Croatian parliament initiated the declaration for recognition of the Holodomor as an act of genocide
The Croatian parliament initiated the declaration on the Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian nation.
“In the light of centuries-old ties and friendship between Ukrainians and Croats, the Croatian Sovereignist Fraction, in accordance with the parliamentary procedure, at the initiative of the Ukrainian national minority, requested the adoption of a Declaration condemning the Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian nation,” he wrote.
Litre stressed that by adopting such a declaration, Croats will show solidarity with Ukraine and officially condemn the crime against the humanity of the communist totalitarian regime.
“Let’s not fail to vote for this declaration, because it is one of the warnings from history for future generations—that the rights and freedoms of people can not be neglected for some supposedly high goals,” the deputy said.
- On November 27, 2020, Croatian politician Marko Milanovic Litre for the first time raised the issue of recognizing the Holodomor as an act of genocide at a meeting of the Croatian parliament, and on November 28, Holodomor Remembrance Day, joined Ukrainian mourners in a mourning rally near the Tarakus monument in Zagreb.
- On December 10, 2020, Ukrainians in Croatia asked the country’s parliament to re-include the condemnation and recognition of the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian nation in the agenda, Ukrinform reported, referring to the Facebook page of the chairman of the Ukrainian society UKPD “Kobzar” (Zagreb) Slavko Burda, Deputy Chairman of the Ukrainian Community of the Republic of Croatia, who delivered a speech on the Holodomor in Ukraine on the “Multicultur” radio program of the First Program of Radio Zagreb on December 5.
- The Holodomor Museum team soon sent a set of English-language books to Croatia for the personal library of Marko Milanović Litre and the National and University Library of Zagreb (NACIONALNA I SVEUČILIŠNA KNJIŽNICA U ZAGREBU).
