‘The stones were utilized. They serve the Polish society. We paved the roads with them’, Slabicki said and added that he was the initiator of the demolition of the memorial.
He noted that this decision was made because the Ukrainians will keep the remains and ‘make the relics of them’.
‘That is why I prevented this. I will return the stones in any other situation but I knew where it would lead and we did everything as I said’, Slabicki noted.
He added that ‘there is no chance for the restoration of the memorial’. According to Slabicki, it would be possible only in the term of the change of the authorities of the region.
The relations between Kyiv and Warsaw escalated during the recent time due to the disagreement on the historical issues. The details are revealed in the article ‘War of memorials: Relations between Ukraine and Poland deteriorated again’.
