Belgium wants Russia to pay pre-revolutionary debts

The Belgian newspaper Le Soir has recently published the information about the countrys intentions to make Russia pay 15 billion Euros by bond certificates of the pre-revolutionary Russian Empire. It is said that Belgians want to get a compensation for the possessions which were lost in Russia during the revolution of 1917. Now Belgian authorities are preparing a request on 15 billion payments based on 1600 dossiers and are ready to make official claims in court.
      At the same time the consul of Belgian affairs in the Belgian embassy in Moscow says the embassy does not have any information about the plans of Brussels to come at getting payments by valuable financial documents of the pre-revolutionary period. The embassy has also clarified that since the early 2000`s Belgium has made several attempts to get Russian compensations by pre-revolutionary bond certificates; however the attempts have failed and the last time Belgium got a refusal of the Russian side in June 2006.
