On Nov. 24, 2018, Ukraine commemorates the 85th anniversary of the Holodomor (Great Famine) 1932-1933 in Ukraine.The Great Famine was part and parcel of the Stalinist regime's forcible collectivization of the peasantry that accounted for 80 percent of Ukraine's population, of the communist campaign to suppress the national consciousness and aspiration of the Ukrainian people for self-determination.Holodomor covers a period between April 1932 and November 1933 during which millions of people died in Ukraine.By designating the Holodomor as a genocide, Ukraine seeks to draw the attention of the international community to the fact that artificial famines continue to be used as a weapon, and thereby to prevent such criminal acts from occurring elsewhere in the world.The Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine was recognized as the genocide of the Ukrainian people at the parliamentary and regional levels in 24 countries.
