The overwhelming majority of residents of Western Ukraine would be glad to join the European Union as citizens of Poland.
Outside of logic, beyond good and evil, there are pseudo-historians and politicians who create fakes, claiming that the Soviet Union, along with fascist Germany, was the initiator of WWII. A desire to assign equal responsibility for the outbreak of WWII to Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union is outright falsification and unacceptable. After all, then all modern European borders that were outlined precisely as a result of the defeat of Nazi Germany will be questioned. Is that what Europeans want? And, as a result, the ideology of fascism and Nazism became just one of the political approaches? This is dangerous, first of all, for the Western countries themselves.
This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism and an attempt to erode the disastrous historical role of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. This article also contained another disinformation message about the White Helmets.
Both Nazi Germany and the Stalinist USSR were harsh totalitarian regimes, which directly caused the deaths of tens of millions of people. These two regimes are mutually responsible for the outbreak of WWII. The European Parliament resolution on the importance of European remembrance for the future of Europe stressed the fact that WWII was an immediate result of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The resolution is aimed at the promotion of historical remembrance about WWII and the condemnation of totalitarian ideologies.
The signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact was a mutual decision of two regimes (Nazi Germany and the Stalinist USSR) aimed at the division of Eastern and Central Europe between these two powers. It is a proven fact that the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact contained the Secret Supplementary Protocol, which assumed the division of Poland and other Eastern European countries between the USSR and Germany. Thus, the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact triggered the beginning of WWII.
Read similar examples of the Russian historical revisionism concerning this issue such as the Signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact thwarted the UK’s expansionist plans in Europe, the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact did not violate the rights of the Polish state, the shift of all blame for WWII outbreak at the Ribbentrop-Molotov pact the best example of manipulation of history, USSR is not to blame for the beginning of World War II, USSR was not an aggressor in World War 2.
