A monument commemorating the millions of Ukrainians who died during the 1932-1933 famine was unveiled in the U.S. capital on Nov. 7.

The event was attended by Ukraine's first lady, Maryna Poroshenko, U.S. officials, representatives of the diplomatic corps, as well as thousands of Ukrainians and Ukrainian-Americans from different states.


Maryna Poroshenko thanked the Ukrainian world community for tremendous efforts on the restoration of justice and recognition of the Ukrainian genocide.

"I am also grateful to the American people for their support, condolences and condemnation of those who committed the crime against the Ukrainian nation - both a century ago and today," the president's spouse said.

Maryna Poroshenko also expressed gratitude to the author of the Memorial Larysa Kurylas for creative embodiment of historical truth.


Memorial to Victims of Holodomor in Ukraine in 1932-1933 is a nine-meter-long monument in the form of a massive bronze field of ears. It is located near the building of the Congress, next to the Central Station (Union Station), where millions of people arrive every year when visiting Washington, D.C.
