First volume of national book of famine remembrance published in Ukraine

Ukrainian President Viktor Yuschenko has participated in the presentation of a national book of remembrance on the history of the Famine of 1932-1933 in Ukraine.

The head of state said that the study of the Ukrainian famine of the 1930s is not directed against any nation or any state.

He said that it is necessary, first and foremost, to know and remember the history of Ukraine for the latter to be an independent and prospering state.

"If we want to answer a question what we will be like, we should know our history," Yuschenko.
