Polish border guards did not allowed Ukrainian band Ot Vinta enter Poland. In the explanatory memorandum the border service said that they are "a threat to law and public order", said the head of the Ukrainian Association in Poland Petro Tym on Facebook, liga.net reports.
Tym noted that the group has performed in Poland 20 times and had to give a concert today in Warsaw. Initially, the participants of Ot Vinta had to perform in Peremyshl on July 2. However, the local Polish nationalists accused the group of "promoting the ideology of Bandera". The concert was canceled at the insistence of the local authorities.
"Association of Ukrainians in Poland has a growing concern looking at aggressive actions against the Ukrainian community in Poland and the strengthening of anti-Ukrainian hysteria in our country", Tym said.
