The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is indignant with the Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs’ Wednesday statement regarding the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp. Sergey Lavrov, the head of the Russian diplomacy accused Schetyna of blasphemy, Polish Radio reported.
Grzegorz Schetyna said on Polish Radio that the death camp was liberated by the Ukrainians due to the fact it were the forces of the First Ukrainian front who did it. In response, the Russian ministry pointed out that the “‘Ukrainian front does not refer to the nationality of the soldiers, because there were several nationalities of the Soviet Union within this army.”
“We believe that one should restrain from mocking history and not go as far as being disrespectful to the soldiers that sacrificed their lives to liberate Europe, under the influence of anti-Russian hysteria,” the Russian diplomats emphasised.
