Russia is adding insult to injury once more with the verdict out how will they explaine this to the children in the future?
GAZETA WYBORCZA focuses on the interpretation of the Katyn massacre of 1940 presented in a new history textbook introduced in Russian schools.
Russia never wanted to take full responsibility for the execution of thousands of Polish army officers taken as POWs by the Soviets following the annexation of eastern Polish territories under the infamous non-aggression pact with Nazi Germany in the first days of World War Two. The newest version of this history tells Russian school children that Katyn was simply squaring accounts with Poles for the death of thousands of Russian prisoners in the Polish-Bolshevik war of 1920. As for Katyn itself, it was a Stalinist crime and Russia, as such, cannot assume responsibility for the genocide, claim top Russian politicians.

The Circular Military Court in Moscow has adjourned until September 30 the hearing of an appeal filed by family members of the Polish officers murdered by the Soviet NKVD in 1940 in Katyn against the decision made by the Russian General Military Prosecution to dismiss the case, informs ultraconservative Nasz Dziennik daily.
Katyn “deserved revenge”?
From now on, Russian pupils will be informed that some 22,000 Polish officers were indeed killed by the NKVD in Katyn in 1940, but the act was fully justified and “politically suitable”, reports a Moscow-based liberal, but pro-government daily newspaper Vremya Novostei.
