History shouldn't affect strategic nature of Ukrainian-Polish relations
The Ukrainian-Polish relations should not be influenced by historical events, the future should be built without mutual enmity and hatred, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said.
"We have reached a common ground that history should not influence the strategic nature of the Ukrainian-Polish relations," Poroshenko told journalists in Kharkiv on Wednesday after the talks with Polish President Andrzej Duda.
"We must remember heroes of the past, honor the memory of innocent victims, but we should firmly move forward. We cannot change history, but we can and we must change the present day and create better conditions for the future so that no one could plant the seed of hatred and hostility in the hearts of Ukrainians or Poles," the Ukrainian president said.
