Bobko 2 | 56 29 Mar 2017 #1In recent months, there have been several hard "bumps" in the usually friendly relations between post-Communist Poland and Ukraine.A quick search brings up a mass of recent events, like:An RPG attack on the Polish Consulate in Lutskpolitico.eu/article/polish-consulate-in-ukraine-attacked-with-grenade-launcher/Ukraine banning entry into the country to the mayor of Przemysl, after comments he made in Lviv re: the Volhynian massacre112.international/ukraine-top-news/poland-threatens-ukraine-with-serious-consequences-for-przemysl-mayor-entry-ban-13431.htmlThe Sejm voting to qualify the Volyn massacre as a genocide (to great irritation in official Kiev)rferl.org/a/poland-parliament-declares-volyn-massacres-/27874252.htmlI can continue the list with more local incidents involving private citizens, but in general it seems that not all is well under the surface.Ukraine views Poland as its greatest ally inside the EU, and as a valuable counterweight to Russian domination. It would be curious to hear a Polish perspective on where they think these relations are going, and whether or not Ukraine's perspective is objective or delusional. Is Ukraine just a pawn that Poland needs for poking Russia in the ribs, or is there more substance to the relationship?small edit: Ukraine is chalking up the attack on the consulate, and other incidents to Russian provocations. It doesn't seem far-fetched that Russians could be trying to destabilize the friendship between Ukraine and Poland. Thoughts?
