Motion S4M-08375: Marco Biagi, Edinburgh Central, Scottish National Party, Date Lodged: 21/11/2013

80 Years since Ukrainian Famine

That the Parliament notes that it has been 80 years since the Holodomor, the Ukrainian famine of 1932-33; also notes that, although the exact number of mortalities may never be known, conservative estimates place the number in the scale of millions; understands that there is a consensus among historians that this was not only an entirely avoidable tragedy, but a deliberate genocide enacted by the brutal Stalin regime; believes that Scotland is not alone in recognising these events as genocide and is joined by many other nations in condemning them; commends the work of the campaigners raising awareness of the Holodomor, including the Holodomor Memorial website and holodomor.org.uk, and passes its condolences to the relatives of victims of the Holodomor, as marked by its official day of remembrance on 26 November in Ukraine.
