The latest development in the International field is the entry of the U.S.S.R. into the Polish Ukraine. The Ukranian minority consists of some 3¼ million people, who have (If reference is made to "Salient," March 22, "Obituary") suffered severely from Polish quarters. The U.S.S.R. occupation may indicate that the latter is determined firstly to re-incorporate that strip of Soviet soil surrendered by Lenin to Poland in 1921 to secure peace, and secondly to forestall the realising of what Hitler said at the Nuremberg Parfeist, 1938, namely: "If the Urals with their incalculable wealth of raw materials, the rich forest of Siberia and the unending cornfields of the Ukraine my within Germany, under National Socialist leadership, the country would swim In plenty."
