The resolution says that "while estimates vary, it is thought that between 3.5 and 10 million Ukrainians perished in the Holodomor, a term meaning 'murder by starvation;' moreover, those who spoke out about the true nature of the famine were prosecuted or executed."

The Holodomor, as an act of genocide, has been recognized by the United States Senate and the U.S. Commission on the Ukrainian Famine, as well as by legislative bodies in Australia, Canada, Mexico, Poland, and numerous other nations.

The House of Representatives of the 87th Texas Legislature hereby recognized November 2021 as Ukrainian Genocide Remembrance Month and urged the state's residents to reflect on the Holodomor and honor the memory of those who perished.
