Germany declares ukraine's holodomor famine a genocide | dw news

DW News published this video item, entitled “Germany declares Ukraine’s Holodomor famine a genocide | DW News” – below is their description.

German lawmakers on Wednesday passed a resolution declaring the starvation of millions of Ukrainians under Soviet leader Josef Stalin a genocide.

The resolution said Holodomor, as it is known in Ukraine, constitutes a “crime against humanity.”

The three parties in Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s governing coalition, the Social Democrats, Greens and the Free Democrats as well as the main opposition Christian Democrats (CDU) and allied conservative Christian Social Union (CSU) all voted in favor of the resolution in the Bundestag.

In 2006, the Ukrainian parliament classified Holodomor as a genocide against the country’s people.

In November 1932, Soviet leader Stalin dispatched police to seize all grain and livestock from newly collectivized Ukrainian farms, including the seed needed to plant the next crop, and millions died.
