KYIV. Aug 31 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy and Marshal of the Polish Sejm Marek Kuchcinski during a Tuesday meeting discussed cooperation and security issues in the region at the parliamentary level, the press service of the Ukrainian parliament has said.
Parubiy noted that “cooperation in the Baltic and the Black Sea dimension, in the zone of geopolitical alliance ABC (Intermarium) has a great future.” According to him, such cooperation “provides the mechanisms of the EU strengthening and the rapid integration of Ukraine into the European Union.”
The report notes that much of the time was devoted to the geopolitical prospects of cooperation and further development vision of the European Union.
Special attention was given to the decree of the Polish parliament, which has caused considerable resonance in Ukraine, according to the tragic pages of history.
The parliamentary chairman noted that there has always been a tradition between Ukraine and Poland to give an overall assessment of our tragic history.
“When some of peoples give the one-sided assessment of the actions, it causes resonance and leads to incorrect assessments and distortion of historical facts. Such things are unacceptable. Ukraine and Poland should find mechanisms for joint assessment of those events that took place on our lands, especially that they took place solely as a result of the occupation policy of the Russian Empire, which at that time was the Bolshevist Russia,” Parubiy said. According to him, the occupation of common lands by troops of totalitarian Russia has caused many tragic events.
The Verkhovna Rada chairman also said during the press conference that they discussed ways to overcome the misunderstanding that took place between our peoples.
“I think we were able to find mechanisms and ways to remove these misunderstandings and remember that now Ukraine protects not only the security of its state, but also of Poland, all the Europe and the entire free world. It is extremely essential for us to remember about our main front, which is located in the east as it was a hundred years ago,” Parubiy said.
