I guess for it to be considered liberation they'd need to f*ck off again afterwards, not linger and install a puppet government and insist they join your military/economic bloc.


Visited Poland a few years ago, and in one city came across a massive Russian war cemetery. You could see the Russians had spent a lot of time and effort making it a fitting memorial...statues, tanks and artillery pieces on plinths etc, but the place had obviously been totally neglected and ignored since they left... obviously the Poles didn't give a shit about them.

By contrast, at a friends farm at a small village in Southern Poland, there were 5 or 6 Germans buried down near their gate. What was wierd (I thought) was that someone 60 years later was placing fresh flowers on their grave every week, but no one knew who it was. It made no sense to me, but the only thing I could think of was that the Germans were christians, unlike the Russians.

The impression I got, was that although the Poles weren't that keen on the Germans, they absolutely hated the Russians.


That'll be news to the Patriarch of Moscow


I don't think he had a lot of influence during the Communist era...

Maybe a fair bit during the war though? There was a large religious revival, cynically promoted and exploited by Stalin. The Russian peasants who made up the bulk of the red army were likely still pretty religious
