“It’s hard to stand in this place. It is right here that thousands of bullets knocked down people from their feet, killing them.

It is difficult to breathe in this place. Thousands of people took their last breath here.

It’s hard to talk in this place. For thousands of years it will be occupied by silence.

The Nazis shot more than 100 thousand people in this place.

Babyn Yar ravine. The place that the Lord has forsaken forever, and the devil is avoiding it,” said President Volodymyr Zelensky at the event in memory of the victims of the Babyn Yar massacre, during which almost the entire Jewish population of Kyiv was exterminated 80 years ago.
