In the morning of March 29th, about 150 ethnic Poles living in Ukraine organized a protest action and blocked the road route Lvov — Warsaw. The people opposed the violation of the rights of Poles in Ukraine, and the defilements of Polish monuments. In addition, the protest of people was a response to the attack on the Polish Embassy in Lutsk by unknown people. The huge traffic jam of cars quickly accumulated at the scene of the action. Indignant drivers sometimes entered into fights with protesters.

“We want Poland’s attention to be drawn to how we are humiliated here, how our rights are violated. Our governmental buildings are shot at, and soon it will be us being shot too,” stated the leader of the action Taras Kmet to Ukrainian journalists.

It should be noted that the police that arrived on the scene detained about 80 people, among whom were both protesters and drivers.
