Poland reminded Germany about reparations due to increased defense expenditures 15:51

Polish Deputy Foreign Minister Arkadiusz Mularczyk reminded Germany that it should pay compensation after German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced that defense expenditures would be increased to 2% of GDP. He wrote this on his page social network X (formerly Twitter).

“Before the German army can again assume responsibility for the security and future of Europe, it must answer for the initiative it had previously undertaken in 1939-1945. Warsaw, Wieluń, Jaslo and other cities are still waiting…” wrote Mularczyk, implying the need for financial compensation for the destruction suffered during the Second World War.

Former German Chancellor Olaf Scholz stated By increasing the country’s defense spending, Berlin will reach NATO’s spending target of 2% of GDP in 2024.

“We need an army that can defend our country,” Scholz said.

The Polish side demands about 1.5 trillion dollars from Germany as compensation for the consequences of World War II. The official rejection of reparations by Warsaw, signed in the 50s of the last century, is considered invalid by the current authorities. According to Polish officials, the document was allegedly submitted by the Soviet Union and also concerns states that no longer exist (East Germany and the Polish People’s Republic). At the same time, Germany has repeatedly noted that it will not make any payments to Warsaw.

Previously Poland promised to continue seeking compensation from Germany.
