This was reported on the website   of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland.

 

At the same time, the diplomat emphasized that reconciliation will become impossible if in Ukraine next year large-scale celebrations on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of creation of UPA are organised.

 

As a reminder, in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Deputies registered a resolution “about the celebration of anniversary of creation of UPA”.

 

Also, it is worth remembering that fighters of UPA took an active part in the massacre of Poles at Volyn in 1943. The Polish Sejm officially recognized these events as genocide performed by Ukrainian nationalists.
