News 19 August 2019

On August 19, 2019, Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu visited the National Museum “Holodomor Victims Memorial.”

The leader of the State of Israel laid flowers with candles to the sculpture of “Bitter Memory of Childhood” and got acquainted with the exhibition on the territory of the Memorial.

Benjamin Netanyahu is on an official visit to Ukraine and will meet with President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.

The State of Israel did not recognize the Holodomor as an act of genocide. In February 2018, Knesset MP Akram Hasson (Kulan Party) submitted a bill to the parliament to recognize the Holodomor as genocide. Ukrainian politicians have repeatedly called on the Israeli authorities to recognize the Holodomor as genocide.
