President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko held a phone conversation with President of Poland Andrzej Duda. The Head of State congratulated the President of Poland on the 226th anniversary of the Constitution of Rzeczpospolita.

The parties praised the results of the session of the Consultative Committee of the Ukrainian and Polish Presidents that took place on April 11 in Kyiv.

In the context of commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the “Vistula” operation, President Petro Poroshenko expressed hope that the Polish government will adhere to the position of resolute condemnation of this crime of the communist regime that resulted in forced resettlement of 140 thousand Ukrainians.

The President condemned the incident on dismantling the Ukrainian monument that took place on April 26 in Hruszowice village near Przemyśl. He emphasized the inadmissibility of desecration of Ukraine’s state symbols and noted that a response from the Polish government will be required.

In his turn, Andrzej Duda promised to consider this incident personally and assess it properly in order to prevent the recurrence in the future.

The parties agreed to coordinate steps on legalization of all burial sites both in Ukraine and Poland to ensure their proper protection at the state level under the bilateral agreement on preservation of memorial sites.
