Zelenskyy: Holodomor was genocide
For Ukraine, the Holodomor of 1932-1933 is genocide, not a social or economic tragedy, as some try to present it. This was stated by Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in an interview with the Times of Israel, according to Gazeta.ua. “Many people were eliminated. They were seized, their property – their houses, land, cattle, everything was taken from them. And if they didn’t surrender their assets, they were killed. They were shot. Millions of people died. Many countries have recognized that the Holodomor is a genocide. And I know that Israel understands this and understands that Ukraine recognized the Holocaust as genocide. For Ukraine, this is not a social or economic tragedy. This is genocide. Millions of Ukrainians were eliminated,” the Ukrainian leader said.
