Along with almost two thousand people, Kateryna Yushchenko visited the Notre Dame de Paris to take part in the third liturgy to commemorate victims of the 1932-1933 genocide famine, President's press office reported.
In her short interview with Ukrainian journalists, she said “it was time Ukrainians and foreigners should remember and learn more about the famine.”
“We have no right to forget millions of the dead and should worthily commemorate them,” she said.
The President’s wife urged all citizens of Ukraine to honor Famine victims by lighting candles on November 26, at 4 PM.
In his sermon, Cardinal Andre Vent-Trua, assistant to the Archbishop of Paris, said the French vicariously mourned for seven million victims of the artificial famine organized by the communist regime.
Ukrainian Ambassador Yuriy Sergeyev was present at the liturgy.
