    Press release
    Permanent Mission of Ukraine to the United Nations
    Постійне представництво України при Організації Об’єднаних Націй
    220 East 51 Street New York, N.Y. 10022
    тел.: (212) 759 70 03 · факс: (212) 355 94 55 · E-mail: ·

    by H.E. Valeriy Kuchinsky
    Ambassador, Permanent Representative of Ukraine
    to the United Nations
    at the Memorial Service of the Holodomor of 1932-33
    at St. Patrick's Cathedral

    New York, November 19, 2005

    Your eminencies,
    Reverend fathers,
    Ladies and gentlemen,

    It is a great honour and a privilege for me to address this distinguished audience.

    It has become a valuable tradition that every November the St. Patrick's Cathedral welcomes those who feel deep sorrow for the tragedy of Holodomor, generations have come and gone, but the horrors of 1932-1933 remain in the hearts of the survivors and their descendants.

    The whole truth about Holodomor is not yet fully known to the world. We strongly believe that the international community must give that crime its proper name - genocide, which was planned and executed to destroy Ukrainian people.

    The Ukrainian authorities take every opportunity to remind the international community of Holodomor. Addressing the 2005 World Summit in September here in New York, the President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko told the leaders of over 150 countries: and I quote "I am appealing to you on behalf of the nation that has lost ten million of human lives because of the famine - genocide arranged against our nation. At that time the governments of all counties turned their back to our grief. We insist that the world should come to know the truth about all the crimes against humanity. That is how we can be sure that the indifference will never encourage the criminals." end of quote.

    In his address to the 60th session of the UN General Assembly a few of days later the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Borys Tarassyuk once again drew attention to the tragedy of our nation.

    Seizing the opportunity of the Holocaust remembrance at the UN General Assembly earlier this month, I underlined in my statement that Holodomor as well as the Holocaust continues to belong to those national tragedies, which still await wider international recognition, I called on the representatives of States to recognize this crime against humanity as an act of genocide against the Ukrainian nation.

    Two years ago a Joint Statement on the 70th anniversary of Holodomor, supported by over 60 delegations - one third of UN membership - was issued as an official document of the General Assembly. In this declaration, for the first time in the history of the United Nations, Holodomor has been officially recognized as the national tragedy of Ukrainian people caused by the cruel actions and policies of the totalitarian regime. Representatives from different parts of the world expressed their sympathy to the victims of Holodomor and deplored the acts and policies that brought about mass starvation and death of millions of people.

    The House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress has adopted a resolution that allows Ukrainian officials to establish a memorial in Washington to honor the victims of the Ukrainian famine-genocide of 1932-1933.

    Ukraine will continue to do its utmost to bring the truth about Holodomor to the world at large.

    And now, ladies and gentlemen, let me read out the message from the President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko on the occasion of the holding of today's Memorial Service.
