Kiev Sends Note of Protest to Warsaw After Dismantling of UPA Monument

Translated by Ollie Richardson


In Poland a monument was demolished to the fighters of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), which during the Second World War killed tens of thousands of people.

In this regard, Kiev sent a note of protest to Warsaw. The monument was dismantled by local patriots, who oppose the glorification of UPA fighters.

Since mid 2015, this is the eighth such memorial that they have destroyed. Ukraine called the incident a provocation and a desecration of the memory of heroes who gave their lives in the war.

Sympathizers in Poland are advised to watch the new film directed by Wojciech Smarzowski called “Volyn”, which retells the massacre in 1943 in the village of the same name. The victims of the tragedy, according to different data, total from 30,000 to 100,000 people.

The activities of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army UPA are prohibited in Russia by the decision of the Supreme Court.
