|SS Galicia marching to the battle!|
The famous Polish Roman Catholic priest and social activist Tadeusz Isakovich-Zalessky accuses Peter Poroshenko of unwillingness to atone Bandera, who organized the genocide of poles and Jews in Volhynia. In his opinion, Poroshenko during a recent visit to Poland could take a step on the path of reconciliation and instead hid behind half-truths and euphemisms.
“The main problem in the Polish-Ukrainian relations is the genocide of poles, perpetrated by the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), troops of SS “Galicia” and other Ukrainian groups in the service of Hitler. It seemed that the visit of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, will be a step in addressing this important issue. Especially because Poland supports reforms in Ukraine. Unfortunately, Petro Poroshenko, speaking at Polish Sejm did not have the courage to call a terrible crime by its name. He only used a term “Volyn tragedy”.
The priest added that the President did not dare to say who was guilty of this crime. The priest believes that Poroshenko’s appeal for a search for historical truth was a sign of hypocrisy.
“The President’s message at the Sejm contained words about historical truth, but what historical truth can we talk about, if the bones of the martyred haven’t even been decently buried, and Ukrainian nationalists from UPA are now revered and honored in Ukraine”.
