Members of the Polish-Ukrainian archaeological expedition found on the territory of the ancient Greek colony of Olbia (now Mykolaiv region) fragments of the house and valuable items dated to the IV century. This was reported by Radio Poland.
"The crockery is in very good condition, and it is clear that they are made in a good workshop, so we assume that the house we are studying belonged to the rich townspeople. they could afford expensive crockery. So far, in Olbia, we have not been able to find such a valuable and a large tableware," the head of the expedition Alfred Twardecky said.
The research project involved scientists from the Warsaw National Museum and the Institute of Archeology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
As it was reported earlier, Ukraine canceled the permission of Polish Institute of National Remembrance to search and exhume Polish, buried in Ukraine, and did not agree to restore them. This worsened relations between two countries. It happened in April after the monument to Ukrainian Insurgent Army in Hruszowice (Poland) was toppled. Countries discussed the issue a few times, though unsuccessfully – the sides were just trading accusations.
Pavlo Klimkin, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister said that Ukraine and Poland had to cooperate on the question on the exhumation of the citizens who died in the World War II and during the post-war period. He noted this answering the question about the results of the Polish-Ukrainian excavations in Hruszowice in the place of the destroyed monument to Ukrainian Insurgent Army officers in Poland.
