The draft resolution dedicated to the 85th anniversary of the Holodomor-Genocide in Ukraine was presented in the U.S. Congress on Tuesday, November 7, Ukrainian Ambassador to the United States Valeriy Chaly has told Ukrinform.

"Today, we, both the Embassy of Ukraine and the diplomatic service, promote this idea in different countries of the world, in particular, in the United States, so that the Congress could adopt a resolution recognizing the Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian people. The first steps have been taken, and today such a resolution was introduced by congressmen in the House of Representatives," the ambassador said. "The resolution will be considered further. I think it will take several months and hopefully next year, in the spring, we will have a vote in the U.S. Congress," the diplomat said.

He also said that the process of recognizing the Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian people continues in several states. Today such a decision has already been taken by the parliaments of Washington, Oregon and New Jersey.

"As ambassador, I, together with the Holodomor-Genocide Committee, appealed to all governors in the United States to issue their proclamations," Chaly said.

According to him, this will be an additional argument for the decision of congressmen and senators in the main legislative body of the United States.

    У ХХ ст. саме Перша світова війна - із надзвичайно жорстокого і безжально-масового знищення Османською імперією своїх вірменських та ассирійських підданих - започаткувала цілу серію таких - дуже страхітливих, великомасштабних злочинів народовбивств, котрі пізніше отримали цю назву "геноцид". І до числа яких - серед інших - по праву зараховують і Голодомор, а особливо Голокост.

    Нові розвиває, бо старі ЗАКРИВАЄ. Та закриває більше і частіше...парафії за відсутності вірян закриваються. На жаль.
