A serious omission, citing the Molotov-Ribbentropp is not to remember that Poland in the autumn of 1939 was divided not only between Germany and the USSR, but also from Lithuania. The Government of Kaunas, with the approval of Hitler and Stalin, it took possession of Wilno, drove away the Polish population, changed the name of the city and we moved the capital Vilnius. Lithuania is not never returned to Poland this territorial advantage. In 1945, thanks to Stalin, Soviet Lithuania also took Memel from Germany, drove out the German population and changed the name of the city Klaipeda. These favors are obtained thanks to Stalin's skeleton in the closet of Lithuania, improperly remembered as a victim instead of collaborationist USSR.
