Holodomor Commemoration 2022 Call to Action

We ask each and every Ukrainian and lover of Ukraine, no matter where you are in the world, to reach out to your legislators and ask your government to recognize the Holodomor as genocide committed by the Soviet Union against the Ukrainian Nation. Tell them to deliver long-range weapons, ammunition and air defense systems now. Ukraine has the momentum - now is the time to end Russian genocide against Ukraine forever. Join us in fighting Russian disinformation by spreading the truth about the Holodomor and today’s genocide. Don’t let Russian lies get covered up as they did in 1932-33. We remember the atrocities committed by Russia against us then and now! We are uniting as never before! And with God’s help, support of freedom-loving countries of the world and our heroic Armed Forces of Ukraine we will Win!
