As it was reported earlier the Senate of Poland adopted a law on the National Memory Institute of Poland, which criminalizes the denial of the crimes of Ukrainian nationalists against the Poles. Polish Sejm on January 26 adopted the bill, providing a criminal penalty for public accusations of Poland of crimes during Holocaust, of helping Nazi Germany, of military crimes or crimes against humanity. The bill forbids to use combination of words “Polish death camp” when describing concentration camps that were on the territory of Poland. Any citizen of the country, including foreigners that breached the law will have to pay a fine or imprisoned for up to three years.

The U.S. State Department urged Poland on Wednesday to re-evaluate the draft law on the Institute of National Memory, expressing concern about consequences on Warsaw’s relations with the United States and Israel if the draft becomes law. The bill has triggered a diplomatic spat between Israel and Warsaw’s conservative government since its initial approval in the lower house of parliament last week, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu comparing it to an effort to change history.
