German imports from Russia down over 90% in war’s 1st year


BERLIN (AP) — Official figures show that Germany’s imports from Russia fell by more than 90% in the first year of Moscow’s war in Ukraine, largely as a result of the collapse of Russian energy deliveries to Europe’s biggest economy. The Federal Statistical Office said Thursday that Germany imported goods worth 300 million euros ($329 million) in February, down from 3.7 billion euros a year earlier. Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, 2022, triggering several rounds of Western sanctions. Its relations with the West have chilled even in areas that weren’t directly subject to sanctions, such as natural gas.
