Victor Yushchenko believes the 1947 deportation of southeastern Poland’s Ukrainian, Boyko and Lemko populations, which is better known under its codename, Operation Wisla (Akcja Wisła), as well as deportations of Ukrainians between 1944 and 1946, planned and carried out by the former totalitarian regimes, have not been politically and legally assessed in the independent Ukraine, president' press office reported.

“To restore historical justice towards the deported Ukrainians and support public initiatives,” and due to the upcoming sixtieth anniversary of the operation, Victor Yushchenko asked Parliament Speaker Oleksandr Moroz on Thursday to hold a special session of the Verkhovna Rada to discuss the issue publicly and demonstrate to the international community the irreversibility of Ukraine’s democratic choice.
