point taken. It would NOT be practical to say the least.
But there is one reason for which it's important to stick to the facts: facts are important in themselves, otherwise we end up with a Ministry of truth.
You lost me here.
So: don't exaggerate by saying that Poles were oppressors which is proven by slaying Poles. German Nazis proved that Poles were slaves by slaying Poles. We were and are neither of those things.
and where in my post did I say it? Poles oppressed Ukrainians - true. I repeat. Ukrainians were oppressed by Poles. Just to clarify in case you will run into denial again.
Now - did I try to pretend that Poland did not take down Churches, interfere with religion, ignore Ukrainian language? NOT. I said that was a wrong and stupid thing to do, though the leaders of the time thought it a good stratagem in the Russian conflict. But - to hack families to pieces??? UPA were as barking mad as Dirlewanger.
I never said such a thing, have I? Never mind what has driven the Poles to do that. I am not getting into that.
What I told you in November: at the time you were gaining a national Conscience, where you thought about yourselves as Ukrainians, instead as 'from here'.
I am not sure what you are referring to? Are you referring the the Orange revolution by any chance? If that is the case then I was in Poland at that time and I saw the immense support of Poles. However, I would like to to inform that for an average Ukrainian, me included, I have never though of myself : I am from there, so I find your comment tad patronizing to be honest.
I understand a lot of what happened, and that we stood in your way to your own identity.
No you did not, don't assume that much. When Poles were in Ukraine, they did, but they are not longer there, so there is no problem.
You have been aggressive. (I'm assuming you're Ukrainian from previous comments). And that's fine, this is not a peaceful land, there had been wars before. But to hack families to pieces???
Again, please stop being patronizing.
There is also the thing of Soviet regime, you were on the red side,
I was not there during those time, so I think that this comment is irrelevant, however I understand what you are trying to say.
So, the state of today - the borders are coming down, trips are going abroad to see Ukraine, it's pretty.
well, it is nice to see that you liked it.
I may buy property there. I hope you welcome my money.
Go ahead, I have nothing against it. If the government of Ukraine allows other nationalities to purchase property, it is up to them. I have no saying it this to be honest.
From what I understand, Ukraine is a separate country now and is interested in good trading, economic and political relationship with Poland, but this is it. It should be good enough for both parties, me thinks.
