On November 30, the German Bundestag voted for a resolution recognizing the Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian people. The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba, called it a step that restores historical justice.
Kuleba wrote about this on her Facebook page.
"Germany's recognition of the Holodomor as a genocide of the Ukrainian people is not just a historical decision. This is an event that we have been told for years: this will never happen. Just because it won't. But the principle of President Zelensky's foreign policy is that nothing is impossible", Kuleba wrote.
Many people at all levels worked on this solution. From the President to diplomats, experts, and the public. Kuleba held separate talks with each democratic faction of the Bundestag this fall. He thanked the deputies of the Federal Republic of Germany for this. And separately to his colleague, the head of the German Foreign Ministry, Annalena Berbock. For agreeing to visit the Holodomor memorial in Kyiv and honoring the victims with a candle and feeling this tragedy.
"... and for the fact that after that the ministry she heads changed its mind and for the first time supported the recognition of the Holodomor as genocide. This step restores historical justice and honors the memory of millions of victims of the genocide that Stalin and his accomplices committed against our people. The world could not stop this crime then, but it can at least stop Russian lies about it now and call it what it was: genocide", Kuleba emphasized.
