Polish Defense Minister Antoni Macierewiczbelieves that Russia also bears apportionment of liability for “Volyn crime” of the Ukrainians of 1943 – 1944.
He claimed that on Polish Television on July 11.
When answering the question about the role of Russian propaganda in covering the Volyn events of 1943 – 1944, Macierewicz noted that flackery in Russian propaganda is obvious.
However, according to Macherevich, this should obstruct us from understanding the role of Russia itself in forcing the ethnic conflict, which is going to be recognized officially in Poland nowadays.
“This is obvious. But this should not prevent us from realizing that the true enemy, who used a part of Ukrainian nationalist forces for that bloody crime, the genocide, is actually Russia. Here is the source of this murderous crime,” – specified Macierewicz.
To recall, the events of 1943 – 1944 in Volyn, when UPA fighters fell back to organized mass killing of the Polish, are called “Volyn Crime” in Poland, while in Ukraine it is called “Volyn tragedy” now.
