Verkhovna Rada Speaker Andriy Parubiy hopes that the United States Congress will soon adopt a resolution on recognizing the Holodomor of 1932-33 as the genocide of the Ukrainian people.

Parubiy said this during a meeting of the agenda setting council at the Ukrainian Parliament on Monday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Ukraine enjoys very strong support from the United States of America. Soon we will be able to witness adoption of a resolution on recognizing the Holodomor as the genocide of the Ukrainian people. This year we mark the 85th anniversary. I'm sure that if the Congress makes the decision (and I asked U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Ryan and the Committee on Foreign Affairs to do this), many other countries, including European ones, will adopt the identical resolutions," the Verkhovna Rada speaker said.
