The parliament of the Valencia Community of Spain recognized the man-made famine or “Holodomor” in Ukraine from 1932-1933 that killed millions of Ukrainians as a genocide.

Valencian MPs approved a resolution “On raising the awareness of and condemning the great crimes of the twentieth century, such as the Holodomor of 1932-1933” on Wednesday (Dec. 4), Ukrinform reported.

The document calls on executive authorities to promote “the knowledge and condemnation of the Holodomor — along with the great crimes of the twentieth century, dictatorships, forms of repression, and destruction of human lives so that the memory of these events could serve as a reminder for present and future generations of Valencians.”

Ukrainian Consul General Oksana Dramaretska and representatives of the Ukrainian community attended.
