- Holodomor Epistle - Permanent Conference of Ukrainian Orthodox BishopsAt present, when our native homeland of Ukraine is enduring perhaps its greatest trials since achieving independence, we Ukrainians in the Diaspora and in Ukraine remember the Holodomor of 1932-33, this most sorrowful and tragic event in our Ukrainian history. Together, we prayerfully honour the memory of millions of innocent people who were martyred by hunger in Ukraine.

- Ecumenical Patriarch: Statement on the 80th Anniversary of the Holodomor"It is with all great pride, albeit with heavy heart that we are communicating with all of you today from the historic and martyric Mother Church of Constantinople on the solemn occasion of the eightieth anniversary of the Holodomor of the Ukrainian Nation."
- Permanent Conference of Ukrainian Orthodox Bishops Beyond the Borders of Ukraine: Statement on the Holodomor"Once again we have come to the annual commemoration of the victims of one of the acts of genocide that is possibly the most terrible ever committed against mankind – the artificial and genocidal famine of 1932-33 in Ukraine. Purposefully created and perpetrated, it was masterminded by Josef Stalin himself and managed by those who devoted their lives to him and carried out every command regardless of the consequences, not only for the seven to ten million Ukrainian men, women and children who succumbed to the famine, but also for the countless thousands or even millions of Ukrainians and others who dared to challenge the “plan” of the day throughout the Stalin era."
- Prime Minister Statement on the Holodomor"I would like to pay homage to the tremendous spirit and strength thatit took for Ukraine to survive the Holomodor and emerge as a proud andindependent nation. This strength of character is evident everyday in themore than one million Canadians of Ukrainian descent whose contributionscontinue to enrich our great country."
- Citizenship & Multiculturalism Minister Statement on the Holodomor"Five years ago, Canada recognized the Ukrainian famine of 1932-33 as an act of genocide. Every year, Canadians mark the fourth Saturday in November as Ukrainian Famine and Genocide ("Holodomor") Memorial Day by participating in memorial gatherings that are held across the country, including on Parliament Hill.
