"The Parliament of the Republic of Moldova, in the spirit of solidarity with the Ukrainian people and in the name of justice, declares that the Bolshevik totalitarian regime of the former USSR as a result of the Holodomor policy is responsible for the act of deliberate genocide against the Ukrainian people," the declaration reads.
