that will go nowhere and everybody and their grandmom knows that
Kaczyński is just trying to score brownie points with his "patriotic" electorate. And in any case, it's a win-win situation for him: if Germany pays, brilliant
- they will buy some more tanks and HIMARS launchers and will be able to declare historic success; if Germany doesn't pay, brilliant
- they will talk ad nauseam about heartless descendants of nazi war criminals ("they never really changed", "if only they had the chance they would do it again", "it's all a conspiracy against Poland" blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda) and they'll be able to rally and consolidate their iron electorate (and maybe fool some "neutrals" into their camp too); it will also be an argument to use against German dominated EU and their sanctions against Poland. So, for PiS it's a win-win. For Poland, on the other hand, it means long legal struggle, doomed to failure from the very beginning, and worsening relations with our largest trade partner. :-/
I used to think that Kaczyński is a bit off his rocker but he loves Poland and wouldn't do anything to hurt her. However, in recent years I see more and more often that he puts his own phobias, greed for power, and narrow party business ahead of Poland's vital interests. The man has to go.
P.S. And I still think that Kaczynski should demand something like $100 trillion. He would get nothing anyway, but at least the number would look respectable. One trillion is a slap in the face to Poland and all the survivors of WW2.
