Ukraine's parliament has adopted a resolution "On the appeal of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to the democratic countries of the world regarding the recognition of the Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine as a crime of genocide against the Ukrainian people," according to an UNIAN correspondent.
In its appeal, the Verkhovna Rada asks all world nations to recognize the Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine as genocide of the Ukrainian people. It is recalled that the Holodomor took away millions of human lives.
The document also notes that today Ukraine has once again become a "victim of aggression of Stalin's followers from the Kremlin."
However, the Verkhovna Rada has expressed its deep gratitude to all those who broke through the iron curtain of propaganda and lies built by the communist totalitarian regime, all those who kept the memory of the tragedy, which the Ukrainian people had experienced, and all those who restored the truth about the Holodomor.
