SolikamLag: Russian slave labour concentration camp — part of Gulag system — near Solikamsk in Perm Krai in Urals. Founded in 1931. Prisoners slave and cellulose manufacturing plant construction, among others. Potassium and magnesium salts were extracted and processed to produce metallic potassium and magnesium. In 1941 800 Latvian were brought in — most perished. From 1944/5 German POWs, Latvians and Lithuanians and former Russian Red Army soldiers taken POW by Germans and then freed by Russian advance were brought in. Mortality rate in 1942 reached c. 35.5%.

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])

Vilnius (Rossa prison): After end of the II World War and start of Russian occupation of Lithuania Russians appropriated the Visitation Sisters’ cloister and Holiest Heart of Jesus church at Rossa Str. in Vilnius and used them as prison — correctional camp. As such operates till now. (more on: lt.wikipedia.org [access: 2018.09.02])

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])
