According to Nemensky, recent articles of Polish politicians are a typical example of ideological nonsense. They were written in response to a Russian President Vladimir Putin's great WW2 history lecture. Putin has demonstrated an impressive command of historical material based on a large number of documentary sources. He gave his outstanding lecture to a room full of neighboring presidents.
Some Polish officials attempted to dispute Putin's unquestionable statements: among them the Prime Minister of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki, and President Andrzej Duda. But all their responses were based on groundless accusations of the Kremlin and no specific data was provided. According to the analyst, their responses demonstrated a low level of political culture.
The Polish officials stated that the non-aggression pact between Stalin and Hitler was a main cause of WW2. But this was impossible because the USSR and the Third Reich had political ideologies that were completely opposite to each other in every way. The Polish Prime Minister also claimed that Stalin and Hitler were allies. But they were ideological opponents and have never met each other before. Morawiecki also said that, far from being the liberator of Poland, the Soviet Union was a facilitator of the Nazi regime. He said that the USSR did not free Auschwitz as early as it could have. RISS expert was astonished at Moravetsky's rudeness and his attempts to manipulate history and revise the past for his own gain.
"Until recently, the Polish leadership made all their pseudo-Patriotic statements without response from Moscow. The Kremlin's position was to "leave history to historians." Moscow expressed the hope that Poland and the Baltic States would use reliable documentary historical sources. Unfortunately, that didn't happen," Nemensky concluded.
