Russia Admonishes Attempts to Rewrite Auschwitz History / Sputnik International

Moscow has expressed surprise about Poland's assertion that the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp was liberated by Ukraine.

Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin warned against revising history, as it pertained to the liberation of the infamous death camp Auschwitz, the Russian TV channel RT reports.

Churkin made the remarks after an eyebrow-raising claim by Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna, who said that the camp had allegedly been liberated by Ukrainian troops from the First Ukrainian Front.

Speaking at a UN conference commemorating the liberation of the camp in New York on Wednesday, Churkin reminded that it was Soviet Army soldiers who liberated Auschwitz concentration camp.

He added that the Red Army gave the First Ukrainian Front its moniker "as it liberated Ukraine from the Nazis before reaching Poland through battles."

"Like all other parts of the Red Army, [the front] was multinational and consisted of Russians, Ukrainians, Belarusians, Georgians, Armenians, Azerbaijanis, representatives of the peoples of Central Asia, and many others [from the] more than 100 ethnic groups of the Soviet Union," Churkin said.

Asking his Polish counterpart Bogusław Winid to tell the Polish Foreign Minister about his mistake, Churkin expressed hope that Schetyna "didn’t intend to offend so many peoples."
