The Polish Sejm adopted the final version of the resolution in connection with the 70th anniversary of the Volyn tragedy - without the word "genocide" and without establishing Day of Remembrance on July 11. Instead, a term "ethnic cleansing with features of genocide" is used.

263 deputies voted for moderate formulation with 231 votes needed. The vote was attended by over 440 members, 33 voted "against" and 146 deputies abstained.

The Sejm members also observed a minute of silence in tribute to the memory of the victims of the tragedy.
The statement mentioned that about 100.000 Polish citizens became victims of events in Volyn and Eastern Galicia in 1942-1947. The adopted document noted that the conflict between Ukrainians and Poles appeared in the difficult times of the Second World War, in which "two totalitarianisms" encountered.

"The actions of the German and Soviet occupation created favorable conditions for hatred on ethnic or religious grounds," the statement says.
