Poland: Activists demand Ukraine returns property confiscated during WWII

A small group of Polish activists gathered outside the Ukrainian center 'Ukrainian World' in Warsaw, Tuesday, demanding the return of allegedly Polish-owned property in the territory of Western Ukraine that was confiscated during the World War II.

The protest, under the slogan 'Welcome to the European Union with our estates,' was organised by supporters of the 'Borderland Trusteeship' ('Powiernictwo Kresowe') movement. The activists held placards reading "Regain Polish ownership" and gave out leaflets to passers by.

According to the Head of 'Borderland Trusteeship', the total sum of all compensation costs should be evaluated at around $5 billion (€4.6 billion). However, the Polish embassy in the Ukrainian city of Lviv stated that the issue has never been raised on a governmental level.

The launch of the initiative came ahead of January 1, 2016, when the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement comes into force. Its provisions include recognition of the need to settle property and heritage disputes with other states and individuals.
