On the Question of Western Frontier of Poland

Russian Proposal Presented to Foreign Ministers July 20, 19451

We have considered the question of western frontier of Poland and have, taking in consideration ethnographical and historic conditions recognized it necessary and equitable, pending the final settlement of territorial questions at the Peace Congress, the western frontier of Poland to fix along the line marked on the attached map2 viz: west of Swinemünde to the river Oder leaving Stettin on the Polish side, further up the river Oder to the estuary of the river West Neisse to the Czechoslovakian frontier.
