Ukraine House in Denmark

Poetry evening in memory of Victoria Amelina


Ukraine House in Denmark invites you to a poetry reading in memory of Ukrainian writer Victoria Amelina. The event will take place on Aug. 9, 2023, at Gammel Dok, Strandgade 27B, Copenhagen. 17:00

Victoria Amelina passed away on July 1, 2023, after receiving lethal injuries as a result of a russian missile strike which hit a restaurant in Kramatorsk on June 27, 2023. 

Join us as we gather to commemorate the life and literary legacy of Victoria Amelina, a gifted writer whose words touched the hearts and minds of many. During the evening,  Victoria's poetry will be recited in both Ukrainian and English. Guests can join the reading and recite their favorite pieces as well.  

Whether previously acquainted with Victoria’s work or discovering her artistry for the first time, this poetry evening will be a platform to honor a life brutally taken away too soon and a chance to reflect on the losses suffered by Ukrainian culture at the hands of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine. 


Free entrance for Ukrainian displaced persons, children 6-16 and media professionals.

Recognizing the Holodomor as genocide is a step to honor the memory of the victims – Dr. Horodyskyy1.12.2023 14:51:18 CET | Pressemeddelelse

Dr. Ivan Horodyskyy, Vice-President of the Ukrainian Bar Association, appealed to the Danish parliament with a сordial request to make every effort to establish justice for the victims of the Holodomor by recognizing it as genocide. The expert spoke during the commemorative event “Holodomor – 90: impact on Ukraine and the future of justice” held at Ukraine House in Denmark on Nov. 25.

5 Stalks of Wheat: Letter to the Danish Parliament on Recognition of the Holodomor as Genocide24.11.2023 12:23:53 CET | Pressemeddelelse

As we approach the 90th anniversary of the Holodomor and the December hearings in the Danish Parliament regarding the recognition of the Holodomor as genocide, yesterday, our public initiative group met with the Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Affairs to advocate for acknowledgement and justice. We've initiated a symbolic gesture—Danish parliamentarians are now in possession of the artistically displayed bouquets of the five stalks of wheat, reminding them of the sinister Soviet Decree of 5 Stalks of Wheat. This law was one in a series of resolutions that enabled the deliberate killing by starvation of a minimum 4 million of Ukrainians in 1932-1933. We are joined by the leaders of Ukrainian organizations within the Association of Ukrainians in Denmark and the Ukrainian faith-based organizations in an appeal to the Danish Folketing to join the 36 nations and organizations and recognize Holodomor as the genocide of Ukrainian people.

10th anniversary of the Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity23.11.2023 12:13:31 CET | Pressemeddelelse

On Nov. 21, 2023, Ukraine commemorated the 10th anniversary of the Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity, a pivotal moment in history which was followed by a decade of transformation since hundreds thousands of Ukrainians gathered in late November 2013 to protest against a government move away from an EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. The revolution changed the course of Ukrainian history, its conclusion marked by a loss of 100 lives, a change in government, and the occupation of Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts. In honour of the occasion, we’d like to share key takeaways from our panel discussion “Ukraine and the world transformed: 10 years since the Revolution of Dignity” that took place on Nov. 20 at Ukraine House in Denmark.
