President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on the Israeli side to recognize the Holodomor of  1932-33 as an act of genocide against the Ukrainian people. The Head of State told this after the negotiations with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is on an official visit to Ukraine.


"Ukraine and Israel have long-standing historical ties. Our nations have together experienced all the tragedies of recent history - the Holodomor and the Holocaust, the Second World War, the totalitarian Soviet regime,” the President emphasized.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy reminded that together with the Prime Minister of Israel, he would visit the National Historical and Memorial Reserve “Babyn Yar” today to pay tribute to the victims of the Babyn Yar tragedy and the Holocaust.

"These are bitter moments of our common history, which should unite us with the hope for a bright future and the impossibility of repeating such tragedies," the Head of State emphasized.

In turn, Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu noted that mass execution of Jews in Babyn Yar was an example of a common tragedy of Ukrainian and Jewish nations.
