In the fifth month of Russia’s full-scale military invasion of Ukraine, almost half of Germans believe that sanctions against the Russian Federation harm Germany more than Russia.

This is evidenced by the results of a survey by the Insa institute, according to Bild am Sonntag .

About 47% of the Germans surveyed expressed doubts about the sanctions and believe that they harm Germany more than the aggressor country Russia. 

36% are in favor of the fact that the damage from sanctions is about the same, both for Germany and the Russian Federation.

12% of respondents expressed the opinion that Russia suffers more from sanctions.

Also, the study showed that the majority of Germans, about 74%, are preparing for a financial downturn and rising unemployment. Another 83% believe that prices will continue to rise.

63% of those polled expect Germany to declare a so-called state of emergency due to the gas crisis. Another 83% think that there will be restrictions on energy consumption for private households as well.

The survey was conducted by the research institute Insa among 1003 respondents in Germany.

  1. Well, maybe those 47% are right.
    Why?
    Because the biggest dilemma that is torturing the country right now was forthcoming for many years. We all on here had warned that problems lay ahead. This problem is Germany’s addiction to fossil fuels from mafia land. And, those clowns that call themselves representatives of the people and experts on finances and trade have royally fucked up the sanction strategy in other ways too, but the energy component is the biggest headache. Having said that, if those German morons would find their courage and their dignity again, they would massively help Ukraine to win this war. The sooner this happens, the sooner the pain will go away.
