Germans don't support economic sanctions against Russia
The German public has little appetite for imposing economic sanctions on Russia for its incursion into Ukraine but supports the new government in Kiev and has very little confidence in Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a new poll.

 

In the survey by Infratest Dimap for broadcaster ARD and the newspaper Die Welt, only 38 percent of those polled said they favoured economic sanctions against Russia, while 72 percent supported financial aid for the Ukrainian government. (Reuters)
