The Ukrainian diaspora in Poland is outraged by the name of the new burger “Goudomor”, which is promoting the fast food chain Burger King in Poland. It is reported by RIA Novosti.

The publication notes that a fast food chain in Poland recently launched an advertising campaign to promote its new burger in the country. It is called “Goudomor” (Gaudomor) – from the name of the type of cheese “Gouda”. According to the advertisement, the Gaudomor burger contains “a large roll, double beef, three pieces of Gouda cheese, mustard, and fried onions”.

At the same time, the Ukrainians thought that the name of the new dish “Gaudomor” evokes associations with “Holodomor”.

According to the head of the Union of Ukrainians in Poland, Myroslav Skurk, the name of the burger is “disgusting.”

“In my opinion, the proposed name is more than unfortunate. It’s disgusting. It is unambiguously connected with the Holodomor, which almost 50 countries of the world have recognized as genocide, ”Skurka said.
He stressed that for those who are not familiar with history, this name will not say anything. For the rest, the name of the dish will remind you of “one of the greatest crimes in history.”

Formerly the Moscow Department of the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) led business after the emergence of new advertising slogans of the American company Burger King.
