“Alabama state recognized Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine as a genocide,” the message says.
Therefore, Alabama became the 21st state to recognize Holodomor as a genocide of the Ukrainian nation.
‘This month we join Ukrainians around the world in marking the 85th anniversary of the Holodomor, when millions of innocent Ukrainians were deliberately starved to death by the regime of Josef Stalin. The Soviet Union’s barbaric seizure of Ukrainian land and crops was undertaken with the deliberate political goal of subjugating the Ukrainian people and nation. This catastrophic man-made famine was one of the most atrocious acts of the twentieth century and a brutal reminder of the crimes of communism,’ reads the message.
