The U.S. State of Kansas has recognized the Holodomor of 1932-1933, a man-made famine in Soviet Ukraine, as genocide against the Ukrainian people.
"Another U.S. state has recognized the Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine as genocide against the Ukrainian people. Jeff Collyer, Governor of the State of Kansas signed the proclamation to consider 2018 as Ukrainian Genocide Remembrance Year," the Embassy of Ukraine in the United States wrote on Facebook on May 9.
It is noted that thanks to joint efforts of Ukrainian diplomats in the U.S. and the Ukrainian diaspora, Kansas became the 10th state that recognized the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as a crime of genocide against the Ukrainian nation.
As UNIAN reported, nine U.S. states earlier recognized the Holodomor as genocide: Washington, Wisconsin, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Pennsylvania.
