The Polish Foreign Ministry considers unjustified accusations that Warsaw is trying to choose heroes for Ukraine. This was stated by the Deputy Foreign Minister of Poland Bartosz Cichocki, Wpolityce reports.
"The point of view that Warsaw wants to choose Ukraine's heroes or influence the content of Ukrainian history books is completely unjustified," he said.
But, according to Cichocki, the Polish government will never agree to the Poles being deprived of the right to bury their relatives.
The politician stressed that the issues of historical memory between the countries are still acute, because Ukraine was not interested in the Polish proposal to create a "political mechanism for their settlement."
Earlier, Cichocki said that there is no crisis in Polish-Ukrainian relations. As an example, he cited the cooperation of states in the defense sphere and the position of Warsaw on the question of annexation of Crimea and Russian aggression in Donbas.
Also Cihotsky stressed that Poland "is the leader of pro-Ukrainian initiatives and consistently supports Kyiv." From the latter, Warsaw made it easier for Ukrainians to access their market, which allows them to work legally and earn money.
According to him, even in the "field of history" there is a lasting cooperation, for example, in the preservation of monuments and cemeteries.
