German craftsmen demanded that Scholz lift sanctions against Russia

German craftsmen demanded that Scholz lift sanctions against Russia

German artisans and industrialists called on German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to lift the sanctions imposed on Russia in order to save the country’s economy.

The trade association of the German district of Halle Saalekreis in Saxony-Anhalt wrote a sharp letter to Scholz with a corresponding demand.

“We, as craftsmen, know from many conversations with our clients that the vast majority of them are unwilling to sacrifice their hard-earned standard of living for Ukraine. Do you want to be the chancellor who brought Germany to ruin? Do you really want to sacrifice your country?” the letter says.

Representatives of the trade association stressed that the fall in living standards, even for the middle class, will lead to a sharp decline in purchasing power. And this will be followed by the ruin of the masters.
