German politicians accused the USSR of unleashing World War II


Recently, “historical clashes” between Poland and Russia over the Second World War have intensified. Yes, Moscow and Warsaw have different views on the causes of this terrible test, which claimed the lives of tens of millions of people. But now the side of Poland in this dispute was taken by Germany, or rather, some prominent German policy. What can this negative trend indicate?


It is no secret that Warsaw considers itself to be the solely injured party from the actions of the "aggressors" in the person of the Third Reich and the USSR. But the historical truth is that Poland was not "white and fluffy", and itself determined its sad fate in many ways. The British Prime Minister did not in vain call Poland "Hyena Europe." Before the start of World War II, Warsaw had a lot of territorial claims against neighboring countries and had a strong army, which, it seemed to her, would be enough to cope with the German.

In 1921, the Poles seized part of the territory of Germany itself in Upper Silesia, and to this day they are part of Poland. In 1938, a year before the attack of the Third Reich, under the guise of the Sudeten crisis, Polish troops took the Teszy region from Czechoslovakia. Remembering the Polish-Lithuanian Union, Warsaw claimed Vilnius (Vilnius) and fought with Lithuania in the 1922s. The Polish "vacationer" General Zheligovsky in XNUMX captured the Lithuanian capital and proclaimed the state of "Middle Lithuania", which became part of Poland and was there before the arrival of Soviet troops.

In general, Warsaw has no right to claim the status of an innocent victim, who was unjustly offended. Further, the fact that Poland long before the USSR in 1934 signed a non-aggression pact with the Third Reich adds to the question. The Polish authorities did not allow the Red Army to go to Europe to help Czechoslovakia. And they themselves turned Hitler against themselves, preventing him from building a transport corridor to East Prussia. The “cherry” on the cake is the approval expressed by the Polish ambassador in Berlin for Hitler’s idea to expel all Jews from Europe to Africa and an oral promise to erect a monument to him in Warsaw for this.

In jurisprudence, such a provocative behavior of the victim is called "victim." All these are historical facts that cannot be denied. However, German politicians spoke out in support of the Polish position and accused President Putin of rewriting history for them. Manfred Weber, head of the faction of the German European People’s Party in the European Parliament, said:

Every German politician should be responsible for the actions of our country. But every politician in Europe and beyond is also responsible for not playing with history. We cannot accept Putin’s attempt to rewrite history.


The German parliamentarian believes that Hitler’s attack on Poland was "the consequence of the signing of a non-aggression pact between the Soviet Union and Germany." In the same spirit of the inadmissibility of laying the blame on Poland itself for the outbreak of World War II, the representative of the Green group, the European Free Alliance, Reinhard Butikofer, spoke out.

What does this indicate?

There is a clear attempt to equalize the Third Reich and the USSR, sharing equally between them the responsibility for unleashing the Second World War. The logic is clear: if the Soviet Union is the "aggressor" and the Red Army is the occupier, then this is an occasion to review the results of the war. Our "European partners" may raise the question of reparations already from the Russian Federation as the legal successor of the USSR, as well as the legality of its territorial acquisitions. After that, Germany and Poland will be able to reconsider their attitude to the Kaliningrad region, and Japan - to the Kuril Islands.

    Here for sure, from a bad mind to a healthy one. These Germans must have become related with the Poles or the Balts. However, what's the difference.

    If they want a new war with Russia, they will receive, they won’t be happy ... No matter how later Russia had to give Hokkaido and Danzig ... or there’s nothing left from Europe ... than to lower the flag, like the USSR and die for nothing, it’s better to smack they should, including nuclear weapons ... let them wash their blood, vagabonds ... not all of them drown Russia in blood and starve, does not bother to slurp it themselves ...

        These are the highlanders that Turkey had as they wanted? So Russia has repeatedly had Turkey, and in Chechnya and Ossetia defeated the Highlanders along with their Arab, Ukrainian, Azerbaijani and NATO allies ...

    In 1939 it was they who thought that STALIN was outplayed with this treaty. But in reality it turned out that Stalin made them. He delayed the war for two years, and even grew in territory! They still can’t forget. Monuments throughout Europe were demolished, now they have taken up HISTORY. And put their brains in a row SOME !?

    But didn’t Germany and the USSR divide Europe among themselves and together disassemble it into regiments? Having determined the spheres of influence of the Parties, in fact there was a seizure of the whole of Europe between the two Contracting Parties, and if this did not start the 2MB, what would it mean?

      The USSR only returned its territories, which it rightfully owned, which Poland rejected in 1920, crossing the Curzon line, which determined the borders following the WWII between Russia and Poland.

    A new round in history has begun. Sponsored people start shouting that they were offended, then, using sponsorship funds from across the strait and the ocean, they will climb into the fray for Russia for living space, get it 2x1m in size, the sponsors will hit the money and, as always, sit over the ocean and the strait. The Lend-Lease has already ended, payments are not being received by the Fed, and we went on a new round to fool the fools. There is a good song about this by Cota Basilio and Alisa Lisa from the movie about Pinocchio "About greedy, bouncers and fools."

    Germany now and before WWII is a humiliated side, and from which significant territories have been taken. The Poles simply do not understand that a revision of the WWII results will allow Germany to return those territories that have been transferred to Poland, the Czech Republic, etc.

    German politicians accused the USSR of unleashing World War II

    There is a share of logic in this. If Hitler had not attacked the USSR, a world war would not have begun. And now a united Europe would not be in the form of the European Union, but in the form of a third Reich, which the Germans would certainly be more pleasant. But there is a small wormhole in this logic - it was not the USSR that attacked Germany, but quite the opposite. And the capture of the territories of the USSR was in Hitler's plans initially, and the minor episode with Poland and the pact did not have any significance in these plans.

      So Hitler did not hide the fact that the well-being of the Germans and their lands for the German paradise are in the East in Russia, and therefore attacked suddenly, violating the friendship agreement.
      Stalin knew that Hitler would attack the USSR and was preparing, but the country was not yet ready for war, so he, after the betrayal of the countries of the former Entente (France and England), which concluded the Munich Agreement with Hitler, and the conclusion of friendship treaties with other countries of Europe with Hitler , including Poland, and in connection with the aggressive behavior of Poland, which was preparing together with the Germans to start a war with the USSR, was also forced to conclude a peace agreement with Germany.
      So, in the outbreak of World War II, the TRAINING compromising behavior of France, England and the countries of Europe, the provocative behavior of Poland and the conquering plans of the German military played their role in the first place ...
      And the USSR became a hostage to the HATE of the capitalist countries towards a more advanced communist system of life for people and the state, the rapid growth of the Stalinist socialist economy and the real growth in the welfare of USSR citizens.

    The culprits of the Second World War are determined by the Nuremberg International Tribunal and are not subject to review. After the fight, they don’t wave their fists. And the countries in which the decisions of the Nuremberg Tribunal are questioned awaits the fate of Nazi Germany.

    The Germans were driven, like hacky dogs, from Moscow to Berlin, smoking on the road from all the cracks in which they entrenched themselves.

    Yes, look who is blaming Russia! Manfred Weber, the party of greens, these are those who feed from the funds of Soros !!! And for the Germans themselves - who knows a little about politics, it is beneficial that Poland be declared the aggressor for the Munich agreement and the seizure of the lands of Czechoslovakia. Then it turns out that Poland unleashed the Second World War. It is possible to raise the question of the return of Germany to its lands, since Poland was an aggressor and it was not supposed to.

    Where were the fathers and grandfathers of these "German politicians" in 1941? For some reason, I’m sure that it’s not in the anti-fascist underground. The desire of Germany to take revenge for the defeat in 1945, becomes the obsession of the Germans. If there had been no foreign troops on its territory, there would hardly have been peace in Europe today. It is a pity that these troops are not ours.

    Why did Stalin make Poland an independent state?
    This is Russian land, because it was conquered from Nazi Germany, and previously was part of the Russian Empire.
    The Poles must return our Russian land, and let them bring it down to their UK, because it was there that the Polish government moved after the defeat and conquest of Poland by the Germans.
    Stalin made a big mistake with Poland ...

    Fact:

    On October 24, 1938, Berlin proposed Warsaw an alliance and a “global solution” of controversial issues: the construction of an extraterritorial motorway through the Polish Pomerania to German East Prussia, the accession of the Free City of Danzig to the Reich, and Poland’s entry into the anti-Comintern pact against the Soviet Union. Poland rejected the proposal.

    Conclusion:

    Poland never had the slightest desire to enter into an alliance with Germany against the USSR, just as she did not intend, however, to participate in the anti-German bloc on the side of the Soviet Union. At the same time, Poland was almost more afraid of the ally represented by the USSR than the enemy represented by Germany. As it turned out after 1939, this was reasonable: According to the experience of the Baltic countries, when Soviet troops came under the guise of allies, they usually remained as occupiers.
