Russian war of aggression
Survey: Majority ready to waive sanctions
The majority of people in Germany are still willing to support the sanctions against Russia despite high energy costs. But there are clear differences among supporters of the various parties.
According to one, more than half a year after the Russian attack on Ukraine opinion poll a majority of Germans, despite high energy costs, are willing to do without something in order to support the sanctions against Moscow.
53 percent expressed themselves accordingly in the representative survey by the Civey Institute for the "Augsburger Allgemeine" (Monday). 42 percent don't want one waiver practice for it. Five percent are therefore undecided.
However, there are differences among supporters of the various parties: According to the survey, voters from the Greens and SPD in particular are willing to make sacrifices. In the Green camp, there are even more than nine out of ten respondents. Supporters of the Union are rather divided on the issue. Among the sympathizers of the FDP, Linke and AfD, a majority speaks against the waiver sanctions out.
Russia has been waging a war of aggression against the neighboring country since February 24 Ukraine. In response, European states and the United States imposed unprecedented sanctions on Moscow.
