Russia collaborated with Germany in 1939 to divide Europe | Military Mind Special
– TVP World
The Soviet invasion of Poland on September 17, 1939, was a direct result of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact signed by the USSR and Nazi Germany – something that should be kept in mind whenever Putin’s Russia talks of “de-Nazifying” Ukraine, while sprucing up its brutal invasion of the country with vainglorious narratives of distorted past.

On September 17, 1939, the world witnessed the dreadful fulfilment of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact signed between Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia in Moscow on August 23, 1939. Containing a secret protocol that divided Eastern Europe between the signatories, the eastern part of Poland fell within the areas assigned to the USSR in the pact.

Today, Russia employs the same old tactics it resorted to when reaching out its greedy hand for the territory of Eastern European countries. Sham referendums, mass deportations, slavery or a quick execution in a forest – all of this sounds too familiar.

While alleging that Ukraine needs “deNazification”, and making good on its twisted scheme by invading the peaceful country, Moscow hates to be reminded that it became the greatest collaborator with the Nazis in its time.

Remember, history does rhyme, and the lessons are there to see.

As yet another Russian crime in Ukraine is unearthed, this time in Izium, Poland commemorates the heinous Soviet invasion that took place 83 years ago, on September 17, 1939. Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Russia realised its part of a secret protocol signed along with the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact – a non-aggression pact between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union – that led to the partition of Poland.

On the fateful morning of September 17, 1939, Soviet foreign minister Vyacheslav Molotov – the man who, together with Nazi Germany’s foreign minister Joachim von Ribbentrop, paved the way for the calamities to come – met Wacław Grzybowski, the Polish Ambassador in Moscow to suggest, in a preconceived and deliberate way, that the Polish Government ceased to operate as a result of the German invasion of September 1, 1939….

Although the secret protocol of the pact bound the Soviet Union to attack Poland as soon as Nazi Germany did, in his strategic and political acumen Joseph Stalin decided to lay in wait to see if a war would ensue between Nazi Germany, France and the UK. When Hitler started a war with Poland, Stalin said he was not ready yet and waited. Even as Britain and France declared war on the Third Reich, Stalin was still taking his time. It was only when German soldiers occupied Warsaw and entered Lviv and Brest, that he decided to move in, fearing that they would take over all of Poland, leaving him with no territorial gains…
