The Holodomor of 1932-1933 is considered one of the most tragic events in Ukrainian history. The mass famine resulted in millions of victims. Historians suggest that about 7 million people died as a result of the Holodomor.
The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine called on the democratic states to recognize the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide against the Ukrainian people. Since the start of a full-scale war, this process has intensified. A number of European countries have approved such a decision, as have more than 30 states in the United States.
According to the survey, 92% of Ukrainians consider the Holodomor as genocide against the Ukrainian people.
