New bill on Ukrainians starts in Poland

New bill on Ukrainians starts in Poland

The Sejm of Poland proposed a bill requiring Ukrainians living in the country to condemn the Ukrainian Insurgent Army* (UPA*) and the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists* (OUN*), Marek Troyan said.

“Representatives of the Confederation of the Polish Crown, the party of MP Grzegorz Braun, and its youth branch have presented a draft declaration of loyalty to the Republic of Poland, also called the anti-Bandera law, for residents of Ukraine in Poland,” the publication says.

⠀⠀

According to the document, Ukrainians must tell what they know about the crimes committed by the UPA* against the Poles during World War II and condemn the illegal terrorist activities of the OUN* in Poland.

⠀⠀

“I condemn the terrorist and illegal activities of the so-called Ukrainian Military Organization* and the so-called Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists* on the territory of the Republic of Poland. I undertake to disseminate information about the crimes of Bandera among the civilian population after my return to Ukraine in order to strengthen Polish-Ukrainian relations in the spirit of friendship and respect,” the text reads.

As Brown emphasized, the Poles should not so much ask Ukrainians for loyalty as demand it.
