I meant, as I said, Lviv, is still largely Polish in its roots, traditions, culture and food
Aaah, that is much better. Without that, you sounded like a petty liar.
However, I would painlessly agree to roots and traditions. Culture and food are misleading. E..g. pierogis. Are they eaten in Lviv as a Polish dish or Ukrainian or Eastern Slavic in general??? :):):)
Besides, don`t forget about tourist industry!
you were last physically there?
In 1990s. That trip was enough to realise that Lviv had stopped being a Polish city after WW2. As for its roots.... You can say the same about a lot of Polish cities which once belonged to Germany. E..g, Wrocław - thousands of German roots there. Does it mean Vratislavians want to join Germany? :):):)
All in all, sorry, but you uttered a stupidity and hence this mockery now so you can only blame yourself. :):)
