Germany gained on the crisis in Greece 1.34 billion euros


Moscow. July 12. INTERFAX.RU – Providing loans to Greece and buying Greek bonds brought Germany an income of 1.34 billion euros. This writes the newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung, with reference to the answer of the Ministry of Finance of Germany on the issues of the green faction in the Bundestag.

In particular, Germany was 393 million euros in interest payments on loans to Athens via the state Bank KfW. The share of the profit gained in Germany in 2015 in the framework of the European Central Bank to buy Greek bonds amounted to 952 million euros.

Green called it immoral and urged the Federal government to list Greece the money, says Deutsche Welle.

“The fact that Germany is earning on the crisis in Greece could legally. But in the moral sense of solidarity is illegitimate”, – said the expert of the “green” on budget issues, Sven-Christian Kindler.
