The Czech citizen, for whom the remains of the Ukrainian writer Oleksandr Oles were exhumed, wanted to be buried in another place. The Second Secretary of the Ukrainian Embassy in the Czech Republic Tatiana Gorupovich announced that siting the relatives of the deceased man, reports Radio Liberty.
"We became aware of that yesterday. Realizing the ethical aspect of the case and the fact that Oleksandr Oles is a famous person in Ukraine, we tried to contact Roman Mykhailyshyn to find another solution. We couldn’t reach him by now, but we found out from the relatives Mykhailyshyn that he had another tomb which was already paid and that he never wanted to be buried in the tomb of Oleksandr Oles,” Gorupovich said.
