Poland has not forgotten the anniversary of the Holodomor. A symbolic candle was lit in the window of the Presidential Palace. Paweł Kowal and Michał Szczerba also remembered the victims of the Great Famine of 1932-1933 in Ukraine.
November 21 is the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Great Famine and Political Repression in Ukraine. “As every year, the window of the Presidential Palace was lit with a symbolic candle, which is a sign of memory of the victims of the Great Famine of 1932-1933 in Ukraine. The genocidal famine caused by the authorities of the Soviet Union claimed the lives of millions of innocent victims, becoming one of the greatest crimes of the communist system,” the entry published by the Chancellery of the President emphasized.
“Thank you very much for remembering!” – commented the Ukrainian ambassador to Poland. Wasyl Zwarycz, together with embassy employees, the Ukrainian community and young people, honored the memory of the victims of the Great Famine at the monument at the Wola Cemetery in Warsaw. The Ukrainian Embassy in Poland also lit candles in its windows commemorating the millions of victims of the Holodomor. “Eternal memory to the innocent victims,” it was noted.
Anniversary of the Great Famine in Ukraine
The embassy recalled that a total of 28 countries recognized the Holodomor as a genocide of the Ukrainian nation. Paweł Kowal emphasized that this was done in 2006 by the Sejm and Senate of the Republic of Poland. The politician is a member of the delegation of the Polish Sejm that went to Ukraine. Poles were welcomed by the Ukrainian parliament during ceremonies commemorating the Holodomor. There is also Michał Szczerba across the eastern border, who in turn drew attention to the attacks carried out by Russia that day.
“They directed 70 Iranian drones to Ukraine. 40 of them to Kiev. 200 buildings without electricity. More barbaric acts of terrorism. Despite these dramatic circumstances, while accompanying Volodymyr Zelensky, I paid tribute to the victims of the Great Famine of 90 years ago! – wrote a Civic Platform politician. “The Soviet Holodomor and the Russian War of Terror serve as a reminder of how bloodthirsty evil returns if not stopped and punished!” – he emphasized in the next entry.
