Warsaw not to disclose list of Ukrainians banned from entering Poland
Poland will not disclose a list of persons banned from entering the country, and this list does not contain a great number of surnames, Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski has said.
"We do not disclose the surnames and number of people, and the sphere this concerns," Polish news site Onet.pl quoted Waszczykowski as saying in an interview with Dziennik Gazeta Prawna.
When asked to comment on a ban on the entry into Poland for Head of the Ukrainian National Remembrance Institute Volodymyr Viatrovych, he said that "this is a person who promotes deeply anti-human, anti-European values."
Waszczykowski said that the list of persons banned from entering Poland is "short".This demonstrates our far-sighted understanding of the views of the Ukrainian side, determination in the search for a path of progress in relations and unwillingness to further escalation," he said.
"We do not report who and how many people, and what spheres it concerns," said Vaschykovsky, adding that the ban would apply to individuals who promote anti-humanitarian and anti-European values.
The Foreign Minister said that the ban would not contradict the Schengen rules on the entry of third-country nationals into the EU.
We will remind that recently Witold Waszczykowski said that Poland will introduce "black lists" of Ukrainians who "wear uniforms of SS Galychyna", or impede the administrative execution of exhumations of Polish burial grounds in Ukraine.
