It was the part of the Second Inter-Parliamentary Conference “Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova: strengthening interparliamentary component of regional and security cooperation and development of relations with the EU and NATO”

Participants of the Inter-Parliamentary Conference honored the memory of the victims of Holodomor, which is the Soviet genocide against the Ukrainian nation in 1932-1933.

We remind that Georgian parliament recognized the Holodomor as genocide in the document dated 20 December 2005: “The Parliament of Georgia … is aware that the totalitarian Bolshevik regime during this period [1932-1933] was made purposeful genocide against the Ukrainians, and expressed sorrow and condolences for the death victims of genocide committed in Ukraine in 1932-1933 “.

The Republic of Moldova has not recognized Holodomor yet.
