AUGB LETTER TO PRIME MINISTER THERESA MAY MP

15.11.17


The Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB) has today written to Prime Minister Theresa May MP calling on her to extend her solidarity with Ukraine and make a mention of the anniversary of the Holodomor during the next PMQ’s.

The AUGB's letter draws on the bravery of British journalists Gareth Jones and Malcolm Muggeridge, who risked their lives and livelihoods for openly reporting on the horrors of Holodomor, while others publicly denied its existence.

“Malcolm Muggeridge wrote what he saw in his diary, “I must never pretend that I haven’t seen this. Ideas will come and go; but this is more than an idea. It is peasants kneeling down in the snow and asking for bread. Something that I have seen and understood.” Gareth Jones, in a press interview, said, “I walked alone through villages and twelve collective farms. Everywhere was the cry, ‘There is no bread; we are dying…” Foreign Office documents of the time show clearly that the UK Government was fully aware of the Holodomor as events unfolded in 1932-33.”
