Kuropaty: In 1940 Russians executed in Kuropaty n. Minsk unknown number of Poles (POWs) — on a so‑called “Kuropaty death list” is assumed 3435 names were recorded — it is not known how many of them perished in Kuropaty. This was a fulfillment of Russian government decision to exterminate Polish intelligentsia and individuals jailed in prisoners of war camps (Polish holocaust). Kuropaty is the place of death of up to 250,000 of victims (1937—41). (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2013.01.17], pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2013.08.10])

Minsk-Czerwień „death march”: After German attack on 22.06.1941 of their erstwhile ally, Russians, the latter on 24.06.1941 started evacuation of two prisons in Minsk where many Poles, members of Polish clandestine resistance Armed Struggle Union ZWZ organization (part of future Polish Clandestine State), among others — Lithuanians, Belarusians — were held. Some of the prisoners — altogether a dozen or so thousands — were murdered in Minsk itself. The rest were marched in groups along the road towards Mogilev (c. 200 km). The murderers started from the outset — Russians shot with guns those deemed week. The bodies were left in ditches by the roadside. Czerwień (c. 60 km from Minsk) the column of prisoners — then only c. 2,000 strong — reached after 4 days. There, in a nearby forest, Russians murdered another few hundred of them. Only few dozen survived — thanks to German aerial bombing raid that forced Russians to flee. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2018.09.02])

Minsk: Russian prison. In 1937 site of mass murders perpetrated by the Russians during a „Great Purge”. After Russian invasion of Poland in 09.1939 and start of the II World War place of incarceration of many Poles, In 06.1941, under attack by Germans, Russians murdered there a group of Polish prisoner kept in Central and co‑called American prisons in Mińsk. The rest were driven towards Czerwień in a „death march” (10,000‑20,000 prisoners perished), into Russia. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2013.08.17])

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])
