Slovakia recognized the Holodomor as a genocide against the Ukrainian people
The Parliament of Slovakia recognized the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian people. It is reported on the website of the country’s parliament. 84 out of 108 deputies voted “for”, 23 deputies – abstained, and 1 – “against”.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked the Parliament of Slovakia for this crucial decision:
“I am grateful to the Parliament of Slovakia for recognizing the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian people. A timely decision, a significant contribution to restoring historical justice and honouring millions of the innocent victims.”
In turn, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba tweeted:
“Slovakia has joined a growing number of countries in recognizing the 1932-1933 Holodomor as genocide against the Ukrainian people. This act of historical justice serves as a stark reminder of our responsibility to ensure that abusers do not act with impunity. Thank you, Slovakia!”
We will remind you that Slovenia, Luxembourg, and the lower house of the British Parliament recognized the Holodomor as genocide only in the last month. Also, on Monday, the discussion of this issue began in the Croatian Parliament.
