Germany should pay reparations to Ukraine for Nazi Germany's WWII destruction of Ukraine's infrastructure and murders of millions of Ukrainians.

You silly gooe. You haven't learned anything from History.
The world tried the reparations route after WWI and the result was the destruction of the Weimar Republic, the rise of Hitler, and World War II. Fortunately the they prevented another similar catatrophe.

Now you want to start whining about reparations. Go climb on your soapbox somewhere else. Thinking people don't want to listen to your tripe.

You're whining again. How about all the damage done to Germany?
Everyone loses in a war and trying to keep the pot boiling afterward is rather immature.

The real damage was not done by the Nazis but by the Soviets. Parts of Germany were destroyed in the war but they were rebuilt. Germany lost land to Poland, Poland lost land to present-day Belarus and Ukraine. Thing is, Germany managed to rebuild itself while countries like Poland or Ukraine were a plaything for Stalin's moustache. He raped those lands of resources as well as culture. If anything, the Soviets should pay reparations to these countries for half a century of life in a shit-hole i.e. Soviet Union.

During World War II, the most powerful military forces ever amassed clashed over Ukrainian territory while Nazi German occupiers initiated their criminal schemes against the population.

The Nazi Germans killed millions of Ukrainians.

Of the 2.8 million laborers forcibly deported from the former Soviet territories to Hitler's Germany, an estimated 2.3 million were Ukrainians.

More than 700 cities and towns and about 28,000 villages were completely or partially destroyed.

Ukraine suffered destruction to an extent that other regions of Nazi German-occupied Europe did not, and all of this devastation came in the wake of the worst years of Bolshevik Russia's colonialism and genocide in Ukraine.

Germany owes more than an "apology" to Ukrainians.

How about if we kill every person of German extraction, give all of German territory to you (Red), and paint an apology on the face of the moon. Would THAT satisfy your lust for revenge you sick little whiner?

No one in Ukraine is holding his breathe waiting for Germans to acknowledge, apologize, and atone for Nazi German crimes and destruction of Ukraine.

It's not enough for some Germans to just visit Babi Yar and "apoogize."

Suck rope, pal :) you won't get anything. By the way, lots of crimean tatars ask the USA for political asylum from ukrainians because nazi ukranians treat those poor tatars like sh^t. How many crimean tatars suffered and still suffer from ukrainian skinheads and law enforcements? They have to leave ukraine because they r scared! And after all this illegal actions you dare to ask Germany to give you reimbursement ?

In addition to human losses, there was great destruction of Ukraine's cultural monuments and institutions during the Nazi German occupation.

The losses suffered by the Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR alone are estimated at 126 million rubles.

The Nazi Germans destroyed 116 institutions of higher learning along with 8,104 schools (another 10,052 schools were partially destroyed).

Many architectural monuments were leveled, as were 151 museums—museum exhibits commonly being either plundered or damaged beyond repair.

More than 50 million books were burned or stolen; 634 print shops (77 percent of the Ukrainian SSR total) were ruined; and more than 200 theaters were destroyed.

During their retreat from Ukraine the Nazi Germans followed a ‘scorched earth’ policy and destroyed everything useful to their enemies.

According to Soviet figures a total of more than 5,265,000 Ukrainian civilians and Red Army prisoners of war were killed during the occupation of Ukraine.

The figure presumably includes the 900,000 Ukrainian Jews whom Western scholars estimate to have been murdered.

Nazi Germans destroyed 714 towns and urban areas and 28,000 villages and farmsteads, and left approximately 10,000,000 people homeless.

Total material losses have been estimated at a value of some 1.2 trillion prewar rubles.

No one in Ukraine is holding his or her breathe waiting for hypocritical Germans to acknowledge, apologize, and atone for Nazi German crimes and destruction of Ukrainians and Ukraine.

It's not enough for some German tourists to just visit Babi Yar and "apologize."

The world has changed. Even German Chancellor Merkel freely admits that she is 1/4 Polish. It is time for everyone to move on and away from old hatreds.There are more important issues in the world to deal with, like the 7 billion people on this planet that are hell bent on destroying the ecosystem !

But the whiners on this thread belong to the large group of Europeanmind set (both in Europe and wherever they have escapepd to) who just cannot divorce themselves from their petty ethnicity issues. They will whine until the day they die. Then they will start the same mantras wherever they end up.

BTW how did the number killed by Germans inflate from 7 million (plus those in combat) to the rediculous figure quoted in a previous post. Is this "New Math"?
