Letter from Senator Charles Schumer to the UCCA

To Ukrainian Congress Committee of America,

I regret that I’m unable to attend this year’s remembrance, the 81st Anniversary of the Holodomor, one of the worst tragedies in Western history, as I will be in Buffalo arranging for the speedy delivery of federal aid to help the city cope and recover from one of the worst snow storms the area has ever seen. Each year I have tried to join you all on this day, and have for many years, because I believe from the bottom of my heart that it is our sacred duty to honor those whose memory calls down to us through the decades for justice – the innocent victims of the Ukrainian genocide. It’s been 81 years since Stalin used the sharp scythe of hunger as a weapon against the innocent and the defenseless. He tried to annihilate the Ukrainian people and the Ukrainian spirit. But he failed. Stalin is gone, Soviet Russia is gone, and the Ukrainian people live on.

Today, Ukrainians observe a new national holiday -- the anniversary of the start of the Revolution of Dignity. In subsequent years and decades, we will gather on November 21st to remember the “Euromaidan” protesters, those seemingly ordinary people who stood out in the cold, united in prayer and in song, astounding the world and exceeding its expectations about Ukraine. This massive, months-long movement in support of reform and modernization led to the end of a criminal regime, and the beginning of a future based on European values, free of corruption and where rule of law and human rights are respected.
