Russia condemns resolution of Polish Sejm on WWII

Polish parliamentarians once again demonstrate the triumph of ideology over historical truth by blaming Moscow for the outbreak of World War II, the representative of Russia’s MFA Maria Zakharova said. She commented on the resolution adopted by the Sejm (the lower house of Parliament) of Poland, RIA Novosti reports.

The authors of the document accuse the USSR of starting a war along with Nazi Germany. In their opinion, the non-aggression agreement, the so-called Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, led to the outbreak of war. Poland and other East European and Central European countries are therefore called victims of totalitarian regimes.

According to Zakharova, Warsaw decided to return to the time of the Inquisition, declare historical science "heresy" and accuse the proponents of facts of "witchcraft."

The Russian Foreign Ministry reminded of the Nuremberg Tribunal, which recorded the truth. If the deputies of the Sejm do not believe in the decisions of the tribunal, then they should state this. In this case, it will be considered an attempt to review the results of the Second World War.

State Duma deputy Dmitry Novikov is sure that the adopted document is clear evidence of the Sejm’s political bias. It is regrettable, he stated, that people are trying to rewrite history and do not pay attention to the facts. The deputy believes that this is happening for the sake of current political situation. The fact that Poland itself was hit hard by the aggression of Nazi Germany makes the situation even sadder.

Foreigners put blind trust in stories about Russian bears, nuclear threat and ubiquarian KGB agents. However, the list of the most convincing myths about Russia is topped by the one of Russian drinking. It turned out to be so strong and persistent that even the Russians have believed  it. It is not a mere coincidence that our fellow citizens think Russian people have always drunk, and a holiday  feast is considered to be a national tradition. Who made the whole world believe the banal stereotypes? Why do all historians claim the opposite and who benefits from the myth of Russian drinking?
