Today, Congressional Ukrainian Caucus Co-Chairs Representative Sandy Levin (D-MI), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), and Andy Harris, M.D. (R-MD) praised the House Foreign Affairs Committee for passing H.Res.931, which commemorates the Ukrainian Famine/Genocide, also known as the Holodomor, and issued the following statement:

"Today's markup of H.Res.931 is a reminder that the lessons of the Ukrainian Famine remain poignant as Congress continues to confront human rights abuses and support the freedom of speech and self-determination of peoples in today's world," said the Caucus co-chairs. "Acknowledging this past is also a testament to Ukrainian Americans, many of whom whose families suffered through this crime against humanity, whose story of survival enriches our communities and reaffirms that truth will prevail over the power of those who seek to deny genocide or minimize the horrors of the Holodomor."
