    On this day day at 4.00am, the Red Army invaded Poland across its eastern border to "liberate" and "protect" Belorussians and Ukrainians living in the Eastern Poland from their "Polish Masters".
    This came as a suprise and made regrouping of remaining Polish forces an impossible task.
    Soviet invasion was part of Ribbentrop-Molotov pact signed on August 23rd of 1939, which included a non-aggression and trade agreement, and a secret protocol that provided for a German-Soviet partition of Poland and cleared the way for the Soviet occupation of the Baltic states.
    Lost territories with rich Polish history were never returned and instead Poland received territories of the former Third Reich.
