Report: Putin Could Seize Nazi Gold Train for Alleged Soviet Reparations

Sunday, 30 August 2015 02:02 PM

Russian strongman Vladimir Putin may be moving to seize the famed Nazi ghost train laden with gold that has ostensibly been discovered in Poland.

How could he do it? A Russian lawyer says Kremlin could lay claim to the valuables as compensation for the country’s losses in the Second World War, according to the Independent.

The so-called ‘Nazi gold train’ has been reportedly been found hear the town of Walbrzych, where rumors have been constant for years that a train filled with gold had been abandoned during the Nazi era and was lying undiscovered nearby. Polish government officials say that they are now “more than 99 per cent certain the train exists.”

The train could reveal the long-sought solution to the mystery of the ‘Amber room’ - an ornate chamber made of amber pearls thought to be worth at least $300 million. It was stolen by German troops from a palace near St. Petersburg during the war.

The Russian lawyer told a Russian news site that “representatives of Russia should undoubtedly be involved in determining the value of the items discovered if the train is located.

“In this case, Poland is obliged to engage international experts to clarify what is in the cargo. If the property has been taken away from territory, including the USSR, then the cargo, in accordance with international law, must be passed to the Russian side," the lawyer said.
