Finland and Continuation War[edit]

Particularly in Finland, the dictated border adjustment was perceived as a major injustice and a betrayal by the Western Powers, after the sympathy Finland had received from the West during the Soviet-initiated Winter War of 1939 - 1940. However, this sympathy had been eroded by Finland's decision to join in Nazi Germany's attack on the Soviet Union, making it one of Hitler's most valuable allies.

Finland did never take part of the German attack on USSR (June 22, 1941), the Finnish army didn't take part of the war until the Red Army attacked Finland (June 25, 1941), and didn't launch it's attack on USSR untill July 9, 1941. Whereby the statement that Finland had taken part of the attack on USSR ain't true, even if USSR spread such propaganda. --Trizt 18:55, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

Very good point you make, Trizt. This paragraph needs to be rewritten from a neutral point of view, not as a rehash of Soviet propaganda. Turgidson 14:49, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Question

I read: Finland is the only country listed which has fully paid war reparations. Romania ultimately paid about 2 billion USD in goods and money, six times more than the amount stated in the treaty. [[The country]] was under Soviet occupation until 1958.

My question is: what country was occupied until 1958: Finland or Romania ? To me this does not quite become clear. Please replace "The country" by the name of the country you mean in this case. Thanks a lot. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Willibald59 (talkcontribs) 20:00, 6 November 2009 (UTC)

Contradiction[edit]

Was Finland the only country to pay in full? This contradicts the next sentence where it says that Romania paid six times the amount.--Sus scrofa (talk) 13:03, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Now that you mention it, the first part appears incorrect as well - according to Finnish war reparations to the Soviet Union, Finland did not have to pay its reparations in full, because, after the signing of Finno-Soviet Treaty of 1948, the total amount of reparations due was cut by 25% --illythr (talk) 17:13, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

"Italy lost its colonies", but what about Italian Somaliland?[edit]

The article states that under the terms of the treaty, "Italy lost its colonies; Italian East Africa (consisting of Ethiopia, Eritrea and Italian Somaliland) and Italian Libya in North Africa". However, Italy continued to govern Italian Somaliland as a UN trust territory until 1960. I understand that Italian Somaliand as it was constituted before the war was dissolved, but the Italians still governed the territory under this UN system. Or does that not qualify as a colony? My broader question: is the article as it's currently written accurate with respect to Italy's colonies. Tigercompanion25 (talk) 23:46, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
