A line among Russia and EU nations over the reasons for World War Two has raised, with a top Russian authority sentencing the US minister to Poland.
Parliament Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said a tweet by Ambassador Georgette Mosbacher was “annoying” to Russians and Americans.
On Monday she tweeted: “Dear President Putin, Hitler and Stalin conspired to begin WWII.”
President Vladimir Putin says Poland and its partners are twisting history.
During a long distance race news meeting on 19 December, the Russian president said it was “absolutely unsatisfactory and incorrect” to cast equivalent fault on Nazi pioneer Adolf Hitler and Soviet pioneer Joseph Stalin for the war’s flare-up.
Mr Putin said he had mentioned Soviet chronicle archives so as to compose an article regarding the matter – Nazi Germany’s intrusion of Poland on 1 September 1939 – and, in his view, to sort the record out.
He contended that the Western forces and Poland had mollified Hitler’s hostility by letting him get Czechoslovakia in 1938.
For what reason is Putin irate at Poland?

The Nazi intrusion of Poland came only seven days after Hitler’s Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop and Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov had marked a non-hostility agreement on 23 August 1939, which staggered the world.
A mystery proviso in the agreement cut up Eastern Europe into Nazi and Soviet effective reaches, permitting the two despots – one extremist, the other socialist – to involve and disassemble Poland.
