It's time for U.S. to officially recognize Holodomor as genocide of Ukrainian people – Chaly
Kyiv intends to seek from the U.S. the recognition of the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian people, Ukrainian ambassador to Washington Valeriy Chaly has said.
"Traditionally, at the end of November, thousands of indifferent people gather in New York in St. Patrick's Cathedral to honor the memory of the innocent victims of the Holodomor (Famine) artificially created by the Stalin regime in 1932-1933. Now we know that it was Ukrainians who rose up against this crime in defense of their own families, and were deliberately destroyed. Today, in my speech with the surviving witnesses of those tragic events, I stressed: it's time to officially recognize the Holodomor against the Ukrainian people as genocide, "the Ukrainian ambassador to U.S. Valeriy Chaly wrote on his Facebook page.
He recalled that the previous attempt was unsuccessful. "But we will again go to the U.S. Congress to elicit truth and justice and the adoption of the relevant resolution next year," the ambassador said.
