Polish law enforcers suspect seven Polish citizens of attacking Ukrainians on the grounds of their origin. According to Lodz district Prosecutor’s Office, insulting inscriptions against Ukrainians emerged in Kutno town (central Poland), in the neighborhood where the Ukrainian diaspora live.  

Similar inscriptions turned up at the compound in Kutno where about 120 Ukrainian workers reside. Lodz district Prosecutor’s Office claimed that January 17, several men wearing masks broke into the compound. One of the residents, 39-year-old man was bludgeoned and admitted to hospital. The assailants beat up a group of six Ukrainians and broke stuff in the kitchen.  

The attackers were detained. All of them are local residents, citizens of Poland, aged 23 to 39 years old. 

It's not the first time when such incidents between Ukrainians and Poles occur. Last summer, a conflict between Ukrainian and Polish football fans took place in Kyiv.
