Putin accuses Poland of colluding with Hitler

Speaking to military top brass and using bad language at one point, Putin said that Poland was in cahoots with Hitler during World War II.
"Essentially they colluded with Hitler. This is clear from documents, archival documents," Putin said in an emotional end-of-year speech at the defence ministry.
Resorting to bad language, Putin said a war-time Polish ambassador allegedly promised to put up a statue of Hitler in Warsaw for his pledges to send Jews to Africa.
“A bastard, an anti-Semitic pig, you cannot put it any other way,” Putin said, referring to what he said were the diaries of the Polish ambassador in Germany, apparently in reference to Józef Lipski, who served as ambassador in Berlin from 1934 to 1939.
“He expressed full solidarity with Hitler in his anti-Semitic views,” the Russian leader said.
 
In fairness to Putin, he has a point. Poland was a right-wing military dictatorship in the run-up to 1939 and Jozef Beck, the Foreign Minister, was the first European politician to propose a 'Final Solution' to Europe's Jewish problem.
 
Right. This from a country that was/is anti-semitic, encouraged the ethnic cleansing of the Crimea,Twice.
Signed a non-agression pact with Hitler, then didn't believe the intelligence given to him in 1940 by Churchill that, the Nazis were going to renege and, invade within a year ?

Putin is a sad, mobster, who is clueless about Russian history and, just continues a ridiculous propaganda war, to hoodwink the knobbers in Russia, that actually think he's doing it for them !

Maybe #KGB Resident would like to discuss Stalin's exile of the Tartars from the Crimea to Siberia,Khrushchev's resettlement back to the Crimea, then Putin's encouraging ethnic Russians to settle there after their retirement from the Armed Forces, to fiddle a vote for staying with Russia ?

He does seem somewhat angry that the statues of ‘liberators’ (who removed the occupying Germans and substituted them with Soviet occupiers) are being removed:

It is people like those who negotiated with Hitler — it is people like that who today are tearing down monuments to the liberating warriors, the Red Army soldiers who freed Europe and the European people from the Nazis,” Putin fumed

Little has changed and we should take this into account when we build our armed forces, among other things.

Of course, it’s an opportunity to brag:

Russia is developing state-of-the-art weapons and is no longer playing a game of catch-up with the West, Putin said.

“This is a unique situation in our modern history: they are playing catch-up with us,” he added.


He also seems upset about statements made about Russia recognising its past:

He once again lashed out at the European Parliament over a resolution it passed in September urging Russia to come to terms with its Stalinist totalitarian past, saying it had lacked the same scrutiny as Nazi crimes.

The Russian leader called this “complete nonsense,” saying it was wrong to equate Hitler’s Germany with the Soviet Union
.

At the weekend, Poland expressed “concern and disbelief” over recent statements by Putin and top Russian officials on World War II.

Warsaw criticized Moscow for “renewing Stalinist propaganda” and “wasting” reconciliation efforts to improve ties.


Seems it’s the standard ‘Russia as a victim’ excuse. It’s almost as though he’s trying to expunge the Molotov Ribbentrop Pact by rewriting history (again):

Last week, Putin blamed the Western powers and Poland for World War II, pointing to various treaties signed with Nazi Germany before the conflict began in 1939.
 

I dont think there was a Sikorski-Ribbentrop pact, just the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact so putin can suck a dog dick

Of course Becks idea was relocate them to Africa not murder them, slight difference

Their colonial ambitions thwarted, Polish officials turned to another strategy. They decided to use the idea of creating a Jewish colony on Madagascar as a way of "opening the door" to further colonial acquisitions.[7] The basis of Poland's hopes lay in comments that French Colonial Minister Marius Moutet had made in January 1937 concerning the possibility of sending France's Jews to many different locations around the world, all of which were French colonial holdings, including the island of Madagascar.[8]

Within weeks of hearing Moutet's comments, the Polish government initiated negotiations with the French to explore the possibility of sending Polish Jews to Madagascar. The French responded positively to the Poles and on 5 May 1937 a joint Polish-French Commission under the direction of Mieczyslaw B. Lepecki left Marseilles for Madagascar. During the weeks that the Lepecki Commission was in Madagascar, it studied several regions on the island to determine how many people could viably live there. The commission then returned to Europe and in October 1937 Lepecki published a 250 page report detailing his findings.[9] Lepecki's report concluded that the Madagascar solution was not feasible. Not only would the cost of transporting Jewish families be exorbitant (some 30,000 francs per family!), Lepecki concluded that the island could only support between 40,000 and 60,000 Polish-Jewish refugees. Polish Jewry alone comprised over three million people. Sending 60,000 Jews to Madagascar, therefore, would not solve the "Jewish problem" in Poland and it would bankrupt the state treasury.

The Polish "Madagascar Plan" was thus scrapped.
 

Read that earlier on dw.de Although it raises a valid point about complicit acts it doesn't let Stalin off the hook. The Poles didn't cause Stalin's pogroms, did they?
 
Putin has just got sand in his vagina over the soviet statues being pulled down.

I don't think that the average pole noticed too much difference between nazi and communist occupation.

I too think it is wrong for Stalin to be compared to Hitler.

Stalin murdered far more of his own citizens than Hitler did.

Hitler, although only a corporal managed to defeat far more countries or military formations than Stalin though.

Hitler started the second world war, will Putin start the third one?.

Poland is taking defence seriously, it is about time the Germans did.

The third decade on the twenty-first century is going to be a decade of high tension and military threats from both Russia and China.

Will peace still prevail on Christmas Day 2029?. Quite possibly not.

At least the communist threat to Britain was seen off at 22:00 hours on the 12th December.

Why does the midget that runs your country feel the need to make himself look silly like this?

That's because Stalin wiped out any military leader capable of leading anything more than a machine gun section early on.

He wasn't likely to win an investors in people plaque anytime soon.

Given what I've read about the Nazi occupation of Poland, I'm pretty sure anyone with experience of both did. Whatever else the Soviet Union was culpable for, the elimination of Poland as a nation and Poles as a people wasn't an express goal of theirs.

I covered that in my first point. :)
