RUSSIAN FOREIGN MINISTRY: Poland ‘ACTING LIKE ISIS’ in tearing down Soviet memorials

Russia’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman has compared Poland’s destruction of Soviet war memorials in the country to the ISIS destruction of the architecture and art of the ancient Hellenic city of Palmyra in Syria.

Days ago, Poland ordered the destruction of Soviet war memorials to commence after legislation approving the destruction easy sailed through the Polish legislature.

While Poland refused to consult with the Russian government or the families of the Soviet liberators, in a move which throws Poland’s geo-political priorities into the limelight, Poland did make a concession to Ukraine and Lithuania over controversial passport photos.

New Polish passports were to carry representations of historic Polish monuments as is increasingly customary in modern passports.

Among the images that raised eyebrows were those of the historic polish military cemetery in Lviv (present day Ukraine) and the Gate of Dawn in Vilnius (present day Lithuania). Ironically, the fact that neither city is in Poland is owed to the fact that after the Great Patriotic War, both formerly Polish cities were transferred to the Soviet Union. After 1991, the cities are now in the borders of post-Soviet Ukraine and post-Soviet Lithuania, whose modern borders both correspond to the internal map of Soviet republics.

It seems that Poland, along with modern Ukraine and Lithuania are happy to accept the legacy of the Soviet Union when it suits a specific agenda, but not when it involves paying tribute to the eternal memory of the Soviet soldiers who liberated Europe from fascism.

The fact that Poland both consulted and accepted proposals from Kiev and Vilnius over rather small matters, but refused to consult Moscow over a far more profound and insulting issues, is demonstrative of the fact the the destruction of Soviet memorials in Poland is a politically motivated act which Russia has called “barbaric”.

The destruction of Soviet war memorials continues throughout Poland.

If some Poles conveniently forget:
The German–Polish Non-Aggression Pact (German: Deutsch-polnischer Nichtangriffspakt; Polish: Polsko-niemiecki pakt o nieagresji) was an international treaty between Nazi Germany and the Second Polish Republic, signed on January 26, 1934….

History shows Poles were ineffective and disingenuous wheelers and dealers before WW2. They were liberated from total Nazi German Annihilation by Soviet Soldiers, yet cannot get over Jesuit Vatican programming to hate Russia irrationally. (That and jealousy of just how large Russia is compared to them.) The far-out Poles even wanted Colonies in Africa…lol

My grandmother and great uncle interned in forced labour Munition Factory. Others perished in Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp. Our country the Czech Lands (Moravia, Bohemia) were occupied and incorporated into Germany Proper. No one denied this, including the Nazis, and historians, except you. You need to STFU, and stop this verbal diarrhea. Sudeten Germans were expelled after the War. It was not morally correct, however it was revenge for the Nazi Occupation and to prevent further problems, down the road. I can imagine today, these Sudetens would of welcomed all the rape-fugees to Czech Republic, as per Merkel’s orders, just as… Read more »

Dennis Bernstein: Why did Trump go to Poland? What’s your overview?
And then let’s talk about what we understand might have happened.

Ronald Cox: Trump is essentially continuing in Poland what he’s
already doing in the United States. He’s extending militarization, and
support for those countries that are thoroughly militarizing their
economy, as well as political parties that are in favor of unleashing a
further militarization and policing of the domestic population, which
Trump approves of, not only at home but in a country like Poland.

Poland may have been liberated, but wasn’t it also invaded by both the Soviet Union and Germany to begin WWII (Molotov / Von Ribbentrop pact)? Perhaps these actions are not justified, but talking only about liberation and not the prior invasion seem a bit disingenuous.

Polaks attacked Russia before, they were occupying Moscow. Don’t you know it, my uneducated Polish friend? Russia just took the stolen land back. Polaks attacked my country (Czechoslovakia) as well. Fucking retards.

Poland only does publicly what most of the people reading or posting on sites like this think privately. Polish are eating and drinking from same trough as so many others. Hence the Bolsheviks were Jews who wished to destroy Russia, Stalin killed godzilions of Russians, Communism and Nazism are same and so on. I don’t have to list all the retarded things I heard and read. I am sure some on this site will be more than willing to fill it for me. Swill served by western historians and others on trough is eaten readily by so many on the… Read more »

Truths mixed with untruths, mixed with ludicrous assertions and generalizations.
