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.

      Православный христианин Байден, гражданин Украины, обсудил с Варфоломеем, гражданином Турции, Православие на Украине в лице "патриарха" Денисенко!

      Байден, напевно, пообіцяв багато чого патріархові за визнання автокефалії Київській патріархії(узгодивши з турецькою владою)
