Rector M. Sato noted that the study of history is very important for understanding the present. He also expressed the wish to visit Ukraine at the earliest opportunity. Ambassador of Ukraine I. Kharchenko said : “This year marks the 85th anniversary of the Holodomor, therefore this exhibition is very important for honoring the memory of the dead and understanding the history of our state.”
