Poland responded to Germany over Berlin guilt at the start of World War II

The press service of the Polish Foreign Ministry commented on the statement by German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and German historian Professor Andreas Wirsching that Germany alone was guilty of unleashing the Second World War.

Berlin's sole blame at the start of the war is a simplification of the events of those years with the goal of showing Hitler the main culprit of the global fire, but not an attempt to open political and the historical background of what happened

- quoted by the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland, the agency RBC.

Poles also call not to forget about the “guilt” of Russia at the beginning of the war. Indeed, as some Polish “experts” believe, if there hadn’t been for the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, concluded on August 23, 1939, and its secret protocols, the war would not have started. The Stalinist USSR and Nazi Germany are guilty of dividing Europe into spheres of influence, which ultimately resulted in a clash of these powers with each other and led to a world war.

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, previously emphasized that the statements of the German side on the sole responsibility of Germany draw a line under disputes regarding the guilt of a country in starting a war, as well as attempts by some politicians to distort its results.

  1. Poles! WWII was unleashed by YOU by attacking a German radio station in Gleiwitz! And do not deny - Dr. Goebbels himself said this!

      Bravo, Robot! Or you need to believe Goebbels that the Poles attacked the radio station in Gleivitz and unleashed World War 2, and the Soviets shot Polish officers, or did not believe him in anything! And then - here I believe, here I do not believe! - will not pass!

    The Polish authorities are very interested in continuing to shift the blame for the beginning of World War II to the Soviet Union!
    Since otherwise the automatic question arises of Polish-German allied relations and the Pilsudski-Hitler Pact in 1934, from which the flame of war in Europe began to swell!
    And if you take a closer look at this Polish-German "conscious direction", the aggressive orientation of the Poland-Germany bloc will immediately become visible! The Polish authorities did not hide their dream of a joint campaign with Hitler, "Campaign to the East, to Soviet Russia (as our Soviet Union was often called in the West!)"!
    We must not forget that the Polish army was then one of the most powerful in Europe!
    The USSR, desperate to agree with the British and French on joint opposition to Hitler’s expansion in Europe, making sure of their lack of maturity and the explicit pushing of Germany to Drang nah Osten, the most recent, after after the Angles and Francs, Danes and Swedes, all the Baltic Limitrophs, concluded the nonaggression pact with Germany barely succeeded when the Nazis had fully prepared for an attack on Poland (and after all, beyond Poland, on the path of the Nazi Wehrmacht, there were already USSR borders, and without this Nonaggression Pact on thanes Germans had little or on the move was attacked by would - who could know it then ?!), a recent ally (high-handed greed, not without reason that Winston Churchill gave the Polish authorities such unflattering characterization) for joint aggression against Czechoslovakia and it list!

    Interestingly, in the days of the beginning of the German aggression against Poland, the Polish leader Rydz-Smigly (the one who persuaded Hitler to attack the USSR together!) Found a lot of time for idle posing, riding on a bench with a horse saddle, against the background of the image of Berlin-for the epoch-making picture of the “victory parade of the Polish troops in Berlin”, not at all doubting the imminent victory of the stronger Polish army over Germany!
    And the Polish inhabitants, not at all doubting their victory, these days brutally killed their fellow ethnic Germans and looted their property (Bromberg and Schulitze are not an isolated example!) .... the same later, again making friends with the Nazis , they did with their fellow Jews, Ukrainians and Belarusians, and then with the German population, the German territory given to Stalin by Poland - so Poland has a monstrous amount of “its skeletons in the closet”!
    Even without the brutally tortured by the Poles in the 20s, tens of thousands of captured Red Army soldiers and interned, in the same Polish concentration camps, White Guards with their families - this is also a very ugly story, which the Soviet Union tried to do after the Great Patriotic War, during the Warsaw Treaty keep silent and not remember, as well as about other pre-war anti-Soviet Polish trepidations .... but it won’t happen to all of us - Amer’s mongrel - Poland from impunity and Soviet allied "unconsciousness" is now e shore lost in their unfounded claims (he presented to Stalin, virtually all of Eastern Prussia and Przemysl was not enough, now on Kaliningrad with the Baltic Poles zazihayut ?! fool ) ?!

      And I don’t agree with Katyn, with this annual anti-Soviet-anti-Russian "Sabbath" of all Russophobic evil spirits - I don’t understand why the Russian authorities had to take over and repent for the German provocation with Polish prisoners of war ??!
      After all, during the war it was in the hands of the Nazis and the Anglo-Saxons (both of them benefited from the departure to Iran and Africa of the British, assembled, armed and equipped, the Polish army of General Anders, intended for operations on the Eastern Front at the very a difficult time for us when the fate of our Motherland-USSR was being decided!), mutually anti-Bolshevik-minded (IMHO - if Hitler hadn’t been so afraid of the attack of his presumptuous ally of Poland, because of which he attacked first, and got into a war with France and England , then all this anti-Bolshevik schoble but, including Poland in the forefront, without any disagreement, it would jointly attack the "Bolshevik Soviet Russia" - our USSR, and the USA, Canada, and other countries would help them ... ??!)!
      But, thank God that these mischievous creatures quarreled with each other and they did not succeed in a single anti-Soviet bloc, the intractable rival aggressors Hitler and Rydz-Smigly could not agree which of them is alpha male and "right has" and which ... oops, the beast is trembling "!!! wink

      In any (including international) agreements, there are some nuances that are reflected in written annexes (or oral sentences - behind-the-scenes agreements not recorded in documents and not certified by the corresponding signatures and seals - they were "sincerely told" to us, rolling their eyes over their cheeks, from the "indignation" made, "satisfied with the ruins of the Soviet Union" Tagged with Shevardnadze supposedly they "agreed on one thing", and they were supposedly "cheated" for free ??! fool ) I am sure that there were some nuances in the Pilsudski-Hitler Pact, too, but now it’s unprofitable to publicize the Polish side with decades of “playing the role of the sufferer for nothing” ?!
      Even if we take it on faith that the “secret protocols to the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact” that surfaced by the Gorbachevites were not fake, then for some reason the demarcation zones between the USSR and Germany are different from the real ones - for example, Warsaw should have been also ours - how do Polish "partners" explain this to themselves ??! winked

      In general, of course, short-sighted, politically and historically, the Polish authorities act (apparently, they have stupidly become stupid in their protracted austerity, like the famous Ukrainian lieutenant colonel in Crimea in March 2014 - "America with us!" ??!), Pedaling the anti-Russian campaign with "juggling" stories, "and even having so many" skeletons in your closet. "
      After all, there were Poles in the Russian Empire and should have well remembered our Russian proverb:

      Do not be dashing while it is quiet!

    Interestingly, the Psheks did not forget how they shared Czechoslovakia with Germany?

    That's right!
    Poland, with its participation in the Munich agreement, is no less guilty of Germany than the outbreak of war. It was the Munich conspiracy that served as the “trigger” of World War II, with the active participation of Poland.
