Russia should pay up to $800 BILLION for ‘Soviet crimes’ of Ukrainian & Georgian leaders, says Lithuanian independence figurehead

Liberating the Baltic nations from Nazi occupation cost more than a quarter of a million Red Army soldiers their lives. Now, though, the ‘father of Lithuanian Independence’ wants Russia to pay the country in cash as compensation.

Vytautas Landsbergis, the former chairman of the Supreme Council of Lithuania, who led the nation as it broke away from the USSR, made the comments as part of an interview with the local Delfi news outlet on Saturday, saying that Moscow should shell out for Soviet-era repressions, despite the fact they were carried out by leaders from a range of modern-day countries.

The Baltic nation was a constituent part of the communist federation of Soviet Republics from the end of WWII until 1990, when it declared independence. During that period, it was governed from Moscow, but by communist chiefs from a number of different modern-day countries, including Joseph Stalin who, along with his brutal secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria, hailed from Georgia, and for close to two decades by Ukrainian Leonid Brezhnev.
