Polish Senate unanimously adopts a resolution on the occasion of the Holodomor anniversary
On Wednesday, November 21, the Polish Senate unanimously adopted a resolution to mark the 85th anniversary of the Holodomor in Ukraine. This was announced by Ambassador of Ukraine to Poland Andriy Deshchytsia on his Twitter, Yevropeyska Pravda reports.
78 senators gave their votes in favor, nobody was against and nobody abstained.
"Symbolically, this happened on the Day of Dignity and Freedom. Thank you for the memory, support and solidarity!” the diplomat commented the decision.
In a statement issued by the ambassador, the Polish senators remind that in 2006 the Polish Senate in a special decree recognized the Ukrainian assessment of these events as a crime of genocide.
“We believe that the spread of knowledge about this great tragedy in Europe will contribute to a better understanding of the consequences of communist ideology and totalitarianism,” the document says.
Polish senators expressed solidarity with the Ukrainian people to preserve the memory of the Holodomor and the desire to increase awareness about this tragedy.
“In connection with the commemoration of the Holodomor in Ukraine, the Senate of Poland reminds us of the suffering of millions of victims of this drama,” the resolution states.
