Poland has protested a photo exhibition by a Ukrainian fashion magazine featuring models posing next to graves of Polish World War I soldiers in Ukraine.

The photographs, displayed at a museum last week, showed women striking provocative poses next to a bare-chested young man and against the backdrop of crosses at a cemetery in the western city of Lviv.

Poland's Foreign Ministry said its diplomats in Lviv protested "the impropriety of the exhibition, which could hurt feelings and provoke controversy" and had the exhibit closed, according to international media.
