We must be aware that without explaining and writing down the history of the Volhynian crime to the very end, Russia will always use the Volhynian card to drive a wedge between Poles and Ukrainians, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Friday at the cemetery in the now-defunct village of Puźniki in Ukraine.

Prime Minister Morawiecki, in connection with the upcoming 80th anniversary of the Volhynian Massacre, paid a visit to the cemetery in the now-defunct village of Puźniki on Friday Ukraine (Ternopol region), where the search for a mass grave is underway.

He recalled the story of the murder of Polish villagers in February 1945 by the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), which was one of the last acts of the tragedy of the Volhynia crime.

– We call for finding all burial places so that we can exhume the victims and give them a proper burial. We will not rest, I will not rest until the last victim of that terrible crime in Volhynia, the crime of Eastern Galicia, is found,” he assured.

The Prime Minister emphasized that it was a duty and that “we owe it to everyone who lived in this place at that time and survived or did not survive this hecatomb”. He added that this tragedy took place not only in Volhynia, but also in the areas then called Eastern Galicia.

As he said, it is estimated that over 100,000 Poles lost their lives “in this hell”. – Hell created by Ukrainian nationalists, but which was possible because the Third Reich ruled here, because the Polish state disappeared, because the Polish state was liquidated by the German Third Reich – he added.
