The Polish press published an open letter three former Presidents of Poland, intellectuals, journalists, community and religious leaders, "Thank you for your letter, and please forgive the wrongs inflicted on our brothers Ukrainian Polish hands. "
"historical truth " published unabridged Polish-letter answer:
in 1894, during the congress of Polish and Ukrainian writers and journalists Lviv, poet, writer and thinker Ivan Franko said: "The whole Slavs no two such people who have the political and spiritual plane so tightly fused with them, so have many mutual respect, but despite this so avoided each other like the Polish and Ukrainian ".
Over time, our common misfortune detachment was replaced by hatred and nationalism, and their bitter fruit - crime - which together experienced Polish and Ukrainian Volyn and Eastern Galicia, Kholm and Bieszczady and the Przemyl Land.
Especially pleased us your email list, with remarkable words "forgive and ask for forgiveness, " which does not dodge responsibility for the wrongs inflicted on Poles in the forties of the last century.
we also honor the victims of fratricidal Polish-Ukrainian conflict.
Thanks for your letter, and please forgive the wrongs caused to our brothers Ukrainian Polish hands. We have before us a similar opinion was expressed by representatives of the Polish Catholic Church, to the mutual forgiveness of our peoples fervently urged Pope John Paul II.
For the combination worked tirelessly Jerzy ¥yedroyts and Jacek Kuron, and the presidents of our countries, let us not forget their heritage.
Guilt requires proper payment, which in the relations between our peoples is its creation of true brotherhood. Contrary Polish and Ukrainian cowardice, in prosperity, but also in evil times that might come to our common Europe that it threatens Russian nationalism and imperialism.
Threats easier to survive together. We continue to admire you and solidaryzuyemosya in the fight against the aggressor, which already occupies more than two years of Ukrainian land, trying to prevent the realization of your dream of living in a united Europe.
