According to the Deputy of the Sejm of Poland Jan Moshenskogo, in 1921 the Russian Soviet Federative socialist Republic (RSFSR) and Poland signed the Riga Treaty and signed an agreement ending the Soviet-Polish war, which required the allocation of Warsaw 30 million rubles in gold, but this immense sum fell into oblivion and was never paid, according to “Polish radio”.
According to Moshenskogo, Russia “as the successor of the Soviet Union” is now obliged to think about the details of the Riga Treaty and to compensate the caused damage to Poland. This Polish deputies intend to bring Russia to the negotiating table to seek justice.
Earlier, the Polish authorities declared that intend to demand compensation from Germany for damages caused by the Nazi Third Reich during the Second world war. The head of government of Poland Beata Szydlo called on Germans to “remember history” and answer for their actions in the “Polish occupation”.
Poland after 1945 “have spent trillions zlotys” to rebuild the country after world war II – the responsibility for this lies heavily on the shoulders of Germany. During the occupation of Nazi Germany, Poland lost a fifth of its population, and many cities, including Warsaw, was nearly destroyed.
However, the German authorities responded by saying that Poland had voluntarily renounced military payments in 1953 and the question for Germany is long closed. According to experts, it is about 45 billion euros.
