At the 10th meeting of the Public Council for Cooperation with Religious Organizations of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine, it was decided to continue commemorations of the victims of Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine. In particular, the council supported the initiative of the Secretary of Synod of Bishops of Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church Bohdan Dzyurakh, to provide symbolic assistance to the countries of Africa and Asia, which suffer the most from hunger. This was reported by the press service of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry.
"Having survived the tragedy of the intentional annihilation of the Ukrainian peasantry, when the totalitarian regime imposed on world the silence about the facts of mass killing by famine, Ukraine will honor the memory of the victims of the Holodomor by providing assistance to the population of other countries that suffers from hunger," the message said.
Under the slogan "Do not cry, but act! Indifference kills!" it is planned to attract to the initiative not only official structures, but also Ukrainians in the country and abroad.
As it was reported earlier Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and chairman of the Austrian Parliament Wolfgang Sobotka discussed a wide range of political issues, including the situation in Donbas and the importance of anti-Russian sanctions.
The head of the Ukrainian state urged the Austrian parliament to recognize the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as the genocide of the Ukrainian nation.
