The Polish National Memory Institute (IPN) called the recent publication of archival documents on the liberation of Poland from the Nazis “falsification of history.”

The official representative of Russia’s military department, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, said that he didn’t expect a different kind of response from Warsaw. 

He added that the Defense Ministry will continue publishing historical documents from its archives both on the history of World War II and other periods “in order to deprive the Russophobes from the current” institutions “of obscurantism and historical contusion in Poland, Ukraine and other” new European” States, the possibility of further deceiving their peoples, falsifying the history of the Great Patriotic War. “

On the website of the Ministry of Defense you can get acquainted with unique documents – combat reports, which show that the Poles favorably treated Soviet soldiers, participated in the burials of Soviet soldiers who died during the liberation of the country, and promised to perpetuate the achievements of Red Army soldiers with monuments.

The publication took place the day after Polish President Andrzej Duda approved amendments to the law on decommunization, according to which Soviet monuments, including military memorials, should be demolished throughout the country.
