On Rewriting the History of the Second World War and Reviving Reparation Claims

The basic principles and terms of the reparation payments made by Germany and her allies were determined in 1945 at the Yalta and Potsdam conferences. For the USSR, the subject of German reparations was closed in 1953 when Moscow outright refused reparation deliveries from the German Democratic Republic and began paying for them at Comecon (Council for Mutual Economic Assistance) prices. Owing to the division of Germany and a number of other reasons, no general records were even set up for Germany’s fulfilment of its reparation obligations. Today, the German government does not have accurate information regarding its reparations and is using little more than certain expert estimates...

Heroizing UPA: Polish Government against Its Own People

On October 14, Petro Poroshenko signed a decree proclaiming October 14 to be the day of celebrating Day of Defender of Ukraine instead of the post-Soviet analogous holiday celebrated on February 23. This day the Ukrainian neo-Nazi traditionally march with torches to mark the anniversary of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army. The decision sparked a wave of indignation in Poland. Protests hit the streets, the demonstrators picketed the Ukraine’s diplomatic offices demanding to stop heroization of OUN-UPA that is responsible for killing thousands of Poles during WWII. Protesters marched in Przemyśl, Krakow, Wroclaw and Warsaw under the slogan «Lasting Shame to OUN – UPA Murderers from SS Division Galicia»...

Prospects for Ukraine’s Division: Poland Tries it Out

Poland's parliamentary speaker Radoslaw Sikorski has been quoted as saying that Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to Poland's then prime minister to divide Ukraine between themselves. Sikorski, who until September served as Poland's foreign minister, was quoted telling U.S. website Politico that Putin allegedly made the proposal during the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk's visit to Moscow in 2008 as one-to-one meeting took place... It looks like Sikorski made an attempt to test the general reaction to the idea of Ukraine’s partition and simultaneously add the issue of reshaping the borders to the international agenda. Sikorski is impudent enough to shift the blame on others as the Warsaw real intentions are ascribed to third parties...

Russian Victims of Polish Concentration Camps

The idea to erect a memorial in Krakow devoted to Red Army soldiers who lost their lives in Polish concentration camps sparked a scandal in Poland. The Russian Military Historical Society collected funds for a monument to commemorate the Red Army servicemen taken prisoner who died in a concentration camp located in Dąbie and were buried in common grave... The Society’s website says those willing to make a contribution can use the offered bank account. The same post says «Over 1, 2 thousand Red Army prisoners, the victims of the 1919-1921 Soviet-Polish war, are buried at the Krakow cemetery. The names are mainly unknown. Paying respect to their memory is the duty of their successors». Poland is outraged - the idea of erecting a memorial is seen as an attempt to «distort history» and «distract attention from Katyn»...

Polish Chasteners in Ukraine

A protest action against the participation of Polish soldiers and mercenaries in combat actions in Ukraine occurred on October 4 near the parliament building in Warsaw. Participants held flags of Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s republics. They carried placards with slogans: ‘«,Stop Bandera «Stop supporting Banderites. We remember Volyn!», «No to Polish soldiers participation in NATO military operation in Ukraine!»... The participation of Poles in the Ukrainian crisis has many aspects, including the training of nationalist militants, the participation of mercenaries hired by Polish private contractors in the combat actions in Donbass, the weapons supplies to the Ukraine’s regime and the formation of joint Polish-Lithuanian-Ukrainian brigade - LITPOLUKRBRIG...

The Polish-American Landmine under the Visegrad Group

Conflicts within the European Union are continuing to intensify, and one of the most successful regional projects in Europe – the Visegrad Group – is at risk... Rather than associating themselves with the policy of Brussels and Warsaw regarding Ukraine, Budapest, Prague and Bratislava are discussing the economy, calculating their losses as a result of anti-Russian sanctions, and even criticising the European Union. Warsaw’s dissatisfaction with the course of events is growing. A lengthy article published in the leading Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza on 19 September puts the question bluntly: why is the Visegrad Group not united in its condemnation of Russia, and why is it not hurrying to rally its members around Poland as the main defender of Ukraine? Hungarians, Czechs and Slovaks are accused of collective amnesia, what the newspaper calls exaggerated trade and economic links with Russia...

Poland Left Alone as Other Visegrad Group Members Oppose Sanctions Against Russia

Poland stands for broader sanctions imposed against Russia. The other Visegrad group (also known as the "Visegrad Four" or simply "V4" meaning) member-states - the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia - oppose this policy. It’s a bad sign for Poland. As a result, Poland is left alone inside the Visegrad group. Warsaw does not exclude the possibility of leaving the “V4”

Poland: Victim of Colonial ambitions

The emergence of contemporary Poland on the world map started with a military intervention. In March 1919 it attacked Russia devastated by the First World War and civil conflict. Having captured Kiev, Vilna and Minsk, Poland was not strong enough to go to Moscow and write on the Kremlin wall that speaking Russia was forbidden as Pilsudsky wanted... Poland saw itself as a great power, it dreamed of African colonies. It did not have enough «living space»... By the time Poland had internal colonies – Western Ukraine and Belarus. The occupied lands were subject to tough policy of colonization.  Poland was willingly cleansing East Kresy of foreigners: Jews, Belarusians.  Anti-Bolshevik sentiments gave rise to rampant anti-Semitism.  The authorities inspired Jewish pogroms. After Poland was occupied by Germany joint German-Polish patrols hunted for Jews... An impartial look at the past would no doubt stand the country’s elite of today a good stead as they proudly speak about the period between the two world wars...

Dragon Teeth to Be Planted All Over Europe Again

It’s an open secret that Adolf Hitler was connived at by the United States. The US penetration was significant and intensive, especially its cooperation with the German war industry. By 1993 the United States controlled key branches of Germany’s economy, as well as large banks such as Deutsche Bank, Dresdner Bank, Donut Bank etc.  Big business started to trust Hitler... British business also started to give donations to Fuhrer and his Nazi party... The new German government was treated extremely favorably by US and UK ruling circles... I will repeat that the Kiev junta is not in the same league with the Hitler’s regime. But, history proves that the ulcer of Nazism mixed with the poisonous substance of Russophobia grows rapidly, and sooner or later it will be on its own beyond the control of those who encouraged it...

Poland: Turn of History Through Camera Lenses

The documentary film True Story. Sharp Turn in Polish History by Radik Kudoyarov hit the silver screen five years after it was shot (Ren TV, August 2, 2014). A word said or a film shot never fade away without a trace. The current events related to the fascist junta coming to power in Ukraine and the sanctions the West imposed on Russia, which opposes the ulcer of Nazism and xenophobia emerged in the heart of Europe, as well as the unseemly role of Poland negatively affecting the situation, have made the story described by the filmmakers relevant again. The film is as acute as ever today, it has become even more important for understanding what is actually happening in Eastern Europe...

The Islamic State – America’s Double-Edged Sword

Serious experts are now in little doubt that the US administration was the ‘midwife’ of the Islamic State (IS). Renowned Israeli analyst and former head of the ultra-secretive intelligence agency Nativ, Jacob Kedmi, says that the US is now trying to use the tactic of setting moderate Islam against radical Islam, which was «successfully employed in Russia». It is not turning out well for the US, however, considering that for the last three years the Americans have acted as allies of the IS in Syria, and before that were allies of al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan... The war currently being carried out against the IS by the US Air Force is recognised to be for show and is more reminiscent of an arrangement of red flags, beyond which it is inadvisable to go...
