On November 11 the Institute of World Policy held a public discussion and presented a discussion paper on the Ukrainian-Poland relations within the project ”Ukraine`s Foreign Policy Audit”. In particular, it covers the controversies of common history, including the subject of the Volhynian tragedy, Ukraine Today reports.
The research paper was written by Kateryna Zarembo, Deputy Director of Institute of World Policy. Diplomats, policy and decision makers, experts have been invited to take part in the discussion, according to Ukraine Today.
The main speaker of the table were Jan Pieklo, Ambassador of the Republic of Poland to Ukraine, Lukasz Adamski, Deputy Director of the Centre for Polish-Russian Dialogue and Understanding, Yaroslav Romanchuk, President of the Association of Ukrainian business in Poland, Oksana Yurynets, Member of the Ukrainian Parliament, Co-chairman of the inter-parliamentary friendship group with Poland, Oleg Musiy, MP, member of the inter-parliamentary friendship group with Poland.
She pointed, that history is an important policy in both Ukraine and Poland, but it is perceived as directed against each other. But it`s not true, Zarembo, states, because the key objective of the decision of the Polish Senate and Sejm on Volhynia as genocide is the appeal to domestic audiences, not the Ukrainian or any else.
