MEP from Poland demanded to demolish a monument to Lenin in Germany

Polish MEP Elzbieta Kruk was outraged by the installation of a monument to Vladimir Lenin in the German city of Gelsenkirchen, demanding to demolish the monument and ban communist symbols, RT reports.


Kruk sent a demand to the European Commission, stating that the installation of the monument violates the 2019 resolution of the European Parliament, calling for a pan-European condemnation of Nazism, Stalinism and other crimes of "totalitarian regimes."

It is outrageous that Lenin, the first leader of Soviet Russia and a criminal, who, according to historians, is responsible for the deaths of up to six million people, is honored in seemingly democratic Germany, with whose assistance he came to Russia, and after him the revolution

- said the MEP from Poland.

The document states that "the communist regimes in total are responsible for the deaths of about 100 million people, which makes communism one of the bloodiest systems in stories humanity ".

In his inquiry, Kruk wonders if the MEPs think that communist symbols should be banned in the EU, and whether the EP will take any steps to demolish the Lenin monument in Germany. She also "expressed fears" that Germany is "returning to its totalitarian traditions."

On June 20, 2020, at the suggestion of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Germany (MLPD), a 2-meter monument to Vladimir Lenin was erected in the German city of Gelsenkirchen.

    I look at the Poles burns so that the glow is already visible in Vladik. By the way, the fact that the Poles are trying to bite the Germans is good.

        Not the fact that a Polish girl, IMHO judging by the name, comes from Polish Western Ukrainians ... I even knew a couple of Krukov - Ukrainians.

            Who cares who she is by nationality?
            The main thing is that she does not have enough brains to understand that an active struggle against dissent is one of the main signs of totalitarianism.
            And therefore, her requirements look quite inadequate.

            It’s real as a quote tag

              In my opinion, for the modern world it is quite adequate. In the USA, you can get a bullet for a dispute with the police and the policeman will always be right.
              And in the territories of vassals, you can revive any regimes (up to fascist and terrorist, Syria and Ukraine) In the hands of the Americans, this is such a normal tool for rewriting history. It voices other people's thoughts for money, venality of politicians is nothing new.

                Teachings of Marx, Engels

                well, did you even read them?
                revelation from Marx:
                “Regarding Poland, I read with great interest the essay of Elias Regno ... From this book it is clear that Lapinsky's dogma that the Great Russians are not Slavs is defended by Mr. Dukhinsky in the most serious way from the linguistic, historical, ethnographic, etc. points of view; claims that real Muscovites ... mostly Mongols or Finns, etc. ... From this book it is clear, in any case, that the case was very worried about the Petersburg cabinet (for it would decisively put an end to Pan-Slavism). All Russian scientists were encouraged to write answers and objections, but the latter turned out to be in fact infinitely weak.The argument about the purity of the Great Russian dialect and its closeness to Church Slavonic in these debates seemed to testify more in favor of the Polish concept than the Muscovite. During the last Polish uprising, Dukhinsky received a prize from the National Government for his "Discoveries" ... The conclusions to which Dukhinsky comes: the name Rus has been usurped by the Muscovites. They are not Slavs and generally not They belong to the Indo-Germanic race, they are illegally intruders, who need to be driven across the Dnieper again, etc. Pan-Slavism in the Russian sense is an invention of the cabinet.
                I would like Dukhinsky to be right and that at least this view would prevail among the Slavs "
                Marx — Engels, June 24, 1865

                revelation from Engels:
                "Pan-Slavism has now turned from a symbol of faith into a political program, with 800 bayonets at its disposal. It confronts Europe with an alternative: either the conquest of it by the Slavs, or the destruction of forever the center of its offensive force - Russia"
                F. Engels - “Germany and Pan-Slavism” (1855)

                from the same place (F. Engels - “Germany and Pan-Slavism”):
                And if Bakunin, in the end, exclaims: “Verily, the Slav should not lose anything, but should win! Truly, he must live! And we will live. While at least the smallest part of our rights will be disputed, while at least a single member of our common organism remains separated or torn from us, until we fight to the end, until we fight mercilessly not for life but for death, until finally, Slavism will not become great, free and independent, ”if revolutionary pan-Slavism takes these words seriously and renounces revolution wherever it comes to fantastic Slavic nationality, then we will know what to do.
                Then the struggle, the “merciless struggle not for life but death” with the Slavs betraying the revolution, the struggle for extermination and merciless terrorism - not in the interests of Germany, but in the interests of the revolution!

                and if you look at all their literary activity, then in general ...

          Lenin spoke excellent German, lived for a long time in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, had relations with the German General Staff and in every possible way contributed to the conclusion of the Brest Peace in the interests of Germany and its allies

            Well, why be ashamed? The Provisional Government initiated an investigation, which found that not only was related to the General Staff, but also received funding. So the Germans reasonably erected a monument. I would not be surprised if a bust of Gorbachev was bungled for his merits in some place.

          You have a short memory of communists, you demolished monuments to tsars, and one of the first was the decree on renaming. How many Russian churches were blown up? The Cathedral of Christ the Savior, built with public money in honor of the Victory over Napoleon, was demolished. Say thank you for not blowing up your mausoleum. Are there not enough Lenin monuments in the country for you?

    Every time I read this and every time I regret that I.V. Stalin made a mistake, territorially "cutting off" East Germany in favor of the Poles (and in favor of the Czech "brothers", which is already there) sad .

    Lenin is the father of a modern independent Polish state. He deserved a 20 meter high monument in the center of Warsaw.
    Stalin is the savior and benefactor of the Polish state, but his Palace of Culture is still standing.

    We must end this dichotomy of Stalinism-anti-Stalinism. Stalin - the story. It is necessary to study it, and not to fight it. And Ulyanov-Lenin too. And not only ours, but also the world. Hands off history, panov!

    Unfortunately, Russophobia killed the ability of many Polish politicians to think. I am a Pole and now I am ashamed again. This lady has become famous for drunkenness in the Polish parliament, and now she discredits us in the international arena. Fighting monuments is stupid, and although Lenin is not an idol, to put it mildly, we would have destroyed most of the monuments (including the Arc de Triomphe, also represented by the winners in the conquered territory)

      Why are you ashamed? Everyone is responsible for themselves. In general, this should be treated more calmly, especially if God did not give horns to a vigorous cow.

        Theoretically, you are right - Everyone is responsible for himself - but the deputy not only speaks for himself - he is also a showcase of his country - in my opinion, a poor showcase. And that is why I am ashamed - and I am also angry, because the statements of this lady are neither wise nor representative of all Poles.
        Unfortunately, the desire to please her electoral group harms our relations with Russia and, therefore, the interests of my homeland.

      There are a lot of Polish plumbers in Germany. These are hidden agents of the Polish intelligence services. If Germany persists, at the appointed time all the funnel pipes in the houses of the Germans will be clogged and shit will flow through the streets.

      Poland is not obliged to Lenin (if you are talking about the restoration of Polish statehood). Poland owes France and England and a little bit to the inability of the Russian statehood to maintain the status quo in Europe for a long time. Ukraine really emerged thanks to the Brest Peace. This is an old Habsburg project that was implemented by the Germans.

    Poles should be grateful to Lenin.
    This is what he writes in 1914, after the start of the war with Germany, as a true Vlasovite.
    6) The task of the social democracy in Russia is especially, and first of all, a merciless and unconditional struggle against Great Russian and tsarist-monarchist chauvinism and its sophistic defense by Russian liberals, Cadets, part of the populists and other bourgeois parties. From the point of view of the working class and the working masses of all the peoples of Russia, the least evil would be the defeat of the tsarist monarchy and its troops, oppressing Poland, Ukraine and a number of peoples of Russia and inciting national enmity in order to increase the oppression of the Great Russians over other nationalities and to strengthen the reactionary and barbaric government of the tsarist monarchy.
