    Holodomor remembered with special service from Sask. government


    Members of the Saskatchewan government joined the province’s Ukrainian community Tuesday afternoon in a service, remembering the lost lives during the Ukraine famine in 1932-33.

    “Eighty-five years ago, millions of Ukrainians lost their lives in a senseless act of brutality,” Minister Responsible for Saskatchewan-Ukraine Relations Greg Ottenbreit said.

    “Today we remember the pain and suffering of those lost, many of them children and honour the survivors. Recognizing Holodomor ensures we learn from history so this never happens again.”


    A candle was lit at the legislature building and will remain lit for the entire week to show unity with those around the global recognizing the Holodomor genocide.

    Saskatchewan’s legislative assembly was the first jurisdiction in North America to recognize this genocide and passed the Ukrainian Famine and Genocide (Holodomor) Memorial Day Act in 2008.

    STATEMENT BY HEATHER NAUERT, SPOKESPERSON

    November 23, 2018
    Marking the 85th Anniversary of the Ukrainian Holodomor


    This month we join Ukrainians around the world in marking the 85th anniversary of the Holodomor, when millions of innocent Ukrainians were deliberately starved to death by the regime of Josef Stalin.

    The Soviet Union’s barbaric seizure of Ukrainian land and crops was undertaken with the deliberate political goal of subjugating the Ukrainian people and nation. This catastrophic man-made famine was one of the most atrocious acts of the twentieth century and a brutal reminder of the crimes of communism.

    Today, Ukrainians are once again dying as a result of Russia attempts to destroy the identity and Western aspirations of the people of Ukraine. Russia’s ongoing aggression in eastern Ukraine has resulted in more than 10,000 deaths. However, Russia will not vanquish the resilient Ukrainian spirit, nor dampen Ukrainians’ desire for a better future.


    As we remember the Holodomor’s millions of innocent victims, we reaffirm our unwavering support for Ukraine’s national sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as the Ukrainian people’s right to chart their own course.

    I didn't realize it wasn't...

    Opinion: Does the UN have the courage to recognize the Holodomor as genocide?
