ABSTRACT
This article presents information on issues related to the repression of the Polish people. Legitimate disgust was the appropriate reaction to the sight and sound of West European leaders sheltering behind the convenient fiction that the Soviets were not intervening in Poland. It is informed that the Polish army is fully integrated into the forces of the Warsaw Pact, which appropriately has its headquarters in Warsaw, under its commander-in-chief, the Soviet Marshal V.G. Kulikov. The Russians have also kept two tank divisions in Poland.
