The Italian Senate has recognised the Holodomor in Ukraine as genocide. The 'death by starvation', the artificial famine created by Stalin to bend Ukraine and collectivise agriculture, is a crime denied for almost a century.

An international group of Catholic theologians and other experts are gathering in a private workshop, in Rome, from December 8 to 10, 2022.
