Yushchenko presents list of Slovaks who died in post-WWII Ukraine

Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko presented his Slovak counterpart, Ivan Gašparovič, with a list of the names of 107 Slovaks who died in Ukraine in conflicts between 1944 and 1954, during an official visit to Bratislava on October 11.

Yushchenko said their deaths were caused by the communist regime and its intelligence services.

Gašparovič praised the excellent level of Slovak-Ukrainian relations, and outlined the areas in which they could improve. Yushchenko expressed his conviction that the Slovak Parliament would adopt a declaration declaring the famine in Ukraine in 1932-1933 as an act of genocide aimed against the Ukrainian nation.

Yushchenko also said Ukrainians think it is important that both they and Slovaks living near the common border can travel back and forth under a more relaxed cross-border trade system.
