Putin Calls Nazi-Soviet Pact Immoral

That was quite surprising after the contrariness of his pet president:

MOSCOW — Russia’s prime minister, Vladimir V. Putin, has published a lengthy article characterizing the Nazi-Soviet pact to divide Poland at the outset of World War II in 1939 as immoral, but he stressed that it was just one of a series of such deals that countries struck with the Nazis at that time.
Hard to disagree, even if it reminds some people of Munich.
