Polish authorities refused to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Warsaw from the Nazis

The celebration of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Warsaw from the Nazis will be limited to two street events organized by private individuals in order to mark this date.

This statement was made by the press service of the Polish capital. The city hall also explained that in Warsaw, for a long time, the Liberation Day of the city is not an official holiday.

The participation of Warsaw City Hall officials in events in honor of this day will be limited to laying flowers at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on January 17, organized by the Union of Polish Army soldiers.

According to the German political scientist Alexander Rahr, Poland’s desire to take revenge on Russia is due to the fact that after the victory in the Great Patriotic War, the Soviet Union controlled Poland for 45 years in its zone of influence.

The political scientist believes that this offense is also due to the appearance of a narrative that Stalin defeated Hitler, but seized part of Eastern Europe and created his Soviet dictatorship there.

Alexander Rar also noted that Poland appreciated the image of the “eternal sacrifice”, which helps to receive various bonuses in the international arena.

Recall that the day of the liberation of Warsaw is January 17, when during the Warsaw-Poznan offensive operation (January 14-17, 1945), the Polish capital was liberated by Soviet troops.

    And it is right. Organize a barbecue in nature, drink beer. This, from the point of view of the Poles, is probably enough to celebrate the liberation of the Polish capital from slavery and destruction. Apparently, the Poles do not consider their salvation from death a holiday. Well, Karma may take note of this next time and take the alternative path ...

      Well, it’s like any holiday goes like this,

      Organize a barbecue in nature, drink beer.

      But only after the official part, but in the light of the situation and political necessity, the official part can be abolished or postponed until the “right” times.
      How was Victory Day celebrated in the nineties? Yes, and the next ... years in almost nothing, it is a fact.

    - Yes, what do we care about this bullshit "pansky" Poland ...
    - Why does Russia constantly show how it was offended and how ungrateful it is, and how it is not respected ??? Why doesn’t he take any action in response ??? -Only indignation and lamentation ... -Why Russia will not do anything at the diplomatic level ... -Why will it not call the Polish ambassador to the diplomatic mission and will not give a note of protest ??? - Why not send a number of Polish representatives to Poland ??? - Moreover ... -Poles "sit" on the channels of Russian TV and easily spread everything about Russia that they think about Russia ... -And our things told them that it’s wrong, that it’s so bad that they’re wrong and etc ... -Well, cinema ...- and only ... - What is going on .. ???
    - Russia is completely independent of Poland ...- no sideways ... -So why then .....
    - Moreover ... if Russia even temporarily breaks relations with Poland, then ... then ... then ... then Germany will very soon begin to claim Poland the rights to its former territory ...
    - Yes, very soon it will start ... - and where then will Poland run for support and protection ???
    - To the Americans ??? - Yes, they need Poland, if they need a little bit, it’s only for their specific specific goals ... - And all these goals are in the East .. and not in the West ... - And the Americans absolutely don’t care what that’s where the Germans want to regain the lands of Poland ...
    - And the Americans will never harness on Poland in this matter ... - So, Poland will itself decide this issue with the Germans ... - And again, "there will be a reason" who to "remember" and who to ask for support ...
    - But these are their problems ... -Poles problems ...

    So did the Polish authorities refuse to celebrate or were they not allowed? Maybe they wanted to, but they were told: “Niz-zi-za,” because it is not tolerant, not politically correct, does not fit into common European values, will representatives of LGBT people and other sodomites be offended?
