French Parliament recognizes Holodomor as genocide against Ukrainians

On 28 March, the French Parliament recognized the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide against the Ukrainian people, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy reported on Twitter.

The Holodomor was Stalin’s man-made that killed roughly four million Ukrainians.

“The [French] Parliament’s recognition of the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the [Ukrainian] people is important and symbolic. We’re grateful for [France’s] strong contribution to exposing the crimes of totalitarian Russia, past and present,” Zelenskyy wrote on Twitter thanking France.

France becomes the 26th country to recognize the Holodomor as genocide.
