The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine believes that recognition of the OUN-UPA as criminal organization by the Polish Sejm would not correspond to the high level of strategic partnership between the two countries, acting director of information policy department at the Foreign Ministry Yevhen Perebyinis said.

"Possible, even hypothetical, adoption of this decision would not correspond to the high level of Ukrainian-Polish relations," he said.

Perebyinis noticed that this draft, submitted by one of the parties, has not yet been considered in the committees of the Sejm and the Polish Parliament as a whole.

According to him, Ukraine has made every effort to celebrate the memory of victims of the Ukrainian-Polish confrontation during the Second World War.

"We are convinced that the both sides should make efforts to avoid politicization of the tragic pages in the history of Ukraine and Poland," Perebyinis said and added that it should be done in the name of establishing the historical truth and justice, friendship and partnership between the people of both sides.

According to him, Ukraine and Poland for more than 20 years of independence have become an example of how to solve these conflicting issues.

"We hope that in the future all the arising issues will be resolved in the same spirit, they will not be politicized. We will leave a matter of history to historians, not politicians," Perebyinis added.
