“Do you really want to sacrifice your country?”, they asked.

The artisans asked Solac to lift all sanctions against Russia.

“We artisans know from many conversations with our customers that the vast majority of citizens do not want to sacrifice their hard-earned standard of living. This is not our war”, they underlined in the letter.

“Do you want to be the chancellor who brought Germany to ruin? Do you want to sacrifice your own land?”, ask the artisans.

At the same time, they criticize Russia’s attack on Ukraine, judging that it is a serious crime and a clear violation of the UN Charter.

“However, we are concerned about the future of our children and grandchildren, the survival of our companies, and our country,” they underlined.

Craftsmen point out that Ukraine is not a very “pure” democratic state, reminding that it is a corrupt state.

“Do you want to sacrifice Germany for that?”, they pointed out.

According to them, if prices continue to rise, then “ordinary citizens” will no longer be able to afford life. B92
