“In November I visited the Holodomor memorial in Kyiv. It was a heartbreaking reminder of a terrible crime. Today, Althingi [the Parliament of Iceland – ed.] recognised the man-made famine of the winter of 1932–1933 as genocide perpetrated by the totalitarian government in Moscow against the people of Ukraine,” tweeted the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Iceland.
The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked the Foreign Minister of Iceland for such a decision.
“Grateful to Iceland for recognizing the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian people, for honoring the memory of millions of Ukrainians killed by the Moscow regime. It is a clear signal that such crimes do not go unpunished and do not have a statute of limitations,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted on Twitter.
On November 28, 2006, the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Parliament) adopted the law “On the Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine”, which recognized the Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian people.
