55 member states of the UN and the delegation of the European Union signed the Declaration initiated by Ukraine at the UN on the 90th anniversary of the Holodomor of 1932-1933, Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba said.

In November 2006, the Verkhovna Rada recognised the Holodomor as a genocide of the Ukrainian people, 92% of Ukrainian citizens support this.

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine called on the parliaments of the countries of the world to recognise the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as a genocide of the Ukrainian people on 22 November 2023.

Currently, in addition to the EU countries, the declaration has been signed by Azerbaijan, Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Guatemala, Chile, Japan, South Korea, Great Britain, the USA, Uruguay, Costa Rica, the Marshall Islands and Palau.

“I am grateful to every state that took this principled position… The horrors of the Holodomor should serve as a clear reminder to current and future generations of the need to prevent such atrocities and attempts to use food as a weapon, which are one of the key components of Russian aggression against Ukraine,” Kuleba wrote in on your Twitter.
