Opole District Court of Poland sentenced five men who started a fight with students from Ukraine. Polske Radio reports this.

The incident happened back in December 2018 in Pruszkow near Opole, where students from Ukraine live in a boarding school, attending a local high school.

The Ukrainians said they had been attacked by the local Poles. They believe the fight could have happened because of their nationality. Instead, the Poles blame the incident on Ukrainians, claiming they were provoked and calling Ukrainians “aggressive foreigners.” The defendants denied that they had a negative attitude towards persons of other nationalities.
