If we calculate the amounts spent by the USSR to rebuild infrastructure Poland after the World War II, then the total GDP of this country is not enough to reimburse it, as the Deputy Chairman of the Committee on International Affairs Aleksei Chepa
Alexey Vasilievich told journalists.
Earlier, the leader of the Polish ruling party, Law and Justice (PiS), Jarosław Kaczyński, said that Russia and Germany were obliged to pay compensation to Poland for World War II damage.
“After the end of World War II, the Soviet Union invested tremendous funds to rebuild the railways, the entire infrastructure of Poland, at a time when our people were starving … If you calculate the amounts, turn into cash, you find out that Poland’s total GDP is not enough to reimburse the total amount,” Aleksei Chepa stressed.
The parliamentarian noted that he does not want to make such calculations, because this is wrong. The people of the USSR saved human lives, the lives of people of Poland are priceless. And the Poles, in turn, prefer to talk about money “about dollars”, while comparing the USSR with the Nazis.
“It's a shame to hear such words from Polish politicians who, as we can see, don’t know that 2 million 600 thousand Russian soldiers and officers had liberated Poland during the World War II. More than 600 thousand of our compatriots died on the battlefields. At the same time, there were tasks to save the cities and the civilian population, while the Americans bombed mercilessly, our soldiers and officers protected the civilians,” concluded Aleksei Chepa.
