Before Latvia calculates the sum of claims to Russia, it makes sense to calculate the cost incurred to the USSR in the liberation of Latvia from the forces of Hitler. So said the head of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Aleksey Pushkov commenting on the information that the amount of damage from “the Soviet occupation” of Latvia was increased by the Commission.
Рижская арифметика: Латвия увеличила претензии к России с 185 до 300 млдр. евро. А ск. стоило нам освобождение Латвии от Гитлера? Посчитать?

Riga Arithmetic: Latvia increased its claim to Russia from 185 to 300 billion Euros. And how much did it cost us to liberate Latvia from Hitler? calculate it?
Earlier it became known that the governmental Commission in Latvia increased the amount of approximate damage to the economy as a result of “Soviet occupation” from €185 billion to €300 billion.
