Russia accuses Poland of sparking world war 2 - June 16th 2009, 04:38 AM

Russia accuses Poland of sparking world war - Europe, World News - Independent.ie
Quote:
Russia has accused Poland of provoking the outbreak of the Second World War by refusing to accede to the "very modest" demands of Nazi Germany . The Russian defence ministry posted a potentially inflammatory essay on its website, claiming that Poland resisted Germany 's ultimatums in 1939 only because it "wanted to obtain the status of a great power". The lengthy diatribe also lashed out at Britain and France for giving the Poles "delusions of grandeur" by promising to intercede if the Nazis invaded. "Anyone who has been minded to study the history of the Second World War knows it started because of Poland's refusal to meet Germany's requests," the statement written by Colonel Sergei Kovalev , a senior researcher at the ministry, read. "The German demands were very modest." Appearing to take Germany's demands at face value, the defence ministry insisted that the Nazis were interested only in building transport links across the Polish Corridor to East Prussia and assuming control of Gdansk , which had been designated a free city. Western historians largely recognise that Poland would have lost its independence had it acceded to the demands, pointing to Hitler 's policies of Lebensbraum and the creation of a "Greater Germany" as evidence. Germany invaded Poland on September 1, 1939, prompting Britain and France to declare war. Poland's foreign ministry said it would summon the Russian ambassador to Warsaw to demand an explanation, as the allegations showed signs of triggering a row between the two countries. (© Daily Telegraph , London )
Poland had every right to resist Hitlers command but blaming them for Ww2 is crazy

My face when I read this news story:



Why do I feel like Russia WANTS to get in a fight with the entire Eastern block?


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I donít seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

Exactly. And considering the Poland was defeated in a day because their most advanced pieces of technology were a few bolt action rifles, I REALLY don't think they were in a position to say, "Bad Hitler, knock it off!"

I feel ashamed to say that I'm of Russian blood after reading that. And, as said above, it probably wouldn't have been brought up 70 years later unless they were trying to start something out of nothing. I'm curious about how Poland will respond. My guess would be that their response would be no response, but... you never know.

Well, they have form. And they'd probably win. So yes, you're probably right.
