Russia Demands Money From Germany For World War Ii War Crimes

Recommended Posts

Russia is currently calculating how much money to demand from Germany for World War II reparations it was reported this week. Germany has paid billions of dollars to Isreal since 1952 for Nazi war crimes but has not paid Russia anything to date.

...Germany should pay 3 or 4 trillion euros to Russia for the “destruction and atrocities” that Germany committed during World War II,

“Germany paid compensation for 6 million victims of the Holocaust, but has ignored the 27 million Soviet people who were killed [during World War II], 16 million of whom were civilians,”

The Russian people should first look to get compensation from the state for the atrocities committed by Stalin and Lenin - IMHO.

But I guess Russia is just ganging up (behind Greece) to give it to the Germans - the bullies and cowards that they are.

When are the Normans, Vikings and Romans going to compensate us?

You speak a pure blooded Celt then?

If so you may be on the hook for reparations to a fellow countryman who has an unbroken line of decent to the original ancient Britons...whom the Celts displaced when they migrated to Great Britain. :rolleyes:

Well, there's a fair story of double-standards in there. Lots of people have suffered huge deprivations in world events, and probably none worse than the Russians over the centuries.

I guess the comparison of Israel to Russia is like that of BP compensation to rich americans over an oil spill, vs Union Carbide non-compensation to poor blighted people in Bhopal.

It could run and run

Wikipedia has a list of empires. Countless unsuccessful invasions etc would have to be added on top.

I hope Merkel reminds Putin that they already took a fair chunk of reparations off the GDR.

It was estimated that by 1949, 100 per cent of the automotive, between 90% to 100% of the chemical, and 93% of the fuel industries were in Soviet hands. By the end of 1950 East Germany had paid $3.7 bn of Russia's $10 bn reparations demand.

No. That was netted off from the Nazis atrocities during the war.

What about the Soviet atrocities from 1945 till now? Poland, Czech Rep., Hungary, Baltics, Georgia, Ukraine? The list of Soviet crimes and abuse is endless ... :(:(:(
