The President and his wife laid compositions of ears and arrowwood mixed with mourning colors to the Memorial to Holodomor victims on Mykhailivska Square in Kyiv. They honored memory of everyone who died in one of the most dreadful period in the history of the Ukrainian people with a moment of silence and a low bow.
Petro Poroshenko and Maryna Poroshenko also placed icon lamps in front of the Memorial.
