PGiX was made irrelevant, because of Polish obstinacy. At the negotiating table, if you keep ignoring the signals you get from your partners, that's what happens. Russian's "don't surrender"; So the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk was an invitation to party. The war of 1921 was actually a Russian victory, which is why they acceded territory. The Russo-Japanese war of 1905, was just a trick to lure Japanese. This same Russian culture of never surrendering, must be why so many Russian soldiers were captured at Kiev... The Soviet regime would just keep on profiting just fine. Whether a ceasefire, a return to '41 borders, or whichever else Stalin decided. And again, it doesn't really matter what the agreement looked like, just that there was a risk, that the West needed to mitigate. Post your complaints about accusations of Polish profiteering in that thread. Modern Poland was never on par economically with Western Europe prior to WW2 and wouldn't be regardless. Nothing Britain did or said, was going to prevent either USSR or Nazi Germany taking over of Poland. The Alliance could not afford to lose Soviet participation. After the conquest of France, reality was looking grim for Poland. Without the Soviets, the war could easily have dragged on many more years, and Poland would ultimately still face Soviet occupation. It's somehow incredible how Poles imagine some kind of free liberation with retained borders and unhindered economy, with anything less than that, a betrayal by Churchill. And if we are going to bring post-WW2 arguments; If Poland still had unresolved border disputes with Belorus and Ukraine, it wouldn't even be in the EU. That would've been Churchill's fault too.
