Warsaw estimated war losses caused by Germany in excess of PLN 6 billion 220 billion. On Tuesday, Poland sent a diplomatic note to about 50 NATO countries, the European Union and the European Council on the matter.
Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Arkadiusz Mularczyk emphasized at the press conference that it was important for Poland’s partners in the international arena to know the reasons why Warsaw asked Berlin for war compensation. Moreover, Germany still has not officially responded to the Polish note sent earlier that October. – International opinion, politicians, diplomats and especially our partner foreign ministries, should know the real reasons for our claims and that Poland has not actually received any compensation since the end of World War II – noted Mularczyk.

It is a state decision Polandso our actions will be consistent on this matter. We carry out informative and diplomatic activities. If it is not effective, then we will take legal action – announce the deputy head MFA.
He added that the issue of compensation for Poland is also important in light of ongoing discussions about Russia’s responsibility for the war in Ukraine. – We are sure that the decision of the Polish government (…) will form the basis of an open debate about compliance with international law, the rule of law and human rights by the German state. And more broadly, for discussions about compensation, about compensation, which is very important today in the context of the ongoing war in Ukraine, when there is so much talk about the fact that Russia will have to pay compensation for the destruction of Ukraine. We believe that Germany should pay compensation to Poland for the consequences of the Second World War – explained Arkadiusz Mularczyk.
