The 70th anniversary of the Volyn tragedy was marked by the historically one-sided resolutions of the Polish Senate and Sejm; the request of Group of 148 that scorns anything Ukrainian (148 MPs from the Party of Regions and the Communist Party wrote an official letter to the Polish Sejm, the lower house of the Polish Parliament, requesting it to recognize the Volyn tragedy as a genocide of the Polish people – Ed.); and a surprising symbiosis of the Communist Party, aggressive advocates of the Russian World in Ukraine and radical right-wing forces in Poland on the one hand, and the feeble stance of most of the Ukrainian intelligentsia regarding this issue on the other.
