Poland seeks to ban Ukrainians with anti-Polish viewsStaff Writer | November 3, 2017
Poland, Ukraine's closest European neighbor and the destination for many crisis-hit Ukrainians in search of jobs, wants to ban those that exhibit "anti-Polish views,” Polish FM Witold Waszczykowski said.
Europe Polish FM Witold Waszczykowski:
"We are aware just how important Ukraine is to us for geopolitical reasons... but the Ukrainians, aware of their country’s significance for our security, believe that issues that divide us, especially historical ones, should be relegated to the second or even third tier in terms of importance," Waszczykowski said, as cited by Radio Poland.
He denounced the Ukrainian authorities for reportedly blocking access to Polish memorials sites in Ukraine, thus impeding their upkeep by the Polish side and works to exhume the remains buried there. ■
