432 deputies voted for the document, noone voted against.

The only amendment that the Polish MPs introduced during the discussion of the draft resolution was the deletion of the word "fratricidal" from the document to describe the crimes committed in Volyn region.

Previously, a number of Ukrainian experts and politicians have stated that this decision may lead to worsening of relations between Ukraine and Poland.
