At  a meeting of 6 November, the members of the Public Committee for Remembrance of the Victims of the Holodomor of 1932–1933 passed a plan of events to be held on 24 November, on the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Great Famine.  

Radio Freedom learnt from the Committee’s Coordinator, a historian, Volodymyr Viatrovych that the goal of this year’s campaign is to tell about people who saved their fellow-countrymen from death of hunger. According to the historian, “the national memory of Holodomor will be incomplete without the knowledge of the names of at least  some of such righteous people.”

The  Public Committee addressed workers of the educational field with a proposal to conduct during the remembrance  week on 19-23 November lessons of remembrance and to engage schoolchildren and students in public events on the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Holodomor.

The Committee addressed  the Ukrainian authorities and representatives of various states to recognize Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian people at the international level and to hold appropriate events to remember its victims.

      The leaders of the Russian Orthodox Church unfortunately are ignorant self-righteous medieval thinkers.

      Автор цієї інформації мав би більш досконало вивчити озвучений документ, якщо в нього, звичайно, була така можливість, і тоді б він побачив би справжній його номер, бо № 102 - це зовсім інше, але не

      Отойдите от Православной Русской Цивилизации поганые раскольники и лжепатриархи и обамо-меркельские каиниты, неужто забыли, что ПОКРОВ БОГОРОДИЦЫ НАД РУСЬЮ и где наполеоны и гитлеры обитают.
