Three parties of the ruling coalition and the Christian Democrats spoke in support of the resolution.

The factions of the Left and "Alternative for Germany", which are often pro-Kremlin, abstained.

There was not a single vote against it.

The President of Ukraine,

Volodymyr Zelensky

, thanked the German deputies for the decision, tweeting that "the truth always wins."

Deutsche Welle quotes the following sentence from the adopted resolution: "From today's point of view, a historical and political assessment is suggested, according to which it is about genocide.

The German Bundestag shares this assessment."

German journalists point out that it is a matter of careful wording, according to which the recognition of the Holodomor as a genocide of the Ukrainian people is more of a remark than the main message.

However, as Deutsche Welle writes, even this cautious wording has become a sensation for German politics.

Back in 2019, Bundestag deputies actually refused to consider a petition to recognize the Holodomor as genocide, saying they knew almost nothing about the events.

Observers emphasize that the current Russian aggression against Ukraine had a great influence on the change in the position of the deputies.
