Moldova Recognised Holodomor as Genocide of Ukrainians

The state parliament recognised the artificial famine created by the Soviet government against Ukraine in 1932 as genocide

On November 24, the parliament of the Republic of Moldova unanimously adopted a declaration recognizing the Holodomor as a genocide of the Ukrainian people. The artificial famine that the Soviet government created on the territory of Ukraine in 1932-33 claimed the lives of more than 4.000.000-10.000.000 Ukrainians. The word "holodomor" in Ukrainian literally consists of 2 words — "hunger" and "pestilence"; that is the process of starving a person.

It is noteworthy that blocking the export of Ukrainian grain is also a Russian attempt at famine, only this time against the whole world.

"The parliament of the Republic of Moldova, in the spirit of solidarity with the Ukrainian people and in the name of justice, declares that the Bolshevik totalitarian regime of the former USSR, as a result of the application of the Holodomor policy, is responsible for an act of deliberate genocide against the Ukrainian people", declaration of the Moldovan parliament.

The parliamentarians appealed to the parliaments of the whole world for solidarity with Ukraine and the recognition of the Holodomor as genocide.

"The memory of the Holodomor and commitment to universal values ​​oblige us to solidarity with the Ukrainian people in order to stop the policy of genocide of the Ukrainian people in the 21st century and save peace and freedom on the European continent."

Today, 18 states have officially recognized the Holodomor as the genocide of Ukrainians: Ukraine, Ireland, the USA, Canada, Australia, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Paraguay, Portugal, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Hungary, Georgia, the Vatican. Russia also knows that the Holodomor is genocide, so it destroys evidence of this crime in the occupied territories.
