Mayor of Lvov Calls for the Restitution of Property in Exchange for EU Membership

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


Previously confiscated property should be returned to their former owners if they have documents confirming the right of ownership.

Such an opinion was stated by the mayor of Lvov, leader of the party “Self-help” Andrey Sadovyi in an interview to the Kiev magazine “Korrespondent”, answering the question whether Lvov residents are ready to pass through the painful issue of restitution in exchange for EU membership.

“Coming back to restitution, I can make a prediction — it will be an issue of the second half of the twenty-first century. But it is unlikely to be as horrible and painful as they say it will be, reassured the mayor of Lvov. If there is a family living in Lvov from which everything was seized impudently and who has documents of this property, it must be given back. Anyway, it is necessary to find a compromise”.
