Polish President Andrzej Duda said that Germany must pay reparations to Poland for the damage caused by World War II. He stated about it in an interview to Bild am Sonntag.

“As far as I understand it, the topic of reparations is not yet closed,” the president said.

He mentioned the expert findings of the ex-President of Poland Lech Kaczynski, from which it follows that the losses inflicted on Poland were not compensated. In particular, we are talking about losses incurred by Warsaw.

"The interim results of the work of the parliamentary expert group also confirm that our damage was not compensated. Therefore, this is a question of truth and responsibility," said Duda.

Earlier, Arkadiusz Mularczyk, head of the parliamentary committee on reparations, a deputy from the Polish "Law and Justice" party, said that Poland has the right to demand compensation in the amount of $ 850 billion from Germany for property destroyed and people killed during World War II.

Germany rejected the Polish demand for new negotiations on the payment of additional reparations for the damage caused to the country during World War II, noting that this problem was already resolved in 1953.
