Annually, on the fourth Saturday of November, a memorable minute of silence is held in honor of those who died during the Holodomor in 1932-1933. Memorial funeral services are held in the churches, mourning events are held in which representatives of government bodies, local self-government, the public, clergy and foreign guests will take part.
The famine claimed millions of human lives. For Ukraine, 1933 was a time of national disaster. The consequence of the crime of genocide, in addition to the physical killing of millions of people, was the destruction of the traditional way of life. The long-lived mass famine, for many decades, violated the natural genetic foundation of the Ukrainians, and led to moral and psychological changes in the consciousness of the nation.
The devastating consequences of the Holodomor hinder the progress of independent Ukraine. Overcoming these consequences is a necessary condition for improving society, national consolidation and building a successful Ukraine
This should concern every person and citizens of Ukraine cannot be on the side of these processes. I believe that having united in the memory of millions of innocent victims of the Holodomor, we reaffirm our common commitment to creating a bright future for Ukraine and promoting respect for the common human rights and freedoms, which are an inalienable right of all mankind.
Assembly President E.O. Romanenko
