It is not surprising that the events dedicated to the Holocaust victims memory were not honoured by the presidents of Poland, Baltic countries, and Ukraine. Volodimir Zelenskyy came to Israel but did not go to the world forum to combat anti-Semitism. The point here is not only the long-standing anti-Semitism common in these countries. All these states are infected with Russophobia. They are trying to present the defeat of Nazi Germany as a simple change of one occupation to another – German to Soviet. The thesis of a “war on two fronts,” against the “two totalitarian regimes” unites Warsaw and Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn. Kyiv joined them as well.
It would be naive to believe that the Russophobic leaders of Poland, Baltic states and Ukraine independently decided to reconsider the results of the WWII. Americans are losing their positions of world hegemony. So, they do everything possible to portray the USSR in a negative way on the eve of the Victory Day. Therefore, US vassals started this humiliating and senseless fuss around the outcome and results of the war.
A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on “lost sovereignty”, Russophobia, and US presence in Europe. Pro-Kremlin outlets often allege that Poland, Baltic States or other European countries are US vassals and the Americans fully control their foreign policy. This message is also part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism.
On January 9, the Polish Parliament adopted the resolution “condemning the provocative and untrue statements by representatives of the highest authorities of the Russian Federation attempting to hold Poland liable for the WWII”. The Polish Parliament states that World War II was started by two totalitarian powers, which on 23 August 1939 signed the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The main goal of this resolution is to prevent Russia from hampering the historical dialogue between Russia and other nations.
