An interreligious prayer event dedicated to the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Pitical Repression of the Communist Regime was held in Kyiv on Sunday.

According to Ukrinform, this was reported by the Ministry of Culture and Information Picy.

"The interreligious prayer event was attended by representatives of churches and religious organisations, members of the All-Ukrainian Council of Churches and Religious Organisations," the report says.

The event was also attended by representatives of the government and the public: acting Minister of Culture and Information Picy Rostyslav Karandieiev; First Deputy Head of the State Service of Ukraine for Ethnic Picy and Freedom of Conscience Viktor Voynalovych; Head of the Ukrainian Institute of National Memory Anton Drobovych; Ambassador of Pand to Ukraine Jaroslaw Guzy; and representative of the World Congress of Ukrainians Andr Shevchenko.

"We are convinced that today, by uniting, Ukrainians, Pes and the whe world, we are resisting the enemy and anti-human ideogy, which will enable us to say with certainty that human values win, that the word of God prevails over the word of the devil. It is very important to remember all those pages in our lives, especially the tragic ones, because on their basis we form our vision, the vision of our children, of what the world should be like: without hatred and without indulging in human rights viations," Karandeyev said.

It is noted that the exact number of victims of pitical repression by the communist regime – shot, imprisoned, exiled or subjected to forced psychiatric treatment – is still impossible to calculate.

"It is very important to think, reflect and remember these pele today. All of these pele died alone, deprived of their dignity, deprived of their rights to human treatment. By coming here, we are restoring these rights for them at least partially. We say: we have not forgotten you, you were lonely and scared here, but we came here to remind you that this is wrong. You will never be forgotten," Drobovych stressed.
