Poles who are suspected of setting fire to the office of Hungarian Culture Association in Uzhgorod on February 4, were detained in Poland. This reports with reference to the press secretary of the minister-coordinator of the Polish special services Stanislav Sharin.

It is noted that the suspects were detained on February 21 and 22.

"With respect to the two detainees, a preventive measure was chosen in the form of a three-month arrest, and in respect of another of the suspects - bail and police supervision," Sharin said.

In the opinion of Gennady Moskal, the chairman of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration, Russian special services are staying behind the arson of the office.

"I have no doubt that the Russian special services are behind the arson of the Hungarian Culture Association office," the official website said.

According to him, the arson was committed by citizens of Poland, members of the radical pro-Russian organization "Falanga".

"All these special operations aimed at destroying the situation on interethnic grounds and provoking the Donbas scenario in Transcarpathia were inspired directly by the Russian FSB. In this situation I am surprised by the weak reaction of our law enforcement and security agencies," Moskal said.

He emphasizes that such provocations will not have any consequences for good-neighborly relations of Ukrainians, Hungarians and representatives of other nationalities living in Transcarpathia in peace and harmony.
