Luxembourg recognizes Holodomor as genocide of Ukrainians

Luxembourg has recognized the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian people, per the decision of the Chamber of Deputies of the country.

“The Holodomor is a crime of genocide against Ukrainians, as the totalitarian Soviet regime planned this artificial famine to kill the people by deliberately creating living conditions that lead to the inexorable death of people,” the document reads.

The President of Ukraine expressed gratitude to Luxembourg for the decision. “The world will never put up with the crimes of Russia’s Kremlin regime – neither past nor present!” Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized.

At the same time, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called the decision historical. “This step honors millions of victims and restores historic justice. The international acknowledgment of the Holodomor genocide continues to rise,” the minister said. 

In May of this year, the recognition of the mass famine in Ukraine as genocide of the Ukrainian people was unanimously supported by the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Earlier, the decision was also taken by Slovenia.
