AAAAnd? Your opinion
A big pile of the usual garbage of a fella who needs to write a column for a paper. After all he needs to make a living somehow.
An example:It's true that Russians have a mistaken idea about history, much like Poles, but at least they (RUssians) falsify history to their own benefit.
What kind of statement is that? That guy is an academic? Don't some Poles falsify history in the exact same manner? Am I wrong, or is this guy serious by commanding Russians for lying in a manner that is acceptable to him?
or this one:They don't glorify their defeats, nor do they erect monuments to those who lost
Of course that is a lie too. They did lose in early WW2 by being swindled by Hitler and Co. That was a huge defeat in their military intelligence and political insight. And then they erected gobs of humongous monuments to the fallen, including those they killed themselves.
Heck, they even glorify their own weakness by establishing an anniversary of 1612 as their national holiday to honor a defeat of an insignificant group of drunken Poles who thought they could rule Moscow. How desperate, or hateful does one have to be to make that little bump in the history of a nation a major holiday?
Meanwhile they neglect to celebrate their newly found freedom after centuries of being screwed by herds of Mongols and the like.
