The Western states are trying to question the status of Russia as a country which had won WWII. Western activities are aimed not only at the undermining the image and history of Russia, but also at the undermining the post-war world order, in which Russia has been the winner of WWII and a permanent member of the UN Security Council.
Poland may not have sufficient funds to finance the entire “sponger gang” of the institutions similar to the Polish Institute of National Remembrance, which researches why Poland should not take part in the celebrations of the anniversary of the WWII victory.
This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism. It accuses the Polish authorities and state institutions of “falsification and re-writing” its history and the alleged information war against Russia. According to this policy, the official Russian historiography is the only “true” way of interpreting historical events for the countries of Eastern and Central Europe.
The Polish Institute of National Remembrance (IPN) is a Polish government institution in charge of the prosecution, archives, education and lustration, in relation to crimes against the Polish nation. The IPN investigates Nazi and communist crimes committed between 1917 and 1990, documents its findings and disseminates them to the public.
The Russian authorities often accuse the Polish and Ukrainian Institutes of National Remembrance of historical falsifications and anti-Russian activities. See a similar case on how Poland and Ukraine established institutions to lie about history.
