harsh conditions of polish occupation
Well for once if you would stop fooling yourself as to:
- Polish occupation - it was self-determination done by the majority of said territory !
- as to allegedly harsh conditions - those conditions were most liberal in this part of Europe if not the world.
You must see that such a attitude is what is prompting your politicians to peruse that chauvinistic and unbecoming course of action.
The truth is the former GDL were divided into three parts Belorussian, Polish and what is called now Lithuanian.
All parts have been equally entitled to inheritance left by the former GDL !
Lithuanian part was weak, Belorussian very weak and Polish could count on support of the former Crown!
I personally wouldn't have anything against Wilno being a part of nowadays Lithuania if not for your government acting against Poles and their rights and treating Poland as an enemy.It has to stop!
The first step would be cleaning the Lithuanian history books from chauvinistic and politically motivated rubbish such as you have portended here.
See the truth instead of myths !
Then and only then we can build on mutual respect
and that includes mutual respect of rights and borders.
Regarding census - even if the census is biased( which I doubt) it still doesn't change the fact that Wilno and area have been prodemintly Polish before the war.
Now, would you cease all territories with Polish majority to Poland? If not how would you explain your keen interest and indeed interest of your country before the war in obtaining area where Lithuanian population have been scarce at best.
Double standards ?
Ukrayins'ka Narodnia Respublika.
No such a country existed Harry. Aspirations are not counting. I think that your knowledge of history is failing you here.
Poland formed alliance with and military supported an atempt by Petlura to build the independent Ukrainian state.
Without support of the local population for such a state what would you expect Poland to do - fight for the Ukrainian state without Ukrainians support ? Why would excuse Britain than for not fighting Soviets alone, at least the have Polish army and population would support them?
Sold for money ? That money was retribution for lost property and war damages.
I see that you are reverting to your squabbling
I must conclude that the only aim of your historical studies is to be used as a tool in moulding Poles into the shape of your PC views and beliefs.
Can you deny it?
Answer above !
No, the country which Poland had agreed would exist.
Don't be ridiculous, facts are facts and wishes are just wishes !
If you revert to your usual squabble
I will ignore you.
