StepLag: Special slave labor concentration camp No. 4 StepLag (part of Gulag complex) founded on 28.02.1948 by the Russian MGB, the successor of the genocidal NKVD, in place of the Russian Jezkazgan POW camp No. 39 (founded in turn on the site of former JezkazganLag slave labour camp in Karaganda region of Kazakhstan). Max. c. 27,855 prisoners (01.01.1950) were held captive there. Most of them were people recognized by the Russians as of Ukrainian nationality (c. 46%) — prob. a significant part of them were earlier, in 1939, citizens of the Polish state. The prisoners worked as slaves in the mining of copper and manganese ores, erecting ore processing factories, coal mines, woodworking, brick burning, building the Kengir dam and building a hydroelectric power plant. On 05‑06.1954 an uprising took place in the camp, which was bloodily crushed by the Russians with the help of tanks. The camp was closed on 24.04.1956.

SibLag: Russian concentration camp and forced labour camp (part of Gulag penal system) in Syberia. Founded in 1929. One the largest — initially spread over large area from Omsk to Krasnoiarsk, as matter of fact whole Western Siberian Plain, next subdivided and limited to Novosibirsk, Tomsk and Kemerovo oblasts. Headquarters were in Mariinsk in Kemerovo oblast (for a time also in Novisibirisk), where a central camp for invalids was also operational. Up to 80,000 inmates were held in SibLag (in 1942). Prisoners slaved at railroad construction, forestry, carpentry and in coal mines, and other industrial branches. Closed down in c. 1960.

Grodno: Prison used both by the Russians (in 1920, 1939‑41 and from 1944) and the Germans (in 1941‑4). Thousands of Poles were jailed there.

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. In a political sense, the pact was an attempt to restore the status quo ante before 1914, with one exception, namely the „commercial” exchange of the so–called „Kingdom of Poland”, which in 1914 was part of the Russian Empire, fore Eastern Galicia (today's western Ukraine), in 1914 belonging to the Austro–Hungarian Empire. Galicia, including Lviv, was to be taken over by the Russians, the „Kingdom of Poland” — under the name of the General Governorate — Germany. The resultant „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 — backed up by the betrayal of the formal allies of Poland, France and Germany, which on 12.09.1939, at a joint conference in Abbeville, decided not to provide aid to attacked Poland and not to take military action against Germany (a clear breach of treaty obligations with Poland) — 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.orgClick to attempt to display webpage
