“All democratic factions in Germany have reached an agreement on a joint resolution on the Holodomor, voting will take place next week. It has already been decided: the Bundestag considers this a genocide,” Dmitry Kuleba wrote, adding gratitude to politicians from the SPD, the Greens, Free Democrats and Christian -democratic union.
It is also known from sources that in the previous weeks Kuleba held conversations on this subject with all democratic factions of the coalition and opposition. They were not advertised publicly so as not to harm the process.
This issue was also raised by President Volodymyr Zelensky in a conversation with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier when he visited Kyiv in October. In past years, the German Foreign Ministry opposed the recognition of the Holodomor as genocide.
On November 24, the Upper House of the Parliament of Ireland, as well as the Parliament of Moldova, recognized the Holodomor as a genocide of the Ukrainian people, and the Romanian Parliament recognized the Holodomor as a crime against humanity and the Ukrainian people.
