The European Parliament will consider a resolution that would recognize Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian people, on Dec. 15 – according to the agenda of the upcoming Dec. 12-15 plenary session of the body.
“90 years after Holodomor: Recognizing the mass killing through starvation as genocide,” says the corresponding agenda entry
The same day, EMPs will discuss the humanitarian situation in Ukraine and Russian attacks on critical infrastructure and civilian facilities across the country.
On Nov. 30, the German parliament supported a resolution recognizing the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian people.
2022 marks the 90th anniversary of the Soviet push to collectivize agriculture, which included targeted measures to engineer a devastating famine in Ukraine in 1932-1933 – which later became known as Holodomor and claimed between 3.5 and 5 million Ukrainian lives.
