Romania, Moldova, Ireland recognize Stalin’s Holodomor famine as genocide of Ukrainians.

The parliaments of Romania, Moldova, and Ireland have recognized Holodomor, Stalin’s man-made famine of 1932-1933 that killed roughly four million Ukrainians, as genocide.

On 22 November, the Seanad Eireann of Ireland recognized the Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian people. “We show our solidarity with Ukraine in commemorating this man-made famine which was inflicted on the Ukrainian people by the deliberate policies of the totalitarian Stalinist regime which resulted in millions of innocent lives being lost,” the declaration said, according to Ukraine’s embassy to Ireland.

On 23 November, lawmakers of both chambers of the Romanian parliament voted for a common declaration condemning the deliberate Holodomor famine with 248 votes in favor (one deputy abstained). It recognizes the Holodomor as a “genocidal, systematic actions, direct, cynical, criminal actions of the Soviet Union and its leaders to physically destroy the Ukrainian nation,” Agerpres reports.

The following day, Moldova’s parliament adopted a declaration recognizing Holodomor as a genocide of the Ukrainian nation with 54 votes in favor and the opposition being absent in the voting hall.

“The Great Famine (Holodomor) in Ukraine was a consequence of planned measures with the deliberate intent to physically exterminate opponents of the communist regime and became the key instrument of the policy of mass collectivization and enslavement of those times. As a result, some 22.4 million people were forcibly isolated in a zone of mass starvation,” reads the text of the declaration, NewsMaker reports.

Moldova, Romania, and Ireland join 17 other countries that have recognized the Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian nation.
