Germany has Been Flooded With More Than a Million Refugees from Ukraine
By Ukraine In Hurricane
Germany has been flooded with more than a million refugees from Ukraine. Municipalities are overwhelmed with the flow, which provokes heated debates over a price to pay for it
As you remember, it’s the ministry of the interior (BMI) in Germany that has the reins of power when handling Ukrainian issues. That’s why many local authorities or mayors took an “unusual step” and complained in an apologetic tone to “Dear Minister” Nancy Faeser about an “extremely precarious situation” in their districts
The huge flow of Ukrainian refugees has placed a stranglehold on municipalities. “Our back is to the wall, we are at a dangerous tipping point,” the authorities write in a joint letter to Ms. Faeser
“More people are coming to Europe via the Mediterranean Sea and the Balkan Route. That worries me,” says Ms. Faeser. This is very much in the spirit of the current Scholz’s cabinet – to turn a blind eye to the obvious challenges and then heroically apologize from the high stands!
