The UK Recognised Holodomor as Genocide

On 25 May, the House of Commons voted to confer official status on Holodomor 1932-1933

The document was adopted unanimously. British politicians noted that this step is correct and necessary. He expresses support for Ukraine and condemnation of the use of hunger as a struggle against freedom, personal opinion, and confrontation.

Conservative party deputy Pauline Letham introduced the resolution. She stated that the fact of the artificial creation of famine on Ukraine's territory by the Kremlin's political decisions, which previously made all decisions regarding the countries of the Soviet Union, has been historically proven. Recall that the famine in Ukraine was associated with the forced selection of crops from Ukrainian peasants.

"Britain, at least the British Parliament, will not ignore war crimes and crimes against humanity," added Lethham.

The British politician also noted that Russia today continues the genocide of the Ukrainian people. She pointed out that the Kremlin is again harvesting crops from Ukrainian lands. Recall that the modern Russian Federation has gone even further than Stalin: the aggressor not only exports Ukrainian grain from the occupied territories but also blocks grain supplies to other countries of the world.
