Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said Sunday the country had a “moral obligation” to claim reparations from Germany for the damages wrought by the Nazis during World War II. (AFP)

The amount has been estimated around 162 billion of € (80% of the current GDP). (Il Fatto Quotidiano)
Tsipras met last week all the European leaders to explain his programme. While the majority of EU leaders were quite skeptical, especially Germany, he got the support from the Spanish radical left party Podemos and surprisingly also from former Italian PM Berlusconi.
