East Germany paid for the West....
I can understand that. No country likes, when other countries talk about reparations. Personally, I feel uneasy when Poles talk about reparations from the side of Ukraine for property they've lost. Even so I don't live in Ukraine and don't suppose to care. But on other hand Germany is so-o rich and powerful, that it could easily help to enitire Eastern Europe without any serious losses. For example, by making profitable investments, building factories and sharing technologies. For now only new members of EU are benefiting from something like this, but even they, probably, insufficiantly. One of the few positive examples:
"The Gyor plant (in Hungary) manufactured 1.97 million engines and 164,817 units of the Q3 SUV model family last year. Investments of more than 11.5 billion euros have been made at the facility since Audi started production in the country in 1993."
By the way, Russia still has to pay out giant debt to US and UK, that it accumulated during WWII. And this giant debt have not been cancelled! There was Land Lease program.
And only recently Russia paid out debt it accumulated during WW I, while it didn't receive any reparations from Germany for gigantic human and material losses in this war.
