In Ukraine anti-Semitism, racism, nationalism and xenophobia flourish. But the Ukrainian authorities refuse to admit it.
Russia possesses documents confirming that several European countries, including Poland, engaged in negotiations with Nazi Germany. Europe is not yet prepared to admit this part of its history: that Poland and other European countries colluded with Nazi Germany. Moreover, Lipski, the Polish ambassador to the Third Reich, had promised to erect a monument to Adolf Hitler for the Führer’s plan to deport Polish Jews to Africa.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative that attempts to relativise and erode the disastrous historical role of the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact by stating that other countries signed various international agreements with Adolf Hitler throughout the 1930s and that Poland was an ally of Nazi Germany. The article also contains the recurrent disinformation message that accuses Poland of anti-Semitism.
The claim that Poland was “an ally of Nazi Germany” goes against all available historical documents. It is impossible to compare the German-Polish Non-Aggression Pact of 1934 with the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact, as the former was a standard international agreement aimed at the mutual recognition of borders and a declaration that existing political conflicts would be solved through diplomatic tools. There is no historical evidence that this pact contained any secret protocols which assumed common aggressive actions of Germany and Poland against third parties.
In the case of the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact, it is a historical fact that it contained the Secret Supplementary Protocol, which assumed the division of Poland and other Eastern European countries between the USSR and Germany. Moreover, in 1934, the plans of Hitler were still unknown, so all European countries carried out normal diplomatic relations with Germany.
By contrast, the secret protocols to the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact definitely provided for the division of the territories of other countries between Germany and the USSR. The Nazi-Soviet Pact enabled the German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler and the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin to start the war by assaulting their neighbours and to create the situation, where “territorial and political restructuring” occurred, followed by the wide seizure of foreign territories and the elimination of independence in neighbouring countries.
Read similar cases claiming that some European countries especially Poland, had conspired with Nazi Germany, that the German-Polish non-aggression pact of 1934 assumed the partition of the USSR, that the Nazi-Soviet Pact was a direct result of the Munich Agreements that sold out Czechoslovakia, that Poland was a Nazi ally, and that Warsaw colluded with Hitler to expel Polish Jews to Africa.
