Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs: There is a problem of confidence in a Ukrainian partner
Bartosz Cichotsky believes that there is a problem when the words of the Ukrainian side are not true. It is reported by Upmp.news with reference to Polish Radio.
“There is a problem when the words of the Ukrainian side absolutely do not correspond to reality; there is a problem of lack of confidence in the Ukrainian partner,” said Polish Foreign Minister, Bartosz Cihotski.
On the waves of the Polish Radio, the deputy head of the Polish diplomacy commented on the latest publication by Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin on the topic of relations between Poland and Ukraine.
“I am ready to assume responsibility for restoring our relations to a normal state and to the standards of a civilized European dialogue,” Klimkin wrote in the latest Polish edition of “Rzeczpospolita”. He added that “the recently adopted Warsaw law on the Institute of National Remembrance is an example of a one-sided, black-and-white perspective on history.”
Commenting on this article, Bartosz Cichotsky stressed that “this problem has existed for a long time.”
“The problem is, when the words of the Ukrainian side absolutely do not correspond to reality. This is a problem of confidence in our Ukrainian partner, who in April 2015, on the day of the visit of the President of Poland to the Verkhovna Rada, adopted the so-called package of laws on the heroization of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army”, – said Tsichotsky.
“This is a problem of a certain process, or a policy of identity of the Ukrainian state, which glorifies the founding myth on the basis of the UPA, Stepan Bandera and Roman Shukhevych. In this glorification there is absolutely no room for reflection over the Volyn crime, over the blood of the Poles, which was spilled in Volyn as a result of deliberate policy of ethnic cleansing”, – said the vice minister.
