There were several famines in Ukraine:
The most brutal was the Holodomor in the period 1932-1933 – an artificially created famine. During this time, more than 7 million Ukrainians died of hunger.
Innocently killed people are honored with a moment of silence, and throughout the country, candles of memory are lit in windows.
