Macierewicz stressed that Russia "used" Ukrainian nationalists in the events of 1939-1945.
As reported, Ukraine and Poland have disagreements over the tragic events in Volyn and Eastern Galicia in 1943-1944. In late 1990s, a joint commission of Polish and Ukrainian historians was set up to study the events. The commission revealed the presence of obvious discrepancies in the interpretation of the events by certain Polish and Ukrainian historians. Ukrainian researchers note that the Volyn tragedy was a consequence of the war between the Armia Krajowa (Poland's Home Army) and the UPA (Ukrainian Insurgent Army), where civilian population was also involved. Apart from alleged mass killings carried out by Ukrainian nationalists, the Polish side is said to have also resorted to repression against Ukrainian civilians with the number of victims ranging between 10,000-20,000 persons.
