On March 19, Polish nationalist organizations held a rally under the Ukrainian Embassy in Warsaw, where they burned portraits of Stepan Bandera and Roman Shukhevych , according to Europeiska Pravda.

The event was described by one of its participants, Polish deputy Robert Winnicki from the ultranationalist movement Ruch Narodowy, represented in the Polish Sejm by one deputy. The Ruch Narodowy representative says the rally is a response to a recent nationalist march held in Lviv on March 4 in the honor of Roman Shukevych, who is "responsible for the genocide in Volyn". The rally was joined by the National Radical Camp and the All-Polish Youth organization.

Nationalists chanted slogans: "Shukhevych is a murderer", "Banderites are killers" and held posters with the inscriptions "Banderite is not my brother", "StopAntipolonism, Defend the truth". The protesters called on the Polish government to "radically change its policy towards Kyiv". In the end, the nationalists burned portraits of Stepan Bandera and Roman Shukhevych.

Ukraine has condemned an anti-Ukrainian rally held by a group of Polish ultranationalists outside the Ukrainian Embassy in Warsaw on Monday.

According to the statement, the Ukrainian Embassy in the Republic of Poland condemns the rally of some Polish nationalist organizations that on March 19 gathered outside the embassy in Warsaw and pronounced anti-Ukrainian propaganda.

"Consciously or not, but with their actions and statements, they foment intolerance and act in Kremlin's interests. In its imperial policy, there is no place either for a free Ukraine, nor a free Poland, nor a democratic Europe", - the Ukrainian embassy said in a statement.

At the same time, as reported, Poles also came to the Ukrainian embassy, who expressed solidarity with Ukraine and the Ukrainian people under the slogan "For your and our dignity".
