The Prosecutor asked the Governor of Lublin przemysław, Carnac, who believes that the President of the Ukrainian society during his speech compared the situation in Sagrini 1944 with the events in Volyn in 1943 and, as he said, Carnac, “equalized 130 thousand victims of the genocide of several hundred civilian Ukrainians killed in Sagrini 10 March 1944”.
