LUTSK, Ukraine, July 14 (Itar-Tass) - A young man who tried to hurl eggs at Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski during his visit to Ukraine’s Lutsk was detained, the press service of the Ukrainian interior ministry’s Volyn department said on Sunday.
“When the Polish president came up to speak with a group people waiting for him after a mass, a young man clapped him on the shoulder with a hand with a crushed egg in it,” the press service said. “The police detained the man and took him to be examined at a dependency clinic. His blood samples proved alcohol negative.”
A criminal case was instituted on hooliganism charges. The man might face a fine of up to 50 minimal wages or a prison term of from six months to three years.
The Polish president arrived in Ukraine to take part in commemorative events dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Volyn tragedy.
The Volyn tragedy (the Volyn massacre) of 1943 was a conflict accompanied by mass murder of ethnic Polish civilians on the territories of the Volyn-Podillia General District, which was under the control of Poland until September 1939. The conflict began in March 1943 and reached its peak in July of the same year. The response from the Polish side started at the end of summer 1943, resulting in significant casualties among Ukrainian civilians. Ethnic cleansing stopped only after these territories were taken by the Red Army in 1944. The Volyn tragedy claimed about 100,000 human lives.
