OPEN LETTER FROM 100 + 1 MEPS

Strasbourg, November 2004

An open letter from Members of the European Parliament to leaders of the states and the public in the world

The President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, has invited leaders of the world’s countries to gather in Moscow on 9th May 2005, to celebrate the day when the USSR, led then by J. Stalin, celebrated its victory in Europe as the end of World War II.

The victory of the USSR was different from that of democratic Europe, achieved in alliance with the USA, because of the subsequent Soviet domination of entire European countries which effectively became "captive nations". Europe itself marks the end of the war with Nazi Germany on 8th May.

The Russian Federation is the legal successor State to the Soviet Union, but it has continually evaded its responsibility for the crimes which the Soviet State committed against humanity and its neighbouring countries. In the context of true history, the proposed high level event on 9th May 2005, in Moscow, will mark not the end of World War II, but rather the approval of the Soviet occupations and the crimes of totalitarian Communism.

We understand that it is important for the European Union to have a good relationship with its neighbour, the Russian Federation. We bow our heads in deep respect before all of the victims of World War II. The facts of history, however, cannot be denied.

World War II took place after the totalitarian Soviet Union concluded a series of agreements with Nazi Germany. Totalitarian Soviet Union actively assisted Nazi Germany to conquer the greater part of free Europe, supplying the German Army and its military industries for 18 crucial months with oil, food and other strategic raw materials.

At the same time, in agreement with Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union committed aggression against Poland, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Romania. As a result of its aggression against Finland, the Soviet Union was expelled from the membership of the League of Nations.

It is even more important that all of the countries involved in World War II, most notably Germany, have re-evaluated that period in their history; but the Russian Federation is not following this path of reassessment and does not take a critical position on the Soviet Union’s inhuman foreign and domestic policies.

We would like to address the world’s leaders, their states and residents to express our grave concern and to ask them to look at the true political intentions of the 9th May 2005 event planned by President Putin.

We must take into account the Russian Federation’s current domestic and foreign policies. We find it necessary to remind everyone of the tragic history of the Baltic and other Central and Eastern European countries, from 1939 - 1991. Throughout that period, the Soviet Union was unhindered in committing the crimes of totalitarian Communism.

It is important that heads of government, in replying to President Putin’s invitation, make a clear distinction between honouring the heroism and sacrifice of the military and civilian populations alike, while disassociating themselves from the illegal occupation of the Baltic countries and the forced subjugation of Central and Eastern Europe.

With highest regards,
