According to a survey, more than six months after the Russian attack on Ukraine, a majority of Germans are willing to do without something in order to support the sanctions against Moscow, despite high energy costs.
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 is against the waiver of sanctions.
Russia has been waging a war of aggression against neighboring Ukraine since February 24. In response, European states and the United States imposed unprecedented sanctions on Moscow.
