President of the Storting Masud Gharahkhani and Norway’s Minister of Foreign Affairs in Kiev
In Ukraine, 8th May is a day of commemoration for those who died during World War Two. In Kyiv there is now a memorial wall for the victims of the war between Russia and Ukraine. It was here that the President of the Storting laid a wreath. “It was a powerful experience for me to lay a wreath at the memorial wall. It is vital we don’t forget that Ukraine has been at war ever since 2014. The civil suffering has been enormous. It was extremely important for me to express my deep sympathies with the Ukrainian people,” said Mr Gharahkhani.
