Resolution: PACE refuses to recognize great famine in USSR as genocide of
Ukrainian people


Interfax-Ukraine Strasbourg, April 28 (Interfax) -

The Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) has refused to recognize
the large-scale famine that took place in the Soviet Union during the 1930s
as genocide of the Ukrainian people.

Only 21 assembly members voted for recognizing Holodomor as genocide of the
Ukrainian people, while 55 voted against corresponding amendments to the
draft resolution on the issue, an Interfax correspondent reported.

PACE will soon pass the resolution following a debate that has lasted for
over two hours.
