Today, on the 28th of February, we recollect the massacre of Poles in Volhynia, one of the most blatant tragedies of the XX century. The annihilation of thousands of Poles was conducted by bandera`s fascists for ethnic and cultural belonging and it has revealed the brutish essence of the nationalism, the key idea of which is not a creation but the destruction, the extermination of everything foreign and different.

During the last year Donbass citizens learned in full what is genocide, pain and suffering. We understand extremely well all the feelings the Poles are experiencing and we condole with them. Today we can see, that all history lessons unfortunately appear to be unnoticed and thoughtless.

Bandera`s descendants nowadays continue annihilating everything again, threatening our nations, leaving both in Ukraine and bordering on it. We call on all Polish community and all Polish nation to gather and set aside political and other preferences. You should understand that if you dont stop this sheer evil, the tragedy similar to the massacre of Poles in Volhynia will happen again. We believe that you are starting to understand this fact better and one day you will be able to influence on your government,and it will take an adequate and honest position towards Kiev misanthropic regime.
