Current Russian crimes in Ukraine reminiscent of the past
Call on all countries and organisations to also recognise the Holodomor as genocide
Russian regime manipulates historical memory for the purpose of its own survival
MEPs deplore that 90 years after the Holodomor, Russia is again committing horrific crimes in Ukraine.
In a resolution adopted on Thursday, the European Parliament recognises the famine inflicted by the Soviet regime on Ukraine in 1932-1933 - known as the Holodomor - as genocide. MEPs strongly condemn these acts, which resulted in the deaths of millions of Ukrainians, and call on all countries and organisations that have not yet done so to follow suit and recognise it as genocide.
