In Greece, again talking about compensation for World War II

49
Athens will continue to seek from Berlin the return of the "occupation loan" and compensation for damage from the German occupation during the Second World War, reports RIA News Statement by the President of Greece Prokopis Pavlopoulos.




Pavlopoulos said this at a dinner in honor of the President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who arrived in Greece on an official visit.

At the beginning of his speech, he thanked Germany for support during the crisis years, calling her "a friend of Greece." But then he said that Athens put forward demands relating to the "occupation loan" and compensation for the destroyed infrastructure. According to the president, they are legally justified and subject to judicial review.

Pavlopoulos added that Greece does not make these demands unilaterally. On the contrary, it does this “in the context of a joint international and European legal culture”. And the legal culture prescribes the disputing parties to support their demands in a civilized court in a civilized manner.

Even before this dinner, Steinmeier during a meeting with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras apologized for the crimes of the Nazis during the war years.

Recall, Athens has long sought from Berlin for the return of forcibly taken "occupation loan" and compensation for damage from the occupation totaling about € 340 billion. The German authorities reject all claims, claiming that they have already fulfilled their obligations by listing 1960 million in 115. stamps.

Recently, German media reported that in Athens, adjusted the requirements for compensation, increasing the amount to € 376 billion.

          Bullshit .. The historical name of the current inhabitants of Greece-Hellenes .. And the fact that they are called Greeks is a misunderstanding .. There lived a Slavic tribe of goryachki. That's where they began to nicknamed Greeks for nothing .. So their pop-up assaults on the Macedonians fuss ...

      Hello! It's good for the Greeks to throw up ideas! Otherwise, they will remember Oleg the Prophet for us that "he hung his shield on the gates of Constantinople." And although the Turks shod them on this Constantinople a long time ago, they will demand money from us, there is enough sense.

        Good Greeks throw ideas! And then they will still remember Oleg Prophetic

        There is an old joke, as a vivid example of collecting old debts:
        For 3 months, the Pope receives an audience of 2 Jews from the Pope. They are regularly refused under various pretexts, but, seeing such perseverance, the Pope decided that the matter was very important and agreed to accept them. Invite these two to the pope’s office. They come in and one of them asks:
        -So you will be the very Pope?
        -Yes it's me.
        -Very well. Monya, show me ...
        The second one pulls out from his bosom and unfolds a rolled-up reproduction of the painting "The Last Supper"
        - Do you still recognize this picture and the people in it?
        - Of course I will. This is the last supper of Jesus with the apostles.
        -And do you have anything to do with these people?
        - Of course I have. We all pray and worship them every hour. No one is closer to them for me. And what, in fact, is the matter?
        - The fact is that this evening has not yet been paid ...

      He said during the dinner ... Steinmeier just got too excited over this dinner apparently. Trigger, milk, eggs ... well, as usual with the Germans.
      Here Pavlopoulos decided to suspend this disgrace with an innocent "compliment" about compensation. Managed. And then the whole Greek delegation giggled for a long time, naturally on the sidelines.

    Only now the joke-the Greeks need to demand compensation not from the Germans, who, by and large, were fighting in Crete, but from the "allies" - the Britons and the Americans, who actually caused the main destruction, for example, in Athens (in particular, they destroyed the Parthenon) and fighting not with the Germans. wink

    Already had enough.
    Greece intends to initiate a bill on financial claims against the Russian Federation. The relevant plans were voiced by politicians from the Golden Dawn party. We are talking about compensation for damage allegedly caused by the USSR during the Civil War in Greece. Then the confrontation between the left and right of Greece resulted in a bloody conflict, during which 158 Greeks died. It is worth noting that this claim of Athens can not be discounted for one reason.

    One could not have paid attention to this if the Golden Dawn were not the third most influential party in the Greek parliament, which has a “golden share” in the voting. And given the fact that her rating is constantly growing, in the upcoming parliamentary elections in a year, she can further strengthen her position.
