    An Associated Press correction last week and reactions to it show that the question of whether the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany were allies at the dawn of World War II remains a hot-button issue for many Russians and eastern Europeans. The correction was issued to an article about a Holocaust commemoration in the Ukrainian city of Lviv that originally called the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany ďformer allies.Ē The AP concluded that the pact reached on Aug. 23, 1939 by the German and Soviet foreign ministers Joachim von Ribbentrop and Vyacheslav Molotov didnít constitute a formal alliance, thus the...

    Great Power War ^ | 9/23/18 | USA Features
    In May 1997, NATO and Russia signed the ďFounding Act,Ē which stated, among other things, that ďNATO and Russia do not consider each other as adversaries,Ē and that ďin the current and foreseeable security environment,Ē NATO would not seek ďadditional permanent stationing of substantial ground combat forcesĒ inside nations close to Russia. Nothing was discussed about the Founding Act at the U.S.-Poland summit, but permanently deploying U.S. troops ó especially a division-sized element ó on Polish soil would essentially make the agreement moot. Right now, U.S. and NATO troops are regularly deployed on Polish soil, but only on a rotational...

    Eight European countries at the United Nations, including five Security Council members, on Thursday called on Israel to reverse its decision to demolish the illegal Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar, AFP reported. Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Belgium, Poland and the Netherlands warned that the demolition of the village ďwould severely threaten the viability of the two-state solutionĒ. ďWe therefore call upon the Israeli authorities to reconsider their decision to demolish Khan al-Ahmar,Ē the countries said in a joint statement released ahead of a council meeting on the Middle East. Khan al-Ahmar was built in the 1990s on land belonging...

    President Trump's name appears on dozens of buildings worldwide, but if the leader of Poland has his way, properties like Trump Tower and Trump International Hotel may soon be joined by a conspicuously named military installation: Fort Trump. Speaking with Trump and reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday, Poland's president, Andrzej Duda, told Trump that he'd like the U.S. to create a permanent military base with that name in Poland -- and that Poland would pay more than $2 billion for the project. Duda emphasized that his country was "willing to make a very major contribution to the United...

    Science in Poland ^ | September 7, 2018 | Marcin Boguszewski, tr. RL
    Archaeologists conducting excavations near Barczewko discovered the skeleton of a man killed in 1354 during the Lithuanian invasion. This place is called the "Pompeii of Warmia" because the ruins of the city destroyed during the invasion are preserved intact. According to Dr. Arkadiusz Koperkiewicz from the University of GdaÉsk, who leads the research at Barczewko, the find is yet another confirmation of the unique nature of this archaeological site, which is an invaluable source of knowledge about the beginnings of colonization in Warmia. The skeleton of a man who died almost 700 years ago during the destruction of one of...

    The first Polish private claim against the German government for compensation over medical experiments at the Auschwitz death camp was to be lodged on Friday with a district court in Warsaw, according to a report.

Public broadcaster Polish Radio cited Hambura as saying he hoped there would be more such suits. More than 1.1 million people perished at the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp during World War II, mostly...

    France does not want to finance a populist Europe, the countryís foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has indicated, just as the fight over the EUís new long-term budget begins in earnest. These strong words were said in Paris on Wednesday during the annual conference of French ambassadors, a meeting at which the French head of diplomacy officially indicates the most important directions of the countryís foreign policy. 71-year-old Le Drian, who after the victory of French President Emmanuel Macron took the helm of French diplomacy, said that France and Germany intend to work out a common position on migration before...

    The Hungarian government is openly asking ďWhatís wrong with the Swedes?Ē as the Scandinavian countryís pro-immigration government lashes out at Budapest, while the leader of Polandís governing Law and Justice Party has said his country must avoid Western Europeís ďsocial diseasesĒ. In a public blog post on the official About Hungary website, Hungarian government spokesman ZoltŠn KovŠcs posed the question: ďWhy are these senior Swedish figures portraying Hungary as Europeís bogeyman, spreading falsehoods and distorting facts about our governmentís policies on migration? Could it have something to do with the fact that the country faces general elections on September 9th?Ē...

    Early this morning, United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) implemented a 2004 order of deportation to the Federal Republic of Germany of Jakiw Palij, a former Nazi SS labor camp guard in German-occupied Poland and a postwar resident of Queens, New York. President Trump commends his Administrations comprehensive actions, especially ICEs actions, in removing this war criminal from United States soil. Despite a court ordering his deportation in 2004, past administrations were unsuccessful in removing Palij. To protect the promise of freedom for Holocaust survivors and their families, President Trump prioritized the removal of Palij. Through extensive negotiations, President...

    (Washington Post) - The right-wing Polish government is continuously breaking new ground in its attacks on democracy and the rule of law. But now it has set a truly astonishing precedent. Warsaw has just used its European Union powers to deport a government critic and banned her from entering any country within the European free movement zone. The implications are ominous ó and not only for Poland. Lyudmyla Kozlovska, a young human rights defender, is a fervent promoter of democratic Poland. ...This week, the Polish government deported Kozlovska. The authorities have not provided any explanation, but the likely reason is...

    As military personnel paraded through Warsaw on foot, horseback, and armored vehicles on Wednesday, Polish President Andrzej Duda reiterated his country's call for a permanent US military presence on its soil ó a presence that the Eastern European country has said it's willing to pay $2 billion to get. A permanent US Army presence would "deter every potential aggressor," Duda said, it what was almost certainly a reference to Russia, whose recent assertive moves in Europe ó particularly the 2014 annexation of Crimea and incursion in Ukraine ó have prompted NATO members to increase their activity along the alliance's eastern...

    HPSurf sent this clip of Polish MP Dominik Tarczynski schooling a BBC bimbo on Muslim immigration in Poland. He also mentioned he was thinking of moving there. All I can say is dlaczego nie? First Poland saved Europe from the Ottomans (single-handedly), then from the Kaiser (an assist) followed by the Commies (a major assist) and now again from the modern-incarnation of the Ottomans - which aren’t much different from the ones some 400 years ago. Just how many times does Poland have to save Western Civilization anyway? I think we should help them this time by adopting Dominik Tarczynski’s platform...

    Italyís Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini has rejected an EU offer to pay out Ä6,000 for every new migrant they take. Salvini has seen his popularity surge with the adoption of tough new policies to protect the Mediterranean countryís maritime borders and block the NGOs which have been ferrying thousands of illegal migrants to Europe from smuggler boats off the coast of Libya. the EU has so far attempted to use the carrot rather than the stick against the Italians, attempting to induce them to accept more migrants through financial incentives rather than financial penalties...
