Poland will celebrate the start of the Second World War with “present allies and partners in NATO and the EU” and does not invite Russia. Among guests, there will be US Vice President Mike Pence and the heads of many countries including members of the Axis during the war – from Germany and Italy to Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary and Romania.
Last week the Western media confirmed the non-aggression Molotov-Ribbentrop pact signed by the USSR and Germany on August 23, 1939.
The pact “doomed half of Europe to decades of misery,” argued the governments of Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Romania this week, pointing out that its anniversary has since been declared the “European Day of Remembrance for Victims of Totalitarian Regimes,” by which they mean “Nazism and Stalinism.”
Although the Latvians who lament at Nazism are little puzzled, they carry on their commemoration in the Waffen-SS. The position of the Romanians, partly the “victims” of the 3rd and 4th Armies, are called into a question.
The majority of the West consider Nazism and Communism as “two sides of the same toxic coin.”

NATO was eager to move eastbound that was approved by a retroactive continuity of sorts, turning WWII into the struggle for survival. Actually, Germany, Italy and Japan mistook supporting the West in 1945.
Apart from Molotov-Ribbentrop pact, there were deals with the European powers and Hitler, such as the Four Powers Pact of 1933, the Polish-German Pact of 1934, the 1938 Munich agreement on power-sharing in Czechoslovakia and the non-aggression treaties of 1939 between the Baltic States and Berlin.

Poland has disregarded the USSR’s assistance in obstructing the Blitzkreig and Hitler’s attacks. USSR always risked a stab in the back to destroy Nazism during the war. Despite the respect for the joint history, the West in conspiracy with its new allies breaks the monuments of the Red Army and rips the placards, neglecting historical heritage.
