‘Most unfortunately, the president of Israel repeated the Soviet myth about participation of the OUN, the Organization of Ukrainian nationalists, in the Holocaust. Honoring of memory of victims of the Babi Yar tragedy would be more sincere if people didn’t repeat the myths and lies of those who erased historical memory about these victims’. Volodymyr Viatrovych, Director for the Institute of the Ukrainian Institute for National Memory, said this, commenting on today’s speech of Israeli president Reuven Rivlin in Ukrainian parliament.   

Rivlin spoke at the solemn hearing of the Ukrainian parliament timed to the 75th anniversary of Babi Yar tragedy.
