The document condemning the artificial Holodomor in Ukraine, was adopted by a majority of votes: 507 deputies voted “for”, 12 voted “against”, and 17 abstained.
“The European Parliament recognizes 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 organizations that have not yet done so to follow suit and recognize it as genocide,” says the text of the resolution.
The members of the European Parliament also condemned that at the time when the 90th anniversary of the Holodomor is being remembered, Russia continues its aggressive war against Ukraine.
“Drawing links to Soviet times, the resolution accuses the current Russian regime of violating the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, seeking to liquidate Ukraine as a nation state and destroying the identity and culture of its people,” noted the European Parliament.
Along with this, the resolution condemns the actions of Russia, whose aggression against Ukraine caused the global food crisis.
