Russia pays tribute to the courage of Soviet warriors, 600,000 of whom died for Poland's liberation
Russia pays tribute to the courage of Soviet warriors, 600,000 of whom died for Poland's liberation, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the ceremony dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp by the Soviet Army. "We bow to millions of people who saw the hell of death camps, were executed and tortured to death, died of starvation and diseases. We bow to the victims of the Holocaust and the outrageous war unleashed by the Nazis. We mourn for them and remember the immortal feat of the armies of the anti-Hitler coalition which defeated Nazism. We remember all the allies," the Russian leader said. Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski also spoke about the great contribution of the Soviet Union into the victory over Nazism. "We remember the great contribution of the Russians and other Soviet nations into the victory over Nazism, we remember that the fate of World War II was decided mainly at the Eastern Front and that the Red Army took Berlin. 20 million warriors killed in action and civilians eliminated by the Nazis were the horrible price which the Soviet people had to pay for this historic victory. We all admire their victim," Mr. Kwasniewski said. According to him, Poland commemorates everyone who fought in the Soviet Army and died for the country's liberation from the Nazis.
