"It has been 70 years since the autumn of 1941 when executions of civilians began in Babi Yar of the occupied Kyiv. Thousands of people of different nationalities were martyred on these slopes," the statement says.
The Head of State believes Babi Yar was one of the most horrible tragedies of the last century. ""Our nation has gone through much suffering, survived Holodomor and the burden of the Great Patriotic War.," reads the statement posted on the official website of the head of state. It's hard to comprehend what happened in Babi Yar. It's hard to find words to express the depth of our condolences and sorrow," Yanukovych says.
According to the president, chauvinism, xenophobia and intolerance can not be fought only by force or politics. The struggle against this evil should pass through the soul of each one of us.
