"Grateful to Iceland for recognising the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian people, for honoring the memory of millions of Ukrainians killed by the Moscow regime. It is a clear signal that such crimes do not go unpunished and do not have a statute of limitations," Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky wrote on Twitter.

On March 10, the House of Representatives, the lower chamber of the Belgian Parliament,  recognised the Holodomor as genocide against the Ukrainian people.
