DE LA COMMUNAUTE
UKRAINIENNE DE FRANCE
Monsieur Emmanuel Macron
President of the French Republic
Paris, December 12, 2018
It is with utmost horror that we learned of the speech given by Vladimir Putin, President of the
Russian Federation, at the Investment Forum of VTB Capital, Russia’s Appeal in Moscow on
Wednesday, November 28. During his speech, President Putin appeared frustrated and hateful
as a result of international sanctions against Russia, and partly based on Ukraine's resistance to
the hybrid war that he is waging. Speaking of the Ukrainian people, he stated that « if today
they ask for newborns for breakfast, they will surely be served newborns because, what to do,
they want to eat... »
This is a most vile and disgusting allusion, quoted in reference to the Holodomor, the 19321933 genocide of the Ukrainian people, perpetrated by the same Russia at the time of the
Soviet Union in order to break the Ukrainian people’s resistance to its domination. This
genocide is recognized today as a crime against humanity by numerous countries, churches and
international institutions, including the United Nations. Indeed, deprived artificially of food,
this horrific act drove some individuals to madness, and induced the occurrence of cannibalism,
especially sacrificing children.
We believe, Mr President, that it is appropriate for our country to draw the attention of the
international community to the inadmissibility of such public statements by the leader of a
country, who wishes represent a world power. Let us imagine for a moment a German leader
make racist remarks against the Israeli nation by engaging in improper comments on the subject
of the Holocaust. Could we remain indifferent to this?
We are aware of your position, towards the current government of the Russian Federation and
wish to express our strong disapproval of the indignity of the words proferred by its President.
We are convinced that you will share this sentiment, and will be able to report this on the
international stage on behalf of France. This would help us to counterbalance the opprobrium of
critics on this tragic fact of our history, including the visit to Ukraine of Edouard Herriot during
the Holodomor, when he lent himself to two stagings of village feasts, within a territory ravaged
by artificial famine. Moreover, the actors and extras mobilized for this action, having become
troublesome witnesses, were all shot afterwards.
Please accept, Mr President, our deepest respect.
President of the CRCUF
