German economist Aika Hammer made a pessimistic forecast regarding the fate of Germany and Europe as a result of anti-Russian sanctions. The expert admitted that the German economy could collapse due to the introduction of sanctions against Russia, and after that “the whole of Europe would fall apart.” He expressed this opinion in an interview with an RT correspondent on Saturday March 26.
The economist noted that the weak point of the European economy is the price of gasoline.
“We may face the fact that diesel fuel or gasoline will cost €4-5 or even €6 per liter. We may also face the fact that most Europeans will no longer be able to afford to drive. Without this, the great prosperous West is nothing more than an illusion,” he said.
Aika Hammer said that in such a situation, low-income residents of Germany, Europe and the United States and the middle class will suffer the most.
