Sir,—Australia's large migrant
population from Eastern
Europe, must have heard the
Prime Minister's views on the
necessity for Australian-Russian
understanding with great
interest. The part dealing with
Russia's assistance in bringing
about non-aggression pacts
among countries to Australia's
north is particularly significant,
It is obvious that Mr Gorton
knows very little about Eastern
European history, and particu-
larly about Russia's "non-
aggression pacts" with the Baltic
countries of Estonia. Latvia and
Lithuania. Russia forced non-
aggression pacts upon these
unwilling States in October,
1939, when their fate had already

of these Stales followed in June,
1940. It is hardly surprising that
the Balts view any Russian-
inspired treaties with suspicion.
The events of August, 1968,
should have been enough warn-
ing to the Australian Govern-
ment of the value of Soviet
words. In invading an allied
country of the Warsaw Pact, the
Soviet Union and its allies broke
both the terms of the Warsaw
Pact and the agreements of
Cierna and Bratislava. A nation
which can in this way break its
word to an ally can hardly be
trusted to keep the peace in the
Asian area.
If the Liberal Government
does not wish to alienate those
immigrant voters who still sup-
port it. it would do well to study
relations in the years between
the wars. That its policies of
have not changed in the years
after World War If is shown
clearly from the events in Hun-
gary in 1956 and in Czecho-
Slovakia in 1968. There is no
reason to believe that the Soviet
Government will suffer a change
of heart just on Australia's
account.
