The Ukrainian Embassy in Warsaw condemned the manifestation of Polish nationalists at its building, which was held today. This was said by the Ukrainian Embassy in Poland in statement published on the embassy's website.

The statement says that the nationalists led anti-Ukrainian propaganda.

"Consciously or unconsciously, but by their actions and statements they foment intolerance, act in the interests of Kremlin, in the imperial policy in which there is no place for either free Ukraine or free Poland as well as democratic Europe. At the same time, we are grateful to the citizens of the Republic, who on this day came to the embassy in order to counterbalance the nationalist rhetoric to express solidarity with Ukraine and the Ukrainian people under the slogan "For your dignity and ours," the embassy said.

As the Polish Fakty.interia agency notes, nationalists under the embassy chanted slogans: "Shukhevych is a murderer", "Bandera's killers" and held posters with the inscriptions "Banderite is not my brother", "StopAntipolonism, Defend the truth".

The protest was attended by representatives of the National Movement, the All-Polish Youth and the National Radical Camp. During the demonstration, the radicals burned pictures of Stepan Bandera and Roman Shukhevych.

As it was reported earlier, two men attacked the citizen of Ukraine in the tram and beat him up in Wroclaw, Poland as the Center of Monitoring of Expressions of Racism and Xenophobia in Poland. The incident took place near tram stop ‘Bus station’. It is noted that the malefactors also offended the Ukrainian on account of his ethnic descent.

As we reported more than a million of the Ukrainians emigrated to Poland. Also, the Ukrainians who plan to get the permission to stay in Poland are questioned about their attitude toward Stepan Bandera and Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) during the interview. Before this Polish leader Andrzej Duda has signed the bill with amendments to the law about the Institute of the National Memory in Poland. They stipulate criminal responsibility for denial of the Volyn Massacre of the 1940s and forbid the propaganda of the 'Banderite ideology'.
