Poland does not seek to choose historical heroes for Ukrainians, according to Deputy Foreign Minister of Poland Bartosz Cichocki.
In an interview with PAP, the diplomat called unfounded allegations that Poland intends to "choose heroes" for the Ukrainians, at the same time noting that Warsaw will not agree with losing its citizens' right to bury their dead – the key right in Christian culture. He added that no one in Poland deprived Ukrainians of such opportunity, wPolityce.pl wrote.
