Katyn Massacre
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katyn_massacre
 "The massacre was prompted by NKVD chief Lavrentiy Beria's proposal
to execute all captive members of the Polish officer corps, dated 5
March 1940, approved by the Politburo of the Communist Party of the
Soviet Union, including its leader, Joseph Stalin. The number of
victims is estimated at about 22,000. The victims were executed in the
Katyn Forest in Russia, the Kalinin and Kharkiv prisons, and
elsewhere."
 . . .
 "A number of Russian historians and organizations such as "Memorial"
openly admit the Soviet responsibility, pointing out inconsistencies
in the alternative versions - primarily the fact that another major
mass execution site in Mednoye was never under German occupation and
contained remains of victims originating from the same camps as those
killed in Katyn, killed at the same time, and even though it was only
exhumed in 90's it contained well preserved Polish uniforms,
documents, souvenirs as well as Soviet newspapers dated 1940."
