30 November 2022

Germany recognized the Holodomor in Ukraine in 1932-1933 as an act of genocide of the Ukrainian people. The Bundestag adopted the corresponding resolution on Wednesday, November 30. As reported by Ukrinform, the resolution was adopted by a majority of votes, without counting, by a show of hands. 4 fractions voted “for”. The Left and Alternative for Germany abstained from voting.

The resolution of the Bundestag states: “All of Ukraine suffered from famine and repression, not only its grain-producing regions. From today’s point of view, the historical-political classification as genocide is obvious. The German Bundestag shares this classification.”

The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, thanked the members of the Bundestag of the Federal Republic of Germany on Twitter for the historic decision to recognize the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian people.

“Germany recognized the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide. I thank the members of the Bundestag for this historic decision. The truth always wins,” said Zelensky.

The Minister of Culture and Information Policy, Oleksandr Tkachenko, also reacted to the decision of the Bundestag in Telegram.

“Recognizing the Holodomor as genocide is the coming of historical justice and the attestation of the consequences of crimes. Today, this is extremely important in the conditions of a new genocidal war in Europe,” Tkachenko emphasized.
