Ukraine will not enter Europe with Bandera – Polish MFA

Warsaw: Polish Foreign Minister Vitold Vashchikovsky said that Poland will veto potential Ukraine’s accession to the European Union if historical issues and minority rights issues are not resolved.

“Economic cooperation, unfortunately, does not look good. And worst of all, of course, are historical issues. Our message is very clear: (Ukraine – Ed) with Bandera in Europe will not enter. We talk about it loud and quiet. We will not repeat the mistakes of the 1990s, when there were certain problems in relations with Germany and Lithuania. I mean the status of the Polish minority in these countries. Having such experience, we will firmly demand from Ukraine that all matters be settled before Kyiv will stand at the gates of Europe with a request for membership, “he told wPolityce.

The Foreign Minister also noted that in case of resolving the issues a situation like the one that exists in Greece and Macedonia may arise. Because of Greece’s disagreement with the name of Macedonia, the latter cannot join NATO and begin negotiations on membership in the EU.
