Poland Russia


Too freaking bad.

If it were up to me, I’d remove them all. If Germany hadn’t attacked the Soviets, the Russians would have stood by as the Nazis enslaved the entirety of Europe already carved up by the two evil socialist twins, as well as helping with the extermination of the Jews.

Russia outraged by Poland’s removal of Soviet war memorial

MOSCOW/WARSAW (Reuters) – Russia said on Saturday it was outraged by Poland’s destruction of a Soviet war monument, warning Warsaw of the “most negative consequences” after what it said was a flagrant violation of an agreement between the two countries on protecting memorial sites.

Poland has been one of the most vocal critics of Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula in 2014. Russia and Poland share a history of conflicts and the disagreement over war memorials is likely to add to tensions.

“Warsaw must finally understand that the ‘war of monuments’ unleashed in Poland may have the most negative consequences, for which the responsibility lies squarely with its initiators,” the Russian foreign ministry said in a statement.

  1. Much smaller Estonia did the same thing by removing a statue of a Soviet soldier from a prominent traffic island i Tallinn.
