Project:

The Impact of Historical Revisionism on the Development of Contemporary Russo-Polish Relations

Different interpretations of the events of the Second World War undoubtedly became a crucial political factor in shaping Russo-Polish relations the 1990s and 2000s. My research objective is to determine the place and the role of historical revisionism concerning the first stage of WW II in both Poland and Russia, and to investigate its impact on the development of bilateral relations in the last two decades.
