    Czech citizens condemn decision to wrap Soviet marshal's statue in tarp — Russian embassy


    PRAGUE, August 31. /TASS/. The Russian Embassy in Prague said it had been receiving letters from Czech citizens condemning the municipal authorities’ decision to wrap in tarp a monument to Soviet military commander Ivan Konev in the Prague 6 district.

    "The embassy has been receiving letters from Czech citizens who condemn this move by the municipal authorities. Many of them wonder which side would the incumbent municipal government of the Prague 6 district support during the World War II," the embassy said in a statement, posted on Facebook.

    "It should be noted that the radical decision to cover in tarpaulin the monument to one of those who saved Europe from horrors of Nazism was made in the run-up to the 80th anniversary of the most horrific military conflict in human history," the statement says.

    The Russian embassy views those actions as a yet another attempt to desecrate the memory of Red Army soldiers, who gave their lives to liberate Czechoslovakia from Nazi troops.

    Czech Presidential Spokesman Jiri Ovcacek condemned the municipal authorities’ decision earlier this week.

    The district’s head Ondrej Kolar said on Thursday that Konev’s monument falls victim to vandals at least two times a year, which, according to him, points to the local residents’ negative view of the Soviet military commander. The politician insists on removing the monument and relocating it to the territory of the Russian Embassy, also located in the Prague 6 district.

    The monument to Konev was placed in Prague in 1980 to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the liberation of the Czech capital from Nazi invaders by the 1st Ukrainian Front of the Soviet military forces, headed by Konev.

    Johnson’s statement on World War II unacceptable, says Russian embassy


    The British PM said that in September 1939 Poland found itself "trapped between the hammer of fascism and the anvil of communism"

    LONDON, September 3. /TASS/. Russia’s Embassy in London has referred to the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s words regarding the beginning of the World War II as unacceptable. PM said in a video message posted on Twitter late last week that in September 1939 Poland found itself "trapped between the hammer of fascism and the anvil of communism."

    "This statement, made on the day of the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Second World War, is perplexing. With all historical discussions around the Soviet military operation in the eastern areas of Poland (Western Ukraine and Western Belarus), to describe things in a way that effectively equates the actions of the USSR to Hitler’s aggression is absolutely unacceptable. If one is to discuss who, apart from Hitler, is responsible for the Polish tragedy of 1939, one cannot avoid recalling the role of the British diplomacy that not only connived in the Nazis’ aggressive policies (remember Austria, Czechoslovakia, Memel), but also continuously frustrated Soviet proposals to build an efficient anti-Nazi alliance, including specifically to defend Poland," the diplomatic mission’s press service said in a statement.

    "This discussion may be lengthy, but let’s leave it to historians. A vast majority of Russians and Britons, when recalling the Second World War, pay tribute to the fallen and to the Soviet-British alliance. It is regrettable that the Prime Minister has chosen a different angle which, thankfully, does not enjoy much popularity in Britain," the embassy noted.

    NATO historical revisionism in action. They call western Belorus and Ukraine as "Poland" even though Poland grabbed these lands
    during its 1920 war of territorial expansion and aggression that took advantage of the weakened state of the former Russian Empire
    in the wake of the 1917 revolution. If you note how Stalin "carved" up "Poland" with Hitler you will see that the line follows the
    proper Polish border with Belorus and Ukraine. NATO propagandists always paint the "carve up" as some 50/50 split. Interesting
    how NATO is spazzing about Crimea rejoining Russia after its illegal annexation by Ukraine in 1991. These same scumbags use
    a totally different standard in the case of the lands illegally annexed by Poland in the early 1920s. Although there is a common
    thread of consistency as long as some pro-NATO element does the annexation then it is fully legit and lawful....

    Some honest truth about alcoholism in the UK. Yet these sanctimonious prats actually believe that Russians are all swigging from vodka bottles all day long.
    It looks to me like the UK is the country with the real alcoholism problem.
