German society is not tired of supporting Ukraine – Baerbock

Sep 26, 2023

German society, despite the difficulties in the economy, does not feel any internal fatigue from helping Ukraine after Russia's full-scale invasion.

This was stated by German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, CNN reports.


The foreign minister said that high inflation is a global problem nowadays, and it concerns not only Germany but the whole world. In addition, the German economy has been largely dependent on Russian oil and gas supplies in the past.

Baerbock noted that since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the vast majority of Germans and Europeans have understood that it could have been them. When asked whether there is an internal "fatigue from Ukraine" in Germany amid the economic turmoil, the minister replied: "No, there isn’t".

"In times like these, you have to make the right decision to support Ukraine and peace. But you have to explain to people why we have to do this. You also have to work with other social programs to counteract the negative effects on ordinary people and families. And this is what we are trying to do," the minister said.
