A group of German lawmakers are pushing Germany to stop weapons shipments to the Ukraine. In a letter to the Chancellor they wrote: “The war threatens to plunge the world into a recession with rising unemployment.

Therefore we must be war winners have to pay up and tax high incomes more heavily. This not only strengthens the welfare state, but is also a question of justice.”
