All humanity and every country should remember about the genocide and the mass tragedies that followed it in order to prevent their reoccurrence in the future,” Belitsky said..
According to the political scientist, by passing a bill recognizing the Armenian Genocide, Ukraine would express respect for the memory of the victims and would make its contribution to restoring of historic justice.
