  1. >The Nazi invasion of Poland came just a week after Hitler’s Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop and Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov had signed a non-aggression pact on 23 August 1939, which stunned the world.

    >A secret clause in the pact carved up Eastern Europe into Nazi and Soviet spheres of influence, allowing the two dictators – one fascist, the other communist – to occupy and dismantle Poland.

    These are statements of historical fact and, no matter how Putin tries to spin them, they can’t be undone — or even sugarcoated.

    > A row between Russia and EU countries over the causes of World War Two has escalated, with a top Russian official condemning the US ambassador to Poland.

    > Monday, 30 December: Besides the tweet by the US ambassador, Germany's ambassador to Poland – Rolf Nikel – also wades into the row, tweeting: "The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact served to prepare the criminal invasion of Nazi Germany against Poland. The USSR together with Germany participated in this brutal division of Poland.”

    > Earlier, Mr Putin had scorned Poland and Western powers for appeasing Hitler and had labelled Poland's ambassador to Berlin in the 1930s an "Anti-Semitic swine".

  3. Typical Russian bullshit. Deny reality and make up your own.

    It’s established history that the USSR and Nazi Germany were allies who split up Poland. The fact that they wanted to murder each other later is irrelevant.
