SLOVAK PARLIAMENT RECOGNIZES HOLODOMOR OF 1932-1933 IN FORMER USSR, INCLUDING IN UKRAINE, AS "EXTERMINATION ACT"

KYIV, December 13 /UKRINFORM/. Deputies of the Slovakian parliament adopted a declaration recognizing the Holodomor in the former Soviet Union, including in Ukraine, in 1932-1933, as the act of extermination.

The initial text of the declaration, which was submitted to the parliament by a Christian-Democratic group of deputies, said that in 1932-1933 the Ukrainian people suffered genocide.

The Slovak government offered to change and extend the declaration motivating it with the fact that the famine also touched Kazakhstan, Russia and Northern Caucasus.

The 1932-1933 Holodomor in Ukraine, which was artificially organized by the Communist regime, killed 7 to 10 million of Ukrainians.
