“Millions of victims of the brutal act of genocide were remembered in a place that dates back over a thousand years and witnessed numerous memorable events in world history.
Representatives of the Ukrainian faith community in the United Kingdom held an ecumenical memorial service to honor the memory of the innocent victims of this crime of the communist regime against the Ukrainian people,” the embassy wrote on Facebook.
During the event, the Westminster Abbey choir performed the Ukrainian prayer “Prayer for Ukraine”, accompanied by a candle lighting in memory of the Holodomor victims.
