All this has to be taken within the context of the Ukraine crisis and Greek monetary instability!
"Russian lawmakers will reevaluate Germany's reparations for WWII damage"
"MOSCOW, February 3. /TASS/. Deputies of the State Duma, the lower house of Russian parliament are setting up a workgroup that will calculate the damage that Germany inflicted on the Soviet Union during World War II, Izvestia daily said in an article published on Tuesday."
"Upon the completion of computations, the workgroup plans to issue a demand to Germany for reparations."
. . . .
"The USSR got some German assets, furniture, clothes and manufacturing equipment under Yalta agreements from the Soviet sector of control."
. . . .
"that the final amount of reparations to be paid to Russia, which is the legal successor to the USSR, will stand at €3-4 trillion [Euro]."
NO! A thousand times NO! Those "Trophy Brigades" marching with the Red Army almost literally took apart that Soviet Zone of Control in Germany in the aftermath of WW2. Laid bare the industrial base, factories and more or less anything of value looted, taken apart and sent back to the Soviet Union. Indeed, such activity common where ever the Red Army was victorious. Objects d'art hardly the only and unique item as sent back to the Soviet Union!
. . . .
Germany the wealthiest and most prosperous nation in the European Union and has been for some time. ALL THAT WAR GUILT AND REPARATIONS I HAVE THOUGHT A SETTLED MANNER FROM THE YALTA ACCORDS AND SUBSEQUENT!
I GUESS NOT!
