During the opening of the exhibitions, the Embassy and the Union of the Ukrainians of Romania joined an international action “Let’s light a candle of memory!”, dedicated to the 85th anniversary of the Holodomor . This year’s campaign particularly commemorates the children.

Having lit a candle of memory, the quests commemorated the victims of the Holodomor, the genocide of 1932-1933, with a minute of silence.
