The historic rapprochement of Ukraine and Poland should be possible to depoliticize, now his word to say, historians and the public.

This was stated by the Chairman of the Institute of national remembrance Vladimir viatrovych, reports, UKRINFORM.

“Historical reconciliation necessary to depoliticize. All that was necessary on the part of politicians in this area has already been made in the past. And each time to raise the issue of mutual forgiveness at the political level – only to generally discredit the idea of reconciliation,” he said.

Vyatrovich said that in 2003 he was made joint statements at the presidential level of both countries, also, there were relevant statements on the level of parliaments. In his opinion, the parties should understand that the only possible form of reconciliation is “forgive and ask for forgiveness, otherwise the results will not be”.
