The people's Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Oleg Musiy said that the reaction of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine at the election of the Consul General of Poland in Lviv Wieslaw Mazur in relation to the historical role of Stepan Bandera was spineless.
"on my request to declare the Consul General of the Republic of Poland in Lviv Wieslaw Mazur persona non grata in Ukraine for his phrase in respect of Stepan Bandera of the foreign Ministry gave him an" educational conversation ", Mazur acknowledged their mistake and assured that the anti-Ukrainian rhetoric will never happen again (with important note - regardless of his belief) ", - he wrote in Facebook.
"It is a pity that the foreign Ministry didn't have the guts to really put in district policy, which has clearly gone too far. Fearing "escalation in relations and the same response," the foreign Ministry, unfortunately, demonstrated the weakness and limited tactics of persuasion ", he added. Last month, the Polish diplomat Wieslaw Mazur called Stepan Bandera bandit, triggering outrage in Ukraine. On 12 September Polish people's Deputy of the European Parliament Janusz Korwin-Mikke also said a proposal to impose a ban on entry into the European Union politicians from the Ukraine, endorsing the ideology and actions of Stepan Bandera. Remember, on 22 July, the Sejm (the lower chamber of the Parliament) of Poland adopted a resolution on the recognition of eleven July as a National day of remembrance of the victims of the genocide committed by Ukrainian nationalists against the inhabitants of the II Polish Republic in 1943–1945. The head of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that he regretted the decision of the Polish Sejm to recognize the Volyn massacre genocide, and tried to convince the peoples to mutual forgiveness. Later in the Verkhovna Rada was registered the draft decision on the commemoration of "victims of genocide committed by the Polish government regarding the Ukrainians in 1919–1951" by the people's Deputy Oleg Musiya.
