Soviet Union under Stalin was an evil empireOn April, 25th, 1920 — Poland without declaration of war has attacked Russia which is bleeding profusely in civil war, and under the Riga contract has appropriated a part of the Ukrainian and Belorussian earths.
In October, 1920 the Polish armies have grasped Vilno and Vilensky area at Lithuania, inconsiderately having broken the Suvalksky contract.
On May, 3rd, 1921 Poland a military way has begun capture of the Top Silesia. Allies have warned Berlin that intervention рейхсвера will mean war. As a result by October, 1921 to Poland the considerable part of the Top Silesia from 80 % of all industry and the basic part of coal stocks has departed.
In October, 1938 Poland has attacked Czechoslovakia, having snipped off at last Teshinsky area where lived 80 thousand Poles and 120 thousand Czechs. Thus the industrial potential of the grasped territory was the main acquisition of Poles: the enterprises located there gave in the end of 1938 almost half of pig-iron and a steel, made in Poland.
During all 20-30th years Poland didn't leave intentions to annex Lithuania. Have especially inspired Warsaw Hitler's aggressive actions in Austria in March of 1938. By the way, with Hitler's fascist mode the Polish management long time was in rather good fellowship, having concluded the non-aggression pact in 1934. When Hitler 1938 carried out on March, 11-12th annex Austria, Warsaw has tried to do the same with Lithuania (which called precisely «the Polish Austria»). On March, 15th, 1938 in Warsaw and Vilno have passed the Antilithuanian demonstrations under the general slogan «Forward on Kovno!» (To Kaunas — capital of Lithuania of that time). To Lithuania the ultimatum has been delivered, and to the Lithuanian border is concentrated over 100 thousand Polish armies. And only the position of the USSR and France has kept Poland from military intrusion.
