President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu have commemorated the victims in Babyn Yar, as 112 TV channel reports.
Zelensky noted that Ukraine urged the international society to unify the efforts to prevent any forms of anti-Semitism and intolerance on racial or ethnic grounds.
“Together with the all civilized world Ukraine shows the unity and stands for the humanism, tolerance, liberty and democracy for the third ‘impossible’ – it is impossible to let it happen,” Zelensky stated.
The Ukrainian President said that the mass shootings in Babyn Yar can be described with the help of three “impossible”: impossible to understand, forget and forgive and to allow to happen it again.
“According to various data, during the Nazi occupation, between 70,000-200,000 people were massacred in Babyn Yar and this is not just the statistics. These are thousands of reasons for “impossible”. Secondly, it is impossible to forget and forgive. The Ukrainian people will always remember about these crimes against humanity. We will never forget what xenophobia and racism can lead to. Today with the feeling of great respect we give a bow and cherish memory about the righteous of nations of the world."
