Poland will soon "bill" Germany for damage caused during World War II. This was stated by Polish President Andrzej Duda during commemorative events on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the German attack on Poland, reports Der Spiegel.
Duda emphasized that German reparations are a “matter of responsibility and morality,” since World War II caused great damage to Poland.
According to the President of Poland, in 2017, a parliamentary commission on reparations was established in the country. The commission will soon publish its final report on the total number of reparations that Germany will have to pay.
In addition, Duda noted that, despite the events of the past, Poland and Germany now have good relations, which are an "example to follow."
Earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky proposed to his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda build a “common reconciliation memorial” on the border between Ukraine and Poland. Zelensky said this after a meeting with Duda in Warsaw.
"I offered to President Dude to build a common reconciliation memorial on the border between Ukraine and Poland," Zelensky said.
He added that Kyiv and Warsaw do not close their eyes to the common tragic pages of the past.
"Today, President Duda and I very frankly discussed all the historical, tragic problems," he said.
