In Poland, they admitted that they could demand reparations from Russia

The head of the Bureau of International Policy of the Office of the President of Poland Marcin Przydac said that Warsaw may demand reparations from Russia.

“We believe that we can start a dialogue with Berlin, but with Putin it is a different civilization. As soon as success is achieved with Germany, the next step may be the beginning of such a discussion with another oppressor,” he said, answering the question why Warsaw does not demand reparations from Russia.

The Polish authorities in October last year demanded 6.2 trillion zlotys (about 1.3 trillion dollars) from Germany as reparations for damage from World War II, but Germany refused to discuss this issue.

Berlin stressed that quite large reparations had already been paid and there was no reason to question Warsaw’s refusal to pay in 1953.
