“Governor of the State of Wisconsin Scott Walker signed proclamation. Embassy of Ukraine in the U.S. expresses its gratitude to the U.S. States's authorities for support and restoration of historical justice in the memory of those Ukrainians who lost their lives during that tragedy caused by the Soviet regime,” reads the statement.
