Appeal Over Katyn Massacre

A Polish-Russian Committee for Problem Issues has appealed to the authorities of both countries to clarify the circumstances surrounding the 1940 Katyn massacre of Polish officers and other servicemen by the Soviet NKVD secret police.

The issue was among the most important topics discussed by the committee during its two-day meeting in Moscow Oct. 27-28.

Adam D. Rotfeld, former Polish foreign minister and head of the Polish delegation, said it was now up to politicians to decide what should be done in this area. Anatoly Torkunov, head of the international affairs institute in Moscow and leader of the Russian delegation, expressed a similar view.

The committee also approved a plan to launch two publications-one devoted to Polish-Russian relations from 1918 to the present day, and the other dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the 1939 Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact and the Soviet invasion of Poland in September 1939.

The committee deals with the most painful issues in Polish-Russian relations. It was revived in December last year at the request of Polish foreign minister Radosław Sikorski and his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.
