Political scientist Alexander Rahr associated with revenge the refusal of the Polish authorities to invite the President of Russia Vladimir Putin on celebrating 75-year anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. His words are quoted by the TV channel “360”.
Rahr said that Poland harbored a grudge against the Soviet Union, because he has long kept her under control in their Communist system. “They by all means want to partly avenge Russia today for it. They want to be in the image of eternal victims”, — explained the expert.
The analyst also condemned the behavior of the leadership of Poland. He believes that to use the sad anniversary to impose anti-Russian narrative is wrong.
Commemorative events in honor of the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz in Poland have to pass on January 27. It is assumed that Putin will not be there. In July 2019 the Polish authorities have announced their intention to send the Russian President’s invitation. Then the press Secretary of the head of Poland’s Blazej Spychalski said that the fact that the camp’s liberation by the Soviet army is historic.
