Best Answer

When the map of Europe was redrawn at the end of WWI the border between Russia and Poland was known as the "Curzon line" after the British foreign secretary who negotiated the settlement.However the countries were involved in a short conflict after the war had ended which resulted in the Polish conquest of Russian territory.The Red Army when it advanced into Poland in 1940 only advanced as far as the Curzon line which marked the former boundary between the two countries and therefore only reclaimed what was rightfully Russian territory rather than conquering sovereign Polish territory and thereby avoided a confrontation with Britain and France.
