FILE - A picture taken just after the liberation by the Soviet army in January, 1945, shows a group of children wearing concentration camp uniforms behind barbed wire fencing in the Auschwitz Nazi concentration camp.  On Thursday Jan. 22, 2015, Russia accused Poland of engaging in a “mockery of history” after the Polish foreign minister Grzegorz Schetyna credited Ukrainian soldiers, rather than the Soviet Red Army, with liberating Auschwitz 70-years ago. The latest exchange comes prior to the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by Soviet troops on Jan. 27, 1945, underlining deep tensions between Russia and Poland, which is hugely critical of Russia's recent actions in Ukraine.
