Russia And Poland Engage In Twitter Battle Over Who Started WWII

The Russian Embassy in South Africa revisited an 80-year-old conflict with Poland on Tuesday, with a tweet.

It was a denial of responsibility for the 1939 invasion of Poland, which started World War II.

The tweet came as the Polish Embassy in South Africa commemorated the anniversary of the USSR's invasion.

But Russian embassy in South Africa didn't let Poland's tweet go without a denial.
