Romania recognizes Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine as genocide
Lawmakers of both chambers of the Parliament of Romania voted at a joint meeting on November 23, 2022, in favor of a declaration condemning the man-made famine (Holodomor) in Ukraine in 1932-1933.
“The Holodomor was a unique massacre on the territory of the Soviet Union in terms of the scale, pace and nature of the crimes committed by the leaders and institutions of the Soviet Union. In the early 1930s, the courage and determination of Ukrainians to resist collectivization caused the unstoppable hatred of the totalitarian system,” said member of Romanian Parliament Nicolae-Miroslav Petrețchi.
Man-made famine — the Holodomor — was arranged by the Soviet authorities in 1932-1933. More than 17 countries of the world have already recognized the Holodomor as genocide.
