    Ukrainians do not have the right to forget or not to notice the lessons of history - both ancient and the history of recent years. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during the Government sitting. One of the topics of the meeting was the presentation of the built historic monuments and projects of new memorials, including the memorial to the Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred.  Minister of Culture of Ukraine Yevhen Nishchuk noted that such memorials encompass the lessons of history and stressed that nobody has a future without knowing the past

    In turn, the Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman noted that all international visits usually envisage visiting historical sites. "This means respect for Ukrainians and for our history. Our major loss is the loss of people who gave up their lives for independence and idea. And this imposes a huge responsibility on the living. And these are not lofty words, these are the tragic milestones of our history," the Head of government stressed.

    The Prime Minister placed a special emphasis on the fact that such tragic events as Holodomor and the Holocaust  that took place in our country cannot be forgotten.

    "Knowledge and awareness of history, tragedies change understanding  of the past events. It is important to remember. Each event should be immortalized. I urge everyone to perceive this as a personal and nationwide responsibility" Volodymyr Groysman underscored.
