"Thank you to Wyoming governor Mark Gordon for his solidarity with Ukraine," Oksana Markarova wrote.

She recalled that traditionally, on the last Saturday of November, Ukrainians around the world light candles in memory of the Holodomor victims. This year it is 25 November.

Background: Washington, Maryland and Arizona on 2 November recognised that the Holodomor of 1932-1933 was a genocide of the Ukrainian people.

Background information on the Holodomor: In November 1932, Joseph Stalin ordered the seizure of all grain and livestock from newly collectivised Ukrainian farms, including the seeds. Millions of Ukrainians starved to death in the following months.
