Kiev Cancels Military Parade

This story, in Russian, says that Kiev has canceled the military parade for Victory Day on May 9. May 8, however, will be celebrated as a day of remembrance and reconciliation. Will this remembrance include the Polish victims of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (also known by its Ukrainian/Russian acronym, UPA) in World War II? We shall see.
