For three years in Poland, 15 times desecrated Ukrainian monuments – viatrovych
The negotiations of Ukraine with Poland on the legalization of monuments erected without compliance with the existing legislation continued at least 2014. The parties agreed not to move the monument, but on Polish territory this agreement has neglected: from 2014 to 2017 there have been 15 acts of vandalism on the Ukrainian places of memory, including on the graves.
In Poland, trying to show the Ukrainians anti-Semites large – viatrovych
It is declared by the head of the Ukrainian Institute of national memory Vladimir vyatrovich.
“These artists were the first vandals, then the responsibility for part of the destruction had taken over some public enterprises. Despite this, the law enforcement bodies of Poland have not found the perpetrators, monuments were restored, the government condemned the vandalism,” he stressed.
Also, the scientist recalled that in 2017 there were four acts of desecration of Polish monuments in Ukraine.
“All of them condemned as representatives of the authorities and political forces (including nationalist). In the end, all four seats (not including legalized) recovery efforts of the Ukrainian side,” – said vyatrovich and noted that the Ukrainian side demanded a symmetrical recovery of Ukrainian monuments, but this did not happen.
“On the contrary: on the eve of 70 anniversary of the action “Vistula” with a live broadcast destroy Ukrainian monument in a cemetery in Gruzovikah. Vandalism — including the national emblem of Ukraine endorsed in statements by the Polish Ministry of culture and the Institute of national memory,” – said the head of the Institute.
Viatrovych noted that changes in the law on the Institute of national remembrance put an end to the possibility of historical dialogue by imposing criminal sanction for the expression of positive evaluations of a part of Ukrainian history. On the meeting of Vice premiers of the States with the Ukrainian side to the issues that have been raised previously (restoration of monuments, the removal of prohibition of entry to the responsible persons from Ukraine) has increased caution about the need to change the law, which not only stops the dialogue of historians, but also jeopardizes the rights of all Ukrainians in Poland, said viatrovych.

“That is, the result of the Polish initiatives, we were already minus the third floor, compared to last year.
And from the Polish side sounds “naive” astonishment “why failed to agree on the question of renewal of places of memory and the search and exhumation work?” – said the scientist.
“… going to the talks have set ourselves two tasks: solving problems and maintaining normal relations with counterparts. I guess neither of these tasks is important for those who sit opposite us at the negotiation table,” he concluded.
Videoseat of Poland adopted the controversial law on Ukrainian nationalists
There now will be punished for denying that the Ukrainian nationalists in the last century committed crimes against the poles. Polish politicians have made amendments to the law on the Institute of national remembrance. A fine or deprivation of liberty for a term up to three years threatens those who support the actions of the OUN and the UPA, which the poles considered criminal.

Recall, January 26, the Polish Sejm adopted the law on amendments to the law on the Institute of national remembrance. The bill consists of two parts. The first is that the accountability will involve all who argues, supports, or promotes criminal, according to poles, the actions of the OUN and UPA. The law concerns the definition of the crimes of Ukrainian nationalists and Ukrainian organizations that collaborated with the Third Reich. In the second group of changes we are talking about criminal liability of persons who denigrate the role of Poland in the Second world war, for example, “credited the Polish people or state responsibility or complicity in the crimes committed by the Third Reich.”
6 February the President of Poland Andrzej Duda signed it into law.
