On October 9, 2017, the delegation of the Turkish Justice Academy accompanied by representatives of the National Academy of Public Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine visited the National Museum “Holodomor Victims Memorial”.
The delegation consisted of the president of the Academy, President of the Academy of Justice Yilmaz Akchil, Deputy President of the Academy Rifat Inanch, Deputy President of the Audit Commission of the Council of Judges and Prosecutors Levent Barish Tiufenkchi, President of the Court of Appeal of Erzurum Mustafa Chetin, President of the City Court of Ankara Izmail Ulukul, President of the city court of the city Stanbul Bekir Altun, chief prosecutor of the Court of Appeal of Bursa Sait Hurelek, chief prosecutor of the city of Bursa Uhurkhan Kush, prosecutor of the prosecutor general’s office at the Court of Cassation Hayreddin Akchil, the judge of the Academy of Justice Ahmet and the translator, Elmaz Kirimli.
The museum guests had an excursion in the Hall of Memory and walked around the territory of the Memorial. For many members of the delegation, the history of the genocide of the Ukrainian nation in 1932-1933 was a shocking truth.
Let us remind that due to the politicization of the issue of recognition of genocides of Ukrainians and Armenians, Turkey has still not recognized the Holodomor as a genocide of the Ukrainian nation.
