DW: Germans see arming Ukraine as involvement
A poll conducted by Germany’s DPA news agency suggests many Germans disapprove of arming Ukraine in its war against Russia.
The majority of German people see their country’s arms deliveries to Ukraine as participation in the war against Russia, a recent poll suggests.
The poll was conducted on behalf of Germany’s DPA news agency by the opinion research institute YouGov. It surveyed 2,072 Germans nationwide from February 21 until February 23, ahead of the one-year anniversary of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
Fifty-one percent of the respondents thought arming Ukraine meant being part of the war, an argument that Russia has been pushing. Meanwhile, 37% disagreed with the statement.
Germany has approved some €2.6 billion ($2.75 billion) worth of weapons and armaments since the start of the war.
