Tamara Denysenko, the American of Ukrainian descent, the representative of Ukrainian non-governmental organizations of Irondequoit and initiator of the establishment of friendly relations between Poltava and Irondequoit, took part in planting of a tree, Poltava365 reports.
"In 1993, we planted a fir tree in memory of the Holodomor victims in Irondequoit. This year, to my great regret, the tree dried up, and we decided to plant a tree in Poltava for the friendship between our cities to flourish and grow and the relations between America and Ukraine to develop," she said.
A mountain ash was chosen to be a friendship tree of the twin cities.
The Ukrainian community in Irondequoit is one of the oldest in the United States and has already celebrated the 100th anniversary of its establishment.
