Merkel: Sanctions against Russia amid coronavirus are not very pleasant


German Chancellor Angela Merkel believes that sanctions during the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic are very unpleasant. Therefore, Berlin will continue to work on solving the problems that became the reasons that led to the sanctions against Moscow.


Of course, we all want to develop well in economic terms, and sanctions from this point of view, I must say, are unpleasant. When I think of sanctions against Russia imposed because of the Ukrainian issue, we are working to resolve political problems that cause them

- said Merkel, speaking at the 11th international conference “Petersburg Climate Dialogue” on April 28, 2020.

At the same time, the German Chancellor expressed the hope that Russia will continue to play a significant role in protecting the climate on the planet. Merkel clarified that she had already discussed these issues with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

I am glad that Russia is actively involved in climate protection work, and would like to urge it to continue to do so.

- added Merkel.

It should be noted that on the same day, during the aforementioned international conference on climate change, the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres urged to lift the sanctions that prevent countries from combating dangerous infections and undermine their response potential. In his opinion, “it is important that the sanctions regime be wise and not undermine the goals of global politics that we all have.”

For clarity, this event, for obvious reasons, was held in videoconference mode. The Petersburg Climate Dialogue was organized by Germany in 2010 as an informal negotiating platform.

    It sounds exactly like Putin is not happy with the pension reform.

    Of course, they are not pleasant: Russia copes with coronavirus better than Germany or the USA. And it looks doubly shameful)

    Instead of our turbines, they will make their own! Very unpleasant, and because of what? So that Ukraine is good?

    Some strange capitalists. They don’t worry about their benefits, they worry about others. And an hour, are you not becoming communists? A joke, but life can also joke ...

    For this, the Germans and Merkel need to switch to Russian pipeline gas and not use nuclear and coal energy. And then she, as a political officer - Do as I say, and not - Do - like me.
