The expulsion of Russia’s historian, Institute of national remembrance of Poland Henryk Hlembotski is a hostile act against historians who show what in fact was the Soviet totalitarian system. This was stated by the head of the defense Ministry of Poland, Anthony Macierewicz, reports Polish radio.
“This is a well-known historian, who dealt in particular with topics connected with the security of the Soviet state, is very deeply studying the apparatus, and therefore, I think that this is a hostile act against those historians ( … ) that show the level of dependence and enslavement of the poles by the Soviet Union. I explain it so,” said Macierewicz.
According to him, the expulsion of the Polish historian suggests that the people showing than really was the totalitarian Soviet regime, is undesirable for Russia.
However, the Minister noted that “can be so many different interpretations”, given the facts of this case, he does not know.
