The Polish memorial where participants of Polish-Ukrainian war of 1918-1920 are buried, mostly those who were killed during Ukrainian November Uprising in 1918. During the years of restoration of this cemetery it became a subject of hot discussions, political speculations on the all levels of Polish and Ukrainian political and public life and of disagreements of radically focused persons on the both sides of the border. Polish nationalists are unhappy of the temps of restoration works and the proposed slogans on the graves, their Ukrainian “colleagues” are furious of the single fact that this cemetery is restored. The effect of the “Cemetery War” is quite distinctive mostly during bilateral Polish-Ukrainian meetings and conferences.
