The channel RT mentions a VISA card for the rememberence of the 'Holodomor' famine which claimed 3 million deads in Ukraine.
One of the most painful episodes in the history of Ukraine is being used by a bank in the US for commercial gain. It is offering customers the chance to go shopping with a famine-themed credit card -- a move being seen in Ukraine as a moral outrage.
The catastrophic 1932-1933 famine -- known as the Holodomor -- claimed at least 3 million lives in Ukraine alone, with several more million perishing across what is now central Russia and Kazakhstan.
