European Parliament recognises Holodomor as genocide of Ukrainian people

The European Parliament voted to recognise the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as a genocide of the Ukrainian people, Head of the Ukrainian President's Office Andriy Yermak said on Telegram.

"The European Parliament recognises the Holodomor, the artificial famine of 1932-1933 in Ukraine caused by a deliberate policy of the Soviet regime, as a genocide against the Ukrainian people; strongly condemns these genocidal acts of the totalitarian Soviet regime, which resulted in the death of millions of Ukrainians and significantly harmed the foundations of Ukrainian society," the resolution of the European Parliament reads.

The resolution condemning the artificial famine in Ukraine was adopted by a majority of votes: 507 deputies voted in favour, 12 - against, and 17 - abstained.

"Historical justice has triumphed. The genocide perpetrator will forever be stigmatised for those events, as well as for today's crimes. The terrorist nation - future generations of Russians will be perceived through the prism of these crimes. Their children and grandchildren will be in perennial disgrace in the civilised world. And they will experience this shame everywhere," Yermak noted.
