Police detained the criminals on November 20 in their apartment in Krakow. The law enforcers are investigating into motivation behind the crime, committed by the young men.
Earlier we reported that five men severely attacked a student from Ukraine in the Polish city of Żory.
Last year, two unidentified men committed a hate crime against a Ukrainian in Wroclaw. They offended the Ukrainian’s honour or dignity on grounds of nationality.
