Poles prepare claims for restitution of Ukrainian lands

After Kiev had signed a European Union association agreement, Polish citizens prepared for bringing claims for the restitution of land in Lviv and Ternopil regions to the court.

According to the signed agreement, the land formerly owned by Poles should retire to their heirs, citizens of Poland.

There is no information about current owners of these lands - the Ukrainians.

Most likely, people will have to transfer their property for further Europeanisation of the country. At the same time, due to the poor state of the Ukrainian economy and corruption at all levels of the government, any compensation is hardly expected.
