On Holodomor Memorial Day, Litre, together with Ukrainian diplomats, joined a mourning rally near the monument to Taras Shevchenko in Zagreb.

This was reported by the press service of the Embassy of Ukraine in the Republic of Croatia, according to Gazeta.ua.

"Together with the member of the Croatian Sabor, Marko Milanović Litre, we lit a candle in memory of the victims of the Holodomor in Ukraine. Our duty is not only to light a candle on this mourning day but also to light a fire in our hearts in memory of the Ukrainians who starved to death. We are grateful to Marko Milanović Litre that on November 27, 2020, he convicted (for the first time!) from the rostrum of the Croatian parliament the Holodomor in Ukraine in 1932-1933, as a genocide of Ukrainians," the report says.

That said, Litre began his 5-minute speech with the greeting "Glory to Ukraine!".

According to him, the Holodomor is "a civilizational shame that we should pay attention to understand where the policy of socialism and communism is leading us."
