Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned the crimes of Holodomor and expressed support for modern Ukraine. Such a statement he made on November 26, the Day of Memory of Holodomor victims, reports Ukrainska Pravda.
Trudeau said that famine was an act of genocide, which goal was to destroy the personality and the will of Ukrainian people, but this goal has not been achieved.
"Canada, together with the Ukrainian people condemns the Holodomor atrocities, and helps to make its victims not forgotten. We also continue to support the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, as well as the important steps taken by the Government of Ukraine to ensure greater security, prosperity and economic independence for his people," said in a statement.
He also called on Canadians to remember those who suffered from famine and think about the important contribution of Ukrainians to the formation of Canada.
"Their persistence and commitment help us to build Canada's diverse society, which is our might and pride," - said Trudeau.
