State Duma MPS have created a working group to calculate the losses caused by Germany to the USSR during the WWII.
Mikhail Degtyarov, MP from the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia made the proposal on Tuesday',TASS reported. He expressed the belief that after the estimation is completed, reparations will amount to EUR 3-4 T.
"It appears that Germany paid compensations to 6 million victims of the Holocaust, but ignored 27 million USSR's people killed. We will require reparations, our group will count losses" – announced Dehtyarov.
A parallel was drawn between this idea and the way ''today's Germany continues inflicting damage on Russia as it presses forward with unlawful sanctions on the part of the EU.''
At the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) on Thursday, the Russian delegate took the decision of suspending its participation, due to the voted sanction depriving the country of voting rights.
Similarly, newly-elected Greek PM Alexis Tsipras also discussed reparation claims directed towards Germany, but the latter refused any possible payments.
Meanwhile, Russian lawmaker Nikolai Ivanov made a proposal on Wednesday for the condemnation of the annexation of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) by the Federative Republic of Germany (FRG) in 1989. MP in Russian parliament embraced the idea and issued an official statement in support of it.
