Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on Holodomor Memorial Day
The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, issued the following statement today on Holodomor Memorial Day:“Today, we commemorate one of the darkest chapters in human history: the Ukrainian Holodomor of 1932-33. This systemic and horrific genocide, undertaken by a totalitarian Soviet regime, killed millions of Ukrainian men, women, and children by starvation. It was a failed attempt to destroy the identity and will of the Ukrainian people.
