Bad enough the Nazi's in Kiev are in on this falsification of History -the xenophobic Polish Parliament are going revisionist too.

Don't worry, Dail Eireann may possibly go along with such a declaration in time.

27,000,000 million people from the USSR who died in WWII obviously died in vain.

The Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's Parliament, has approved a document called the Declaration of Memory and Solidarity of the Parliaments of Ukraine, Poland, and Lithuania, in which, amongst other things, it states that the USSR was responsible for the outbreak of World War II. A total of 243 deputies voted in favour.

"We draw attention to the fact that the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact of August 23, 1939 was signed between two totalitarian regimes — the communist Soviet Union and Nazi Germany — [and] led to the explosion of the Second World War on September 1 as a result of German aggression, which the Soviet Union [reciprocated] on September 17", the declaration reads.

At a meeting of the Verkhovna Rada, it was announced that Poland's parliament would approve the declaration on October 20 and that Lithuania's parliament would review the document after its parliamentary elections, which are scheduled for October 23.

Ironic it is too that the Poles are going along with blaming the USSR for Hitler's invasion, the UPA massacred plenty of Poles in their day -mostly women and children:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massacres_of_Poles_in_Volhynia_and_Eastern_Galicia

The massacres of Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia (Polish: rzeź wołyńska, literally: Volhynian slaughter; Ukrainian: Волинська трагедія, Volyn tragedy) were part of an ethnic cleansing operation carried out in Nazi German-occupied Poland by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA)'s North Command in the regions of Volhynia (Reichskommissariat Ukraine) and their South Command in Eastern Galicia (General Government) beginning in March 1943 and lasting until the end of 1944.[4][5][6] The peak of the massacres took place in July and August 1943. Most of the victims were women and children.[4] UPA's methods were particularly savage,[7][8] and resulted in 35,000–60,000 Polish deaths in Volhynia and 25,000–40,000 in Eastern Galicia, for the total of between 76,000 and 106,000 casualties.[1][3][9]

The killings were directly linked with the policies of the Bandera faction of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN-B) and its military arm, the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, whose goal as specified at the Second Conference of the OUN-B on 17–23 February 1943 (or March 1943 according to other sources) was to purge all non-Ukrainians from the future Ukrainian state.[10] Not limiting their activities to the purging of Polish civilians, UPA also wanted to erase all traces of the Polish presence in the area.[11] The violence was endorsed by a significant number of the Ukrainian Orthodox clergy who supported UPA's nationalist cause.[12] The massacres led to a civil conflict between Polish and Ukrainian forces in the German-occupied territories, with the Polish Home Army in Volhynia[13] responding to the Ukrainian attacks.[14][15]

In 2008, the massacres committed by the Ukrainian nationalists against ethnic Poles in Volhynia and Galicia were described by Poland's Institute of National Remembrance as bearing the distinct characteristics of a genocide,[16][17] and on 22 July 2016, the Parliament of Poland passed a resolution recognizing the massacres as Genocide.[18][19]

Update II

I came across this beauty:

http://uatoday.tv/politics/source-of-volyn-massacre-crimes-lies-in-russia-polish-defense-minister-694556.html


Polish Defenсe Minister said Monday, July 11, that Russia shared the blame for the Volyn massacre, the tragic events in 1943-1944 when Ukrainian nationalists slaughtered thousands of Poles.

Antoni Macierewicz made this loud statement in an interview with Polish Public Broadcaster TVP on July 11, 2016 according to Yevropeyska Pravda.
..That Russia is to blame for Ukrainian Nationalists killing Poles

Russia responded:

"Minister shamefully betrays the memory of his ancestors and cheaply sells the history of his country", the First Deputy Chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs, Konstantin Kosachev

The USSR is at least partly responsible given the Nazi-Soviet Pact which carved up Poland. Hitler wanted to make sure the USSR wouldnt interfere with the German invasion.

The Putin regime has resorted to Soviet-style laws against 'falsifiers of history', designed to cover up the Nazi-Soviet pact. Declassified documents also reveal intelligence sharing during the invasion of Norway in 1940. The two sides were very much allies until 1941

The war started when Nazi Germany attacked the USSR, taking the latter completely by surprise.

No the war started when the Nazis invaded Poland, followed by the pre-agreed Soviet invasion of Poland as laid down in the Nazi-Soviet Pact.

I was correcting your assumption that Nazi Germany and the USSR were on the same side in WW2.

I never felt I would have to do that on a politics website, but this is the age we are living in... :)

If you are Czech, the war stated when the UK did a deal with Hitler to sign their country away.

Winston Churchill started WW2 by constantly undermining the peace between Germany and the USSR with his terrorist attacks on German civilians.

He's not wrong, any and all of the main imperialist countries were responsible.

They were on the same side in 1939-June 1941.

It would be wonderful if someone could get their head around translating some of the Ukrainian "Nationalist" waffle- it is really bonkers stuff, and these are the lads that trash such as drummed and Cyp would have people are the frontline of Civilization.

Czechoslovakia was an artificial state cobbled together by the rogues of Versailles. The 3.5 million Germans included in this artificial state were supposed to get a referendum on leaving it - but that was denied to them. So Hitler was totally justified in accepting them home into the German nation. I don't think he was justified in taking the rest of it, but he was justified in talking the German part.

Yes but the British and French practiced appeasment as well. Nobody wanted a war. Russia agreed to let the Nazis carve up Poland but who could blame them at the time. The Russians got totally bogged down in trench war stalemate with the Germans in WWI.

Poland was also created in Versailles.

The USSR was invaded by Nazi Germany.

The USSR defeated Nazi Germany.

Thats it, Dame.
Germany wouldnt have risked invading Poland without the go-ahead from the USSR in the Nazi Soviet Pact. The Soviet invasion of Eastern Poland was agreed in the Treaty. We know this because of declassified Soviet documents.
