BUDAPEST........On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the 1932-33 Great Ukrainian Famine, the Hungarian National Assembly has adopted a resolution which recognized the event as a genocide.

The resolution, which also expresses solidarity with the relatives of the victims, is the first such resolution in Europe.

Jaroslava Harkanyi [phonetic], chairman of the National Ukrainian Minority Self-government [of Hungary], conveyed his thanks to the Hungarian parliament for the resolution. [passage omitted]
