In 1989, Soviet scholars revealed Joseph Stalin had indeed ordered the massacre, and in 1990 Mikhail Gorbachev admitted the NKVD had executed the Poles and confirmed two other burial sites similar to the site at Katyn: Mednoye and Piatykhatky.
why debate about 25K polish officiers when you have a few million russians dead in gulags, massacres and hunger
in the 40s, the munich tribunal tried to pin that on the nazis but it turned out it was the russians and nazis were innocentedthe two things are separated.
no one denying Gulags ( i even visited some )
but katyn massacre was made by nazis and thats a big debate now..gorbachiov ..among the other things commit also this crime in falsifyig in exchange of €€€€.thats an internal conflict in Ussr since 1956 and continue till today..
So why would they pin it on the russians if it wasnt them... and that was when the politics of the time would have wanted to pin it on the germans and to keep the russian out to save the negotiations on all europeen matters
