You mean possibly Finnish citizens. This does not answer the question.

comment Why did Britain and France not declare war against the Soviet Union when it invaded Poland in WW2?
@Felix Goldberg Britain would be in a very foolish situation if it declared war on the USSR in defense of Poland without Poland doing the same. The fact that Poland did not declare war indicates that they did not want the British doing the same all the more.

comment Were there in the USSR monasteries decorated with Soviet orders?
@Alex yet there were monasteries decorated with non-state orders. For example, the Korets monastery was decorated with Order of Saint Prince Vladimir of 1st degree in 1980, the order being instituted in 1957.

comment What was the source of the idea of a republic?
@jwenting this varied, but the most of emperor's power came from the position of popular tribune, which allowed to veto any senate's ruling.

comment What were the Nazi racial views on Hungarians and the Japanese?
Please do not make wrong edits. Slav and Slave ARE NOT etymologically connected. Slave is derived from Latin "sclavus" and cognate to "conclave", "enclave", "clavis" etc.

comment What historical reasons did the Nazi's have to hate the Jews? How did they identify non-practicing Jews?
Yes there were such booklets, but they were not used for any official purposes. In Germany Jews were identified as people who or whose ancestors professed Judaism after 1871. There were tools for "racial test", but they were used to test if a Slav was suitable for Germanization, not for identifying Jews.

@jwenting did I say anything wrong? Can you prove otherwise?
