Russia offers to help Greece in World War II claims investigation

Moscow is helping Greece in its investigation into possible Second World War reparations from Germany by providing access to previously unused archives.

Following a request by Alternate Defense Minister Costas Isichos, the Russian Embassy in Athens has provided Greek authorities with a list of the relevant archives, including documents, photographs and documentary footage.

Moscow’s move comes as the National Council for WWII Reparations from Germany has stepped up efforts to inform Greeks about its work. The group has put on display videos and posters explaining its work at 100 locations in Athens metro stations.
