Iceland Recognizes Holodomor As Genocide Against Ukrainian People

(MENAFN- UkrinForm) Iceland has recognized the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide against the Ukrainian people.

The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on twitter , referring to Icelandic Foreign Affairs Minister Þórdís Kolbrún R. Gylfadóttir, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Grateful to Iceland for recognizing the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian people, for honoring the memory of millions of Ukrainians killed by the Moscow regime. It is a clear signal that such crimes do not go unpunished and do not have a statute of limitations,” Zelensky wrote.
