Enough said. Perhaps when they stop enjoying State funds, they'll protest against real things.
That's funny, you being European and all (formerly Scottish), wish students to fund their own education.
So whilst Russia is busy holding its hands up for the Katyn massacre
It's not binding what they have done so far. Duma can vote tomorrow and blame the Germans. The law is what matters. Miedwiediew, in his interview with Lis, played off the Russian court's recent reply to Strasbourg calling the crime an "occurance" and its unwillingness to hand over the Katyń files in a casual way. He simply said he is not aware of it. M. is a lawyer, mind you. 66 volumes are still secret. What Polish historians think is that there must be evidence in the record of German-Soviet co-operation during the time of extermination of Polish intelligence. Gestapo and NKVD did meet several times and certainly discussed the Polish opostion. Then they proceeded in carrying out the crime. Another thing we know that should be there is a film, or rather the copy, as the original was given to North Korea in 1950 as a training film, of, well, we will see if they ever declassify the files.
Not surprisingly, there is no discussion about concrete issues that prevent us from drinking together, but the show must go on.
Very good move on Russia's part, as Poland is about to take EU's presidency soon, at least they know what they are doing.
You socialist scum should unite in denouncing this post. :)
