On Thursday, December 15, the European Parliament adopted a resolution recognizing Holodomor inflicted by the Soviet regime on Ukraine in 1932–1933 as genocide.

Quote"MEPs strongly condemn these acts, which resulted in the deaths of millions of Ukrainians, and call on all countries and organisations that have not yet done so to follow suit and recognise it as genocide," the resolution says.

Whitewashing and glorification of the totalitarian Soviet regime and the revival of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin’s cult has led to Russia being today a state sponsor of terrorism.

MEPs also condemned the horrific Russian crimes being carried out once again against the Ukrainian people, such as the targeted destruction of Ukraine’s civilian energy infrastructure during winter.

They accused the current Russian regime of violating the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, seeking to liquidate Ukraine as a nation state and destroying the identity and culture of its people.

The war has caused a global food crisis, with Russia destroying and looting Ukraine’s grain stores and continuing to make it difficult to ensure Ukrainian grain exports to the most deprived countries in the world.

In addition, MEPs urged countries of the world to raise awareness about the Holodomor events and other crimes committed by the Soviet regime.

While condemning the current Russian regime for manipulating historical memory for the purpose of its own survival, the European Parliament called on the Russian Federation, as the primary successor of the Soviet Union, to apologize for those crimes.

Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia recognized Russian war crimes in Ukraine as genocide. The Sejm of the Republic of Poland recognized Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism.

Earlier, the European Parliament declared Russia a terrorist state.
