Poland believes that the Ukrainian Insurgent Army nationalists committed genocide against Polish citizens of the Second Republic of Poland in 1939-1945. The violence culminated on July 11, 1943 — the so-called Volyn Massacre — when some 150 Polish settlements were attacked by the Ukrainians.

The Polish Senate, the parliament’s upper house, adopted the same resolution on July 8.
