UkhtIzhemLag: Russian complex of concentration camps (Uktha–Izhma ITL, part of Gulag penal system) founded on 10.05.1938 as a result of the split of UkhtPechLag concentration camp complex with HQ in Chibyu (Ukhta) in Izhma river region, in Komi republic. Divided into a number of separate concentration subcamps. At peak in excess of 30,000 prisoners slaved at mines and processing plants (in oil and other materials). The number started to go down in c. 1953, the year of Joseph Stalin, Russian genocidal leader’s death, and in 1955, when UkhtIzhemLag was incorporated into another complex of Russian concentration camps, PechorLag, reached c. 6,000 inmates. Many Poles brought in 1939 after Russian invasion of Poland, Germans (including German women from Volga region) and nationals of Baltic countries (mainly after 1944) were held there. (more on: www.gulagmuseum.org [access: 2014.05.09])

UstUkhtaLag: One of the concentration camps in the Komi republic (beyond Arctic Circle). (more on: www.gulagmuseum.org [access: 2014.11.22])

Uchta: Local capital of a series of Russian concentration camps and forced labour camps — among others in diamond mines and at oil production — part of GULAG penal system, in the Komi republic (beyond Arctic Circle) — such as Uchpechłag, VorkutLag, Inta, Uchwymlag, Uchtiżemlag, Sieżeldor forced labour camps. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2013.08.17])

Gulag: Network of Russian slave labour concentration camps. At any given time up to 12 mln inmates where held in them, milions perished. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.05.09], en.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.05.09])

06.1941 massacres (NKVD): After German attack of Russian‑occupied Polish territory and following that of Russia itself, before a panic escape, Russians murdered — in accordance with the genocidal order issued on 24.06.1941 by the Russian interior minister Lawrence Beria to murder all prisoners held in Russian controlled prisons in occupied Poland — c. 40,000 prisoners held in Russian NKVD prisons in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and many other individuals. Most of them were murdered in massacres in the prisons themselves, the others during so‑called „death marches” when the prisoners were driven out east. (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.09.21])

Lutzk: Prison run in 1939‑41 by the Russians. After German attack in 06.1941 Russians murdered there approx. 2,000 prisoners. Again used by the Russians after 1944. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2017.03.11])

Ribbentrop-Molotov: Genocidal Russian–German alliance pact between Russian leader Joseph Stalin and German leader Adolf Hitler signed on 23.08.1939 in Moscow by respective foreign ministers, Mr. Vyacheslav Molotov for Russia and Joachim von Ribbentrop for Germany. The pact sanctioned and was the direct cause of joint Russian and German invasion of Poland and the outbreak of the II World War in 09.1939. „The war was one of the greatest calamities and dramas of humanity in history, for two atheistic and anti–Christian ideologies — national and international socialism — rejected God and His fifth Decalogue commandment: Thou shall not kill!” (Abp Stanislaus Gądecki, 01.09.2019). The decisions taken were on 28.09.1939 slightly altered and made more precise when a treaty on „German–Russian boundaries and friendship” was agreed by the same murderous signatories. One of its findings was establishment of spheres of influence in Central and Eastern Europe and in consequence IV partition of Poland. In one of its secret annexes agreed, that: „the Signatories will not tolerate on its respective territories any Polish propaganda that affects the territory of the other Side. On their respective territories they will suppress all such propaganda and inform each other of the measures taken to accomplish it”. The agreements resulted in a series of meeting between two genocidal organization representing both sides — German Gestapo and Russian NKVD when coordination of efforts to exterminate Polish intelligentsia and Polish leading classes (in Germany called Intelligenzaktion, in Russia took the form of Katyń massacres) where discussed. Resulted in deaths of hundreds of thousands of Polish intelligentsia, including thousands of priests presented here, and tens of millions of ordinary people,. The results of this Russian–German pact lasted till 1989 and are still in evidence even today. (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2015.09.30])

Polish-Russian war of 1919—20: War for independence of Poland and its borders. Poland regained independence in 1918 but had to fight for its borders with former imperial powers, in particular Russia. Russia planned to incite Bolshevik–like revolutions in the Western Europe and thus invaded Poland. Russian invaders were defeated in 08.1920 in a battle called Warsaw battle („Vistula river miracle”, one of the 10 most important battles in history, according to some historians). Thanks to this victory Poland recaptured part of the lands lost during partitions of Poland in XVIII century, and Europe was saved from the genocidal Communism.
