    Medvedev blasts Ukraine, Baltic states


    Monday, August 31, 2009
    MOSCOW: Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Sunday criticised Ukraine and the Baltic states for glorifying “Nazi accomplices”, speaking ahead of the 70th anniversary of the start of World War II.

    “We are seeing some astounding trends,” Medvedev said in an interview with the Rossia state television channel.

    “Governments in the Baltic states and even Ukraine are now essentially pronouncing former Nazi accomplices to be their national heroes who fought for the liberation of their nations.

    “Of course, everyone knows what really happened, but everyone looks down in shame, so as to avoid souring relations.”

    Russia has repeatedly criticised former Soviet republics Ukraine, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania for seeking to rehabilitate anti-Communist groups that in some cases collaborated with the Nazis and committed atrocities against Jews. Medvedev also lashed out at a resolution passed in July by the parliamentary assembly of the Organisation for Co-operation and Security in Europe (OSCE) which condemned both Nazism and Stalinism.

    Medvedev said the resolution had pronounced Nazi Germany and Stalin’s Soviet Union “to be equally responsible for World War II” and said: “Now this, quite frankly, is a flat-out lie.”

    He appeared to be referring to the resolution’s assertion that both regimes brought about genocide and war crimes, and its call to establish a Europe-wide memorial day on August 23, the anniversary of a notorious Nazi-Soviet pact.

    *pshaa*, this is nothing more then a d**k sucking towards western nations and in any attempt to throw something in Russia's face saying "they are evil and we hate you" (as they cry and run away in fear). But what they fail to realize, is at a point, Ukraine helped fight against the nazis, Russia and all other Nations part of the USSR (Soviet union). What is troublesome in reality, is that all these countries fail to realize they where too part of the problem they call the Soviet Union, but passed all the blame to Russia and never bothered looking at each other. The worst ones in this whole debacle that got this all stirred up, is Poland.

    We take alot of flak for the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, is just ironic these nations criticise us for that when they embody Nazi criminals.
