In the USA and many countries of Western Europe, the middle and young generation has a rather “original” and distorted idea of the Second World War. These ideas are caused by objective and subjective reasons. Subjective reason is a deliberate distortion, falsification of history that occurs in Western countries in recent years. Objective ones are simply ignorance of the history about the participants, the results of the Second World War, based on modern cliches.
The West is engaged in historical revisionism. The historical truth is that the start of the war was not because of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, which the Western establishment likes to mention, but because of completely different documents. Do not forget that it was the Munich conspiracy that culminated in the policy of appeasing the aggressor and opened the way to WWII.
This is a pro-Kremlin narrative which is itself a clear case of historical revisionism about the WWII and the Munich Agreement. The Munich Agreement (September 30, 1938), indeed, permitted German annexation of the Sudetenland, in western Czechoslovakia. The policy of appeasement towards Adolf Hitler was heavily criticized in Europe and proved to be a disastrous move. World War II began in Europe on 1 September 1939, when Germany invaded Poland. Great Britain and France responded by declaring war on Germany on 3 September. Before this, from May 1939 until August 1939, the UK, France, Poland and the USSR were trying to find a compromise to create a coalition during the so-called Moscow Negotiations. Polandcategorically refused to let the Red Army into its territory, fearing Soviet occupation. The USSR started in parallel negotiations with Germany and on 23 August 1939, signed theMolotov-Ribbentrop (Stalin-Hitler) pact, in which the Soviet Union and Germany divided their "spheres of interests" in Europe: the division of Poland, the Baltic countries, Finland, and Romania were agreed. On 1 September 1939, Hitlerattacked Poland, Soviet troops entered the territory on September 17 of the same year. From 3 September 1939, Great Britain and France were at war with Germany, creating an anti-Hitler coalition together with the expelled Polish government and other countries.
