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.

      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 look more closely in this Polish-German "conscious direction", you will immediately notice the aggressive orientation of the Poland-Germany bloc! The Polish authorities did not even hide their dream of a joint with Hitler, "Marching 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 come to an agreement with the British and French about a joint opposition to Hitler's expansion in Europe, convinced of their incapacity and the obvious push of Germany in Drang nach Osten, the last, after the Angles and Franks, Danes and Swedes, all Baltic limitrophes, concluded the non-aggression pact with Germany barely had time, when the Nazis were already fully prepared for an attack on Poland (and there, after all, beyond Poland, on the way of the Hitlerite Wehrmacht, there were already USSR borders, and without this Non-Aggression Pact the Germans would have stopped or practically with would have attacked - who could have known that then ?!), his recent ally (who was too much in greed, it was not for nothing that W. Churchill gave the Polish authorities such an unflattering characterization!) for the joint aggression against Czechoslovakia and its division!

    It is interesting that in the days of the beginning of the German aggression against Poland, the Polish leader Rydz-Smigla (the one who persuaded Hitler to a joint attack on the USSR!) 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 an epoch-making picture of "the victorious parade of Polish troops in Berlin", not in the least doubting the imminent victory of a stronger Polish army over Germany!
    And the Polish residents, not in the least doubting their victory, on the same days brutally killed their fellow citizens-ethnic Germans and looted their property (Bromberg and Schulitz is an example of this, not an isolated example!) ... the same they later, again making friends with the Nazis , they did with their fellow citizens-Jews, Ukrainians and Belarusians, and then with the German population of the German territory given by Stalin to Poland - so that Poland has a monstrously many "skeletons in the closet"!
    This is even without tens of thousands of Red Army prisoners and internees brutally tortured by the Poles in the 20s, in the same Polish concentration camps, White Guards with their families - also a very unsightly story turned out, about which in the Soviet Union after the Great Patriotic War, during the Warsaw Pact, they tried to be silent and not to remember, as well as about other pre-war anti-Soviet Polish inclinations .... and it’s what happened, sideways to all of us - amerskaya mongrel - Poland from impunity and Soviet allied "unconsciousness" now completely lost its shores in its unfounded claims (donated to them Stalin turned out to be not enough for almost all of East Prussia and Przemysl, now the Poles are going to Kaliningrad and the Baltic ?! fool ) ?!

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

      In any (including international) treaties, there are some nuances that are reflected in written attachments (or oral proposals - behind-the-scenes agreements not recorded in documents and not certified with the appropriate signatures and seals - we were "mentally told" about such), rolling eyes into otrozhrat cheeks, from the "indignation", "satisfied with the ruins of the Soviet Union" Tagged with Shevardnadze, they say, they allegedly "agreed on one thing", and they were allegedly "deceived" for free ??! fool ). The Pilsudski-Hitler Pact, I am sure, also had some nuances, but now it is unprofitable for the Polish side to advertise them in the "role of a sufferer for nothing" that has been played for decades ?!
      Even if we take on faith that the “secret protocols to the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact” that "suddenly surfaced" under the Gorbachevites are not a fake, then the zones of delimitation between the USSR and Germany are for some reason different from reality - for example, Warsaw should have been also ours - how do the Polish "partners" explain this to themselves ??! winked

      In general, of course, the Polish authorities are short-sighted, politically and historically, (apparently, they stupidly stuck out in their protracted amerocholuystvo, like the famous Ukrainian lieutenant colonel in the Crimea in March 2014 - "America is with us!" ??!), Pedaling the anti-Russian campaign with "twisting stories ", and even having so many" skeletons in their 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, by its participation in the Munich Agreement, is no less to blame for the beginning of the war than Germany. It was the Munich Agreement that served as the "trigger" of the Second World War, with the active participation of Poland.
