They got invited, that's makes them happy and hopefully takes the bite out of...you know...this parade they missed.
Yeah that gives an other thing to think of, I bet that if the British did a parade now and then and invited some Polish soldiers over things would get better ;p
It was the same with the Germans...honestly...in the beginning they were the bad invaders but they completely changed after '44...they wandered back into Germany and fighted only a justified and righteous defense war for the Heimat against the attacking allies...no Hitler anymore...seriously!
That is a fact ;)
(what could those Hitlerjugend have done defending Berlin during 1944? Gas people? Hardly)
Russians don't seem to mind why should we!
They start to mind thanks to their nowadays president? :D
Erm...you think all the Red Armists who before invaded Poland had died in the mean time and the new huggable Red Armist hugging AK soldiers were all new and fresh?
You know by yourself that the Soviet lost a lot of soldiers, there was a LOT of recruitment going on and I doubt really there was a lot of survivors from 1939-1941 when the Red army was entering Poland later on...
Also they hugged those AK and cheered together because they were allies not of anything special. But ofc these NKVD saw upon AK as fascists and so on :((
Yeah, payback is a b!tch :)
It clearly shows that they invited for nowadays political reasons ONLY :)
(now I kinda know how the commies feel in Russia, poor sods)
