The Russian President Vladimir Putin resumed war on declarations with Poland on Tuesday, accusing the country of having concluded a ‘deal’ with Hitler and acting ‘anti-Semitically’ on the eve of World War II, reports France Press Agency, according to Agerpres.
Addressing an auditorium of high-ranking officers from the Ministry of Defense, the Russian president assured that he was aware of archives recovered in Europe by the Red Army after 1945, showing that several states, including Poland, were in complicity with the Nazi dictator.
‘They (the Poles) have practically reached an agreement with Hitler. It is clear from the archive documents, “Putin said,” insulted by the way in which Hitler and Poland discussed the so-called Jewish problem. ”
Putin made assurances that he was acquainted with historical documents in which the Polish ambassador to Germany in 1938 promised Hitler to erect a ‘beautiful monument’ in Warsaw after the Nazi leader proposed to ‘send the Jews to the African colonies’.
This ambassador ‘completely sympathized with Hitler’, accused Putin, calling the former Polish diplomat ‘rogue’ and ‘anti-Semitic pig’.
The Kremlin leader also made a parallel with the decisions of the current Polish officials who “order the monuments of the Red Army soldiers to be demolished”, once celebrated as the liberators of the country.
In recent days, Russia and Poland have multiplied their historical accusations.
The Russian diplomacy has criticized Warsaw’s “aggressive rhetoric”, while the Polish Foreign Ministry has expressed “concern” over “presenting a false image of events” by Russian officials.
Russia has been denouncing for many years what it considers to be oblivious to the entry into the Western countries of the considerable sacrifices made by the USSR until 1945 and especially the death of 27 million Soviets in World War II.
Vladimir Putin on Friday denounced a September European Parliament resolution on ‘European memory’, which puts communism and Nazism on an equal footing.
Also at the meeting on Tuesday, President Putin praised the new hypersonic weapons developed by Russia and which “no other country has.”
