President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko calls the refusal of Russian President to attend events on commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Ukrainian great famine a humiliation for millions of Ukrainian murder victims.

According to the President`s press-office, he said this in an interview with El Pais newspaper (Spain).

Victor Yushchenko claimed he “does not have any big desire to comment” on the statement of his Russian counterpart, who shows “an inadequate attitude to the tragedy of the Ukrainian nation”, which could have been explained “with a historical misunderstanding”.

At the same time, the President of Ukraine stressed: “The President of Russia humiliates millions of people, who are dead as of today, those innocent murder victims, who did not hurt anybody”.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on November 14, D.Medvedev claimed that the Ukraine’s famine of 30ies is used to achieve an immediate political aim, and refused to attend the events on commemoration of the Holodomor 75th anniversary.
