We are delighted to confirm that our next event will be a discussion on the Holodomor of 1932-33 in Ukraine. It will be organised in conjunction with the Embassy of Ukraine to the United Kingdom and with support from the All Party Parliamentary Group on Ukraine.
Our distinguished panel will include Anne Applebaum, Pauline Latham OBE MP and Volodymyr Vyatrovych, who together will discuss the significance of the Holodomor and the importance of remembering and commemorating it.
Anne Applebaum will present her new book Red Famine: Stalin’s War on Ukraine. Pauline Latham is the MP for Mid Derbyshire who led a debate in Parliament about the Holodomor in 2013. Volodymyr Vyatrovych is a renowned historian and Director of the Ukrainian Institute for National Memory.

This British Ukrainian Society series of lectures in the spheres of politics and culture is run in partnership with the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Ukraine. It aims to give anyone interested in Ukrainian affairs an opportunity to hear from British and Ukrainian politicians, diplomats, authors, artists and experts from various professions who are in some way involved in noteworthy work relating to Ukraine.
The lectures are held approximately every two months in London at Portcullis House where the offices of British Members of Parliament and their staff are located. Each lecture offers an opportunity for the audience to ask questions, and networking receptions are also planned in the future.
