The President of Estonia put flowers and a lantern to the sculpture «Bitter memory of the childhood» on the territory of the Memorial, visited the exposition of the Hall of Memory, lit a candle at the Altar in memory of the Holodomor victims. She also honored the memory of the Ukrainians, who were killed by famine, by ringing the Bell of Memory.

Kersti Kaljulaid is in Ukraine with an official visit, in which she will meet with the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andriy Parubiy.

We recall that Estonia became the first country to recognize the Holodomor as a genocide at the state level. On October 20, 1993, the Estonian Parliament adopted the relevant statement.
