Rada calls on Bundestag to recognize Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian people
This is reported by Radio Liberty.
331 MPs voted for the resolution on the appeal of the Ukrainian parliament to the Bundestag at a meeting on December 16.
The Verkhovna Rada called on the German parliament to give "a political assessment of the Holodomor events, which will be an important signal to honor the millions of victims of this crime of the totalitarian regime, a significant contribution to ensuring a peaceful and secure future for future generations."
The memory of Holodomor victims in Ukraine is honored annually on the fourth Saturday of November.
In November 2006, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine recognized the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as a genocide of the Ukrainian people.
