"By his statement, Yanukovych directly violated the norms of the Ukrainian law of November 28, 2006 on the Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine, the first article of which clearly states: ‘The Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine is genocide against the Ukrainian people.’ And Article 2 says: ‘Public denial of the Holodomor of 1932-1933 in Ukraine is considered the desecration of the memory of millions of Holodomor victims, the humiliation of the dignity of the Ukrainian people and is illegal," the party’s press service said on Tuesday.

The document also says that "Yanukovych has ignored a ruling of January 13, 2010 by Kyiv’s Court of Appeal, which recognized the leaders of the totalitarian Bolshevik regime as those guilty of ‘genocide against the Ukrainian national group in 1932-33 through the artificial creation of living conditions intended for its partial physical destruction.’"

The press service said that the president had "actually opposed himself to the position of parliaments in Estonia, Australia, Canada, Hungary, Lithuania, Georgia, Poland, Peru, Paraguay, Ecuador, Colombia, Mexico and Latvia, which officially recognized the Holodomor as an act of genocide against the Ukrainian people." The head of state also contradicts the position of the European Parliament, which recognized the Holodomor as a crime against the Ukrainian people, the press service said.
