Acknowledging Holodomor

75 years on, 2008 has been declared as the year of commemoration of the victims of Holodomor.  We must ensure that an atrocity on this scale is never allowed to happen again.

Ukraine’s President, Viktor Yushchenko, has requested the world community to join Ukrainians in honouring the memory of the innocent victims.  In particular, he has appealed to all governments to support the UN General Assembly’s Holodomor Resolution, to commemorate the millions of innocents who perished, and to condemn this horrific crime.

The President has also called on all Ukrainians around the world, particularly young Ukrainians, to work together to raise awareness of Holodomor, and to commemorate the innocent victims. Acknowledging the Holodomor in Ukraine.
