Head of the Lviv Regional State Administration Oleh Syniutka said the memorial had been restored by local residents: "No money has been allocated from the state or local budgets for the restoration. I was very pleased to learn that ordinary people, neighbors, ethnic Ukrainians, decided to show an example of how the Ukrainians and the Poles should behave now when we are facing a common threat from Russia."
The official added it would be perfect if Poland restored monuments to Ukrainians destroyed in 2016: "It would be a fantastic act of reciprocity, and it seems to me this is the very move our enemies don't expect."
As previously reported, unidentified vandals damaged a monument to Poles executed by Nazi troops for helping partisans, located in Huta Peniatska village in western Ukraine. According to various estimates, the tragedy claimed lives of 800 people, including women, children and the elderly.
