French Senate recognizes Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of Ukrainian people
French Senate — the Upper House of the French Parliament — recognized the 1932-1933 Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian people. Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba expressed gratitude to French lawmakers for adopting such a decision. “I am grateful to French senators for this historic vote which restores justice and honors the memory of millions of victims. Such crimes should never repeat and never be forgotten,” he wrote on Twitter. Man-made famine — the Holodomor — was arranged by the Soviet authorities in 1932-1933. More than 17 countries have already recognized the Holodomor as genocide.
