‘The IPN cannot define the heroes for the Ukrainians to choose. However, the institute cannot keep silent on the crimes against the Poles committed in Volyn and Eastern Lesser Poland’, Szarek claimed.

According to the Chairman of the IPN, Holodomor in Ukraine, illegal activity of the Catholic Church, the activity of the anti-communist figures in 1970-s can be the common historical topics that can unite Poland and Ukraine instead of dividing them.

Szarek added that the cooperation in the exchange of the archival documents develops well between Poland and Ukraine.
