Polish Foreign Minister: Frank dialogue between Ukrainian and Polish historians needed

A frank dialogue between Polish and Ukrainian historians can help solve historical problems of Ukraine and Poland.

Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz stated this on the air of the Polsat News Polish news channel.

"A frank dialogue between historians is needed to clarify the complicated issues related to Volyn, the murders of Poles," Czaputowicz emphasized.

The Polish Foreign Minister said that two days ago he had met with Ukrainian Ambassador to Poland Andriy Deshchytsia, at his request, to discuss the bilateral relations.

“I hope that Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine [Pavlo Rozenko] will come to Poland and hold talks with Deputy Prime Minister Piotr Gliński  on unblocking the issue of exhumation [of the Poles fallen in Ukraine],” Czaputowicz said.

He noted that the Polish-Ukrainian relations in the matter of history "remain unresolved".

As reported, the Polish Senate adopted a law on the Polish Institute of National Remembrance, which foresees criminal liability for denying the crimes of Ukrainian nationalists against Poles.

Changes to this bill also led to a diplomatic scandal between Poland and Israel. According to Jerusalem, this bill is bad, because it prohibits criticism of Poles who could have been involved in the murders of Jews during the Second World War.
