06 May 2005 Europe to Moscow: Apologize
From the Boston Globe:
Reuters – Baltic nations urged Moscow on Friday to apologize for five decades of Soviet occupation, hours before the arrival of President Bush on a trip to fete new democracies and the 1945 victory over the Nazis.
In Brussels, the European Union sided with the three Baltic countries against the Kremlin by saying that the collapse of the Berlin Wall, rather than the defeat of Nazi Germany, marked the “end of dictatorship” in Europe…
Fat chance Putin would have this kind of integrity, but it is nice to see the truth spoken — with the EU chiming in on the right side, no less.
