Today in Lviv the memory of those killed in World War II was honored

Today in Lviv, at the site of the Stalag-328 concentration camp for prisoners of war, the memory of those who died in World War II was honored.

The head of the Lviv region, Maksym Kozytskyi, said this.

“This year, for the first time, Ukraine marks May 8 as the Day of Remembrance and Victory over Nazism in World War II. Our country has joined the European tradition of celebrating this date.

May 8 is a reminder that the Second World War was the result of agreements between two totalitarian regimes: the Nazi regime in Germany and the Communist regime in the USSR. It is also a reminder of the longstanding tacit refusal of the world’s most powerful states to resist the aggressors. The result was the genocide of the Ukrainian, Jewish, and Crimean Tatar peoples. Millions of innocent victims.

To remember means to value a just peace and to adhere to it by the entire international community. To remember the cost of learning this lesson, and to prevent new multimillion-dollar casualties.

We, Ukrainians, refuse to be victims. We are fighting – for ourselves, for our future, for the future of our children and grandchildren in a free, great and independent state. For all those who failed to defend themselves during the Second World War. And we really want big and strong states not to give tacit consent to the genocide of our people in the twenty-first century. Otherwise, the Third World War is inevitable,” emphasized the head of the Lviv Regional Military Administration.

Eternal honor and memory to those who laid down their lives in the fight against Nazism. Eternal rest to those who fell victim to this terror.

Glory to all those who are fighting for a just peace for Ukraine today!
