Russian Lawmakers Take Aim At Germany

  A Russian lawmaker is calling for Germany to pay trillions of euros in reparations for World War II. Mikhail Degtyaryov, a State Duma deputy with the nationalist Liberal Democratic Party, told the pro-Kremlin daily Izvestia that he has called for a working group to determine how much Berlin should pay Moscow. He said the figure should be "no less than 3 trillion-4 trillion euros."
