On March 20, 2018, parliamentary debates on the Holodomor Victims Remembrance Day took place in Edinburgh, the BBC reported.

The initiator of the debate was a group of Ukrainian-friendly MPs in the Parliament of Scotland. During the discussion, the representative of the Scottish Conservative Party, Peter Chapman, said that the Holodomor is an act of genocide and that this must be said to present and future generations.

“The Holodomor Memorial Day plays an important role in spreading the truth about the Holodomor, which has long been silenced,” the politician said.

In addition to the parliamentarians, the debate was attended by representatives of the Scottish Government, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the United Kingdom – Natalia Galibarenko, Consul of Ukraine in Edinburgh – Andriy Kusliy and representatives of the Ukrainian diaspora.
