The Chairman of the Federation Council Commission on information policy sharply commented on the statement of head the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Poland Witold Waszczykowski that the USSR was the “instigator” of the Second world war.
Recall that Waszczykowski, commenting on the words of the Russian Ambassador Sergey Andreev that the country must preserve the monuments to Soviet soldiers, recalled that the USSR at the time, attacked Poland, as well as Germany, and this contributed to the outbreak of the Second world war. So Waszczykowski urged not to keep the history since 1945 with the liberation by the Soviet Union of Poland from the Nazis.
“No, Mr Waszczykowski. The beginning of the world need to lead from Munich, when the West gave up Czechoslovakia to Hitler, Poland snatched a piece from her”, — wrote Pushkov in Twitter.
We are talking about the so-called Munich agreement of 1938. When Prime Minister Chamberlain, French Premier Daladier on the one hand, and on the other, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini signed an agreement for the transfer of Germany the Sudetenland, part of Czechoslovakia. Then the Soviet Union expressed support of Czechoslovakia and Poland presented an ultimatum to Czechoslovakia and the day-to-day with the conclusion of the Munich agreement together with German troops sent troops in the Cieszyn region, where lived 80 thousand poles and 120 thousand Czechs.
