The foreign ministry of Bulgaria released a message on their social media platform to honour and remember the unwitting victims of the Holodomor. a man-made feminine that wreaked havoc in Ukraine in 1932–1933 while Joseph Stalin was in power. The primary grain-producing regions of the nation were devastated by the more extensive Soviet famine, which included the Holodomor.
Today we honour and remember the innocent victims of the #Holodomor. We must keep the memory of this inhuman, barbaric act of the #Stalinist regime against millions people, so to never let it repeat. Weaponizing food is inadmissible.

In light of the current situation, which nearly led to conditions of a new genocide in Ukraine, the ministry encouraged other nations to act quickly to prevent a recurrence of the such feminine.
As Russia attempted to sub bottle Ukrainian ships bringing grain and other food supplies to various parts of the world, many nations concluded that Putin was weaponizing food, similar to Stalin, to seize control over Ukraine.
A new contract was agreed on November 6 with new policies to resume food deliveries and prevent famine in many nations reliant on ships travelling through the Black Sea following Russia’s withdrawal from the grain deal.
The history of the Holodomor incident is quite complicated as some historians believe Joseph Stalin planned and exploited the famine to sabotage the Ukrainian independence movement. While Other claims that the Soviet Union’s rapid industrialization and collectivization of agriculture were the leading cause of famine.
As quoted by Wikipedia,25 nations issued a joint statement to the UN in 2003 estimating that 10 million Ukrainian individuals lost their lives due to starvation. However, contemporary scholarship places the death toll between 3.5 and 5 million. The famine’s permanent effects on Ukraine are still felt today.
Along with several other nations, Ukraine officially acknowledged the Holodomor as a Soviet-era genocide against the Ukrainian people in 2006.
