Educational Diplomacy of Kyiv National University in Action

On June 8 and 9, 2023, with the assistance of the Embassy of Ukraine in the Republic of North Macedonia, the city of Skopje held the events dedicated to the Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine and the Day of Commemoration of Children who died as a result of the armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.

On June 8, 2023, Professor Volodymyr Serhiychuk, Head of the Department of World Ukrainian History at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, delivered a lecture on the Holodomor-genocide of 1932-1933 in Ukraine before the deputies of the Macedonian Sobranie (the Assembly of North Macedonia), government officials, scientists and journalists of the Republic of North Macedonia. The event was part of the preparations for the recognition by the Parliament of the Republic of North Macedonia of the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian nation.

In addition, Professor Volodymyr Serhiychuk gave an open lecture to the audience of the Faculty of Philosophy of the leading Macedonian University – Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje.

A Ukrainian historian spoke about how the Holodomor became the price Ukrainians paid for their desire for freedom. It was the reaction of the totalitarian Stalinist regime to the restoration of Ukrainian statehood and the Ukrainian national movement.

Professor Serhiychuk presented his English-language books to the faculty library.

On June 9, 2023, an event was organized at the Museum of the Macedonian Struggle for Independence (Skopje). Also, as part of the events, the exhibition “Ukraine Remembers, the World Recognizes” dedicated to the Holodomor of 1932-1933 was opened in the Museum.
