"Today the State of Connecticut has recognized the Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine as genocide against the Ukrainian people. The relevant statement was signed by Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy," the Embassy of Ukraine in the USA wrote on Facebook.

"Ukraine is grateful to the U.S. for solidarity in recognizing the Holodomor in Ukraine in 1932-1933 as an act of genocide against the Ukrainian people caused by the Soviet regime," reads the report.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the United States Senate on October 4 unanimously passed a bipartisan resolution that became the first ever legal act of the United States Congress, where the Holodomor of 1932-1933 was designated as genocide against the Ukrainian people.

The resolution also condemns "the systematic violations of human rights, including the freedom of self-determination and freedom of speech, of the Ukrainian people by the Soviet government."
