The Croatian Parliament has recognized the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian people.
This was announced by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba.
The Foreign Minister expressed gratitude to the Croatian MPs for the decision.
"I am grateful to the Croatian Parliament for honoring the memory of millions of victims with this historic vote. Global recognition of the Holodomor genocide continues to grow rapidly," he said.
The Holodomor was an artificially created famine of 1932-1933 by the Stalinist repressive regime during the heyday of collectivization, i.e. the forced confiscation of private property and the organization of collective farms. As a result of those events, an estimated four to six million Ukrainians, mostly in rural areas, died from lack of food.
