Warsaw is going to continue to discuss Berlin with the theme of reparations for the damage caused to the Republic during the Second world war. This was stated on Monday the Minister of foreign Affairs of Poland Jacek Czaputowicz at a joint press conference with his German colleague Heiko Maas, reports TASS.
“We have a sense of injustice (…) If we compare the losses suffered by Poland during the Second world war and that the country received as reparations, with other countries, it is striking disparity. It is necessary to speak,” he explained.
The subject of reparations began to be discussed in Poland from July 2017, when the leader of the party “Law and justice” Jaroslaw Kaczynski said that “the country has never refused compensation from Germany.” Who was then the Minister of national defence, Anthony Macierewicz said that from a legal point of view, in Warsaw there is every reason to demand reparations from Berlin.
The German authorities have repeatedly stated that I see no reason for any payments, as in 1953, the Polish authorities officially refused reparations.
In March of this year it became known, the Polish government estimated the damage from the actions of the Third Reich during the Second world war, almost a trillion dollars.
