More and more Ukrainians are becoming the victims of attacks by Polish nationalists which ignored both by the Polish and Ukrainian authorities.
“Anti-Ukrainian sentiment is intensified along the Ukrainian-Polish border”, said the former mayor of the border town of Rava-Ruska Irina Vereschuk, assessing the growth of anti-Ukrainian sentiment in Poland, in particular the recent “March of the eagles Przemysl and Lviv”, which was held under the patronage of the mayor of the city, shouting “Death to Ukrainians”. “Przemysl is also a border town, where is concentrated the largest Ukrainian diaspora, which is constantly exposed to aggression by Polish nationalists. Local government knows there is such a situation, it is aware of a very strong right-wing elements”, Vereschuk told.
However, she says that fault rests with the President Poroshenko, who ignores the Ukrainian diaspora during his visits to Poland.
