Polish public campaign called "Race of Independence" uses a prewar map of the country, which includes part of the current territory of Ukraine, Belarus and Lithuania. It was stated by public figure Witold Jurasz in his Facebook. The poster of this project depicting prewar map of Poland was also placed in the building of Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 

At the same time organizers of the civil campaign note that they have done it deliberately.
"We would like to inform you that is our unique view, showing how two separate maps of Poland are put on one another. First is a map of the border since 1918, after Poland has gained its independence, and the second one is a modern map. This division provides signature 1918 - 2015," as said in a statement.

It should be noted that Ukrainin Ministry of Foreign Affairs gave no comments on the situation with the map. Mayor of Lviv Andrii Sadovyi stated that he asked Consul General of Poland in Lviv to give an official explanation on the incident.
