WARSAW, May 20. /TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has had a telephone conversation with Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski in which promised him to amend the law on the UPA (Ukrainian Insurgent Army) soldiers, Polish presidential spokesman Jaromir Sokolowski told reporters on Wednesday.

"The President of Ukraine has said that he will soon submit to the Verkhovna Rada [parliament] a bill to change the norms concerning responsibility for the violation of the law on the status of fighters for Ukraine’s independence in the 20th century," Sokolowski said.

Previously, the Polish president warned Ukraine against excessive glorification of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army and criticised the law recognising the Ukrainian Insurgent Army soldiers as fighters for independence as complicating the Polish-Ukrainian dialogue.

"The trouble of this law is that it complicates the Polish-Ukrainian historical dialogue," Komorowski said in an interview to the TVN24 channel. However, he did not dramatize the fact of the law adoption, because this issue is related to the past, not the actual relationship between the two states.

Ukraine and Poland intend to establish a working group of historians to discuss the contentious issues in Ukrainian-Polish relations of the 1939-1947 period.
