally presented their concept for a museum to the parliamentary committee, to underpin the resolution.
Last but not least, the 60th anniversary of the Kureniv Tragedy in Kyiv remembered how Soviets tried to destroy the Baby Yar, flooding it with waste, and why they can’t be glorified by the new Memorial.
