Russian historical propaganda regarding WWII is an unworthy lie and a deceitful attempt to blame others for the Soviet Union's actions, Polish PM Mateusz Morawiecki wrote in his article published by the Politico website.
The Polish PM pointed out that on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp, Russia is trying to rewrite history.
“Far from being "liberator," the Soviet Union was a facilitator of Nazi Germany and a perpetrator of crimes of its own — before and after the liberation of Auschwitz,” PM Morawiecki wrote.
He stressed that for Central and Eastern Europe, the fall of the Third Reich had not brought peace, but, in fact, new forms of terror and incorporation into the Soviet zone of influence.
The Polish PM stated that this narrative is currently being applied by Russian authorities, as the country “attempts to burden Poland and other European countries with responsibility for cooperation with German dictator Adolf Hitler.”
Mateusz Morawiecki also mentions numerous neglections by Vladimir Putin regarding the history of the Soviet Union and its atrocities towards not only others, but also its own nations.
“The truth about WWII and the fate of Central and Eastern Europe is an integral part of Europe's tragic heritage. That's why a united Europe must forcefully oppose the falsification of 20th century history,” PM Mateusz Morawiecki stated.
