Moscow saw on 9th May 2005 huge celebrations of victory against Nazi 
Germany. But many Europeans considered that the phrase "Stalin 
liberated Europe" lacks it's continuation "and imposed the comunist 
rule in the Eastern Europe". Celebration of 9th May in Moscow 
acknowledged only partially the sufferings of European people. 
Ribbentrop Molotov Pact represents the roots of European destruction 
during the 20th century.

Signed on 23 August 1939, Ribbentrop Molotov Pact had an Additional 
Protocol which stated that:

Article I. In the event of a territorial and political rearrangement 
in the areas belonging to the Baltic States (Finland, Estonia, 
Latvia, Lithuania), the northern boundary of Lithuania shall 
represent the boundary of the spheres of influence of Germany and 
U.S.S.R. In this connection the interest of Lithuania in the Vilna 
area is recognized by each party.
Article II. In the event of a territorial and political rearrangement 
of the areas belonging to the Polish state, the spheres of influence 
of Germany and the U.S.S.R. shall be bounded approximately by the 
line of the rivers Narev, Vistula and San.
The question of whether the interests of both parties make desirable 
the maintenance of an independent Polish States and how such a state 
should be bounded can only be definitely determined in the course of 
further political developments.
In any event both Governments will resolve this question by means of 
a friendly agreement.
Article III. With regard to Southeastern Europe attention is called 
by the Soviet side to its interest in Bessarabia. The German side 
declares its complete political disinteredness in these areas.
Article IV. This protocol shall be treated by both parties as 
strictly secret.

As a consequence of Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact, signed by the fascist 
Germany and Stalinist USSR, entire countries or territories belonging 
to East European countries have been occupied by force by the Soviet 
Red Army, and incorporated in USSR. 
Not only the Baltic States and Eastern Poland entered the Stalinist 
rule, but also Bessarabia, Bukovina and Hertza Region, all former 
Romanian provinces. Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact assured Hitler of USSR 
neutrality, paving the way for his agression in the Western Europe.

Ribbentrop Molotov Pact broke all international rules and made 
possible the ascendence of nazi and stalinist tyrany in Europe. In 
spite of this, the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact has not yet been denounced 
nor annulled by Germany, Russia and Ukraine, the main heirs of 
European USSR.

Yalta conference in February 1945 set the borders between the free 
world and the soviet empire. Before this conference UK prime minister 
Winston Churchill met Stalin in Moscow on 9 October 1944. Churchill 
recalls this meeting as follows (Triumph & Tragedy, Houghton Mifflin, 
Boston, 1953, page 226):

"We alighted at Moscow on the afternoon of October 9... At ten 
o'clock that night we held our first important meeting at the 
Kremlin. There were only Stalin, Molotov, Eden, and I... The moment 
was apt for business, so I said, "Let us settle about our affairs in 
the Balkans. Your armies are in Rumania and Bulgaria. We have 
interests, missions and agents there. Don't let us get at cross-
purposes in small ways. So far as Britain and Russia are concerned, 
how would it do for you to have ninety per cent predominance in 
Rumania, for us to have ninety per cent of the say in Greece, and go 
fifty-fifty about Yugoslavia?" While this was being translated I 
wrote out on a half-sheet of paper:
--- Russia ---------- 90 %
--- The others ----- 10 %
--- Great Britain--- 90 % (in accord with U.S.A.)
--- Russia ---------- 10 %
Yugoslavia --------- 50-50 %
Hungary ----------- 50-50 %
--- Russia ---------- 75 %
--- The others ----- 25 %
I pushed this across to Stalin, who had by then heard the 
translation. There was a slight pause. Then he took his blue pencil 
and made a large tick upon it, and passed it back to us. It was 
settled in no more time than it takes to set down..."

Recent political events entitle us to hope for a change in the 
attitude towards the roots of evil in Europe. Georgia's President 
Mikhail Saakashvili asked recently for a new Yalta conference in 
order to establish new foundations for a new Europe. Latvia's 
Parliament passed a bill asking Moscow to acknowledge it's moral, 
legal and financial responsability for the stalinist crimes.
U.S. President George W. Bush said on May 7 in Latvia that the 1945 
Yalta agreement had led to "one of the greatest wrongs of history," - 
when the Soviet Union imposed its harsh rule on Central and Eastern 
Europe. "We will not repeat the mistakes of other generations, 
appeasing or excusing tyranny, and sacrificing freedom in the vain 
pursuit of stability," the president said. "We have learned our 
lesson; no one's liberty is expendable. In the long run, our security 
and true stability depend on the freedom of others."

Therefore we are asking:

The leaders of Germany, Russia and Ukraine to denounce and recognize 
the annulment of the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact as a small compensation 
for the injustice that all the Eastern European countries suffered.

The leaders of all European countries to support a new Yalta 
conference to establish a Europe without tyrants.
