Polish PM says Russia’s version of WWII history is based on a lie

In an interview published on the 75th anniversary of the end of the war in Europe, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said Poland cannot accept a false version of history.

In a wide-ranging interview published in Italian daily La Stampa on Friday, Morawiecki referred to the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, an agreement between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union that opened the door to those countries invading Poland in 1939 at the start of World War II.

Morawiecki said that the pact became the basis for the USSR’s enslavement of Poland and the Baltic states.

He said that after the end of World War II, Poland had its independence taken away again.

He added that Poland regained independence only in 1989, after the collapse of communism in his country.

He warned that, at a time when other countries were vulnerable due to the coronavirus pandemic, Russia and China could try to break up alliances that guarantee Western security.

He also said that, in the fight against the pandemic, the international community should take into account the difficult situation of countries in southern Europe.

Meanwhile, Poland’s Institute of National Remembrance has lambasted what it described as “a new wave of efforts to cover up the traces of the Katyn crime by the authorities of present-day Russia.”

The protest followed the removal of two plaques commemorating the victims of the Katyn Massacre - the 1940 killing of some 22,000 Poles by the Soviets - from the building of the former regional headquarters of the NKVD, Stalin’s secret police, in the town of Tver, 180 km north-west of Moscow.

The British and US ambassadors in Warsaw on Friday paid tribute to Polish soldiers who fought on multiple fronts of World War II on the 75th anniversary of the end of the war in Europe.
