Apparently the Soviet Union never existed until then
The neo-Nazi Bandera regime running Ukraine has made a fascinating historical discovery.
Contrary to the historical consensus heretofore, glorious Ukrainian historians have now concluded that the USSR did not exist until World War Two.
At least, that's the conclusion to be deduced from a map broadcast on Ukrainian TV channel TSN (Cyrillic: TCH).

This is incredible news, and should come as a huge relief to Ukrainians who previously believed their "nation" had been "invaded" by Russia in 1917 (civil war)....or 1654 (Pereyaslav)...or 1709 (Poltava)...or perhaps by Russian Amazons around 500 BC - depending on which venerable Ukrainian academic work you consult.
Due to this revelation that Russia first invaded Ukraine in 1939, we can now state unequivically that there was no "Holodomor" perpetrated by Russia against Ukraine in 1932 - nor were there any mass killings by Soviet NKVD of Ukrainians at Vinnytsia or other places in the 1930s.
Heartfelt congratulations to Ukrainians! Slava Ukraini! (Glory to Ukraine) Geroim Slava! (Glory to Heroes)
