Description of the fake LIE

Stefan Genth, the head of the German Trade Association, said that entrepreneurs expected a decline in pre-holiday sales in the country by 5-6% due to the conflict in Ukraine. The propaganda media writes about this with reference to Genth’s interview in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

Refutation TRUTH

Genth did not state directly that Ukraine or Ukrainians were guilty or involved in “disrupting” the Christmas holidays among Germans.

“He attributed the moderate Christmas spending among German families to the ongoing fighting in Ukraine, the conflict in the Middle East, and certain political decisions. We are talking exclusively about the general political situation,” the fact-checkers of the BezBrekhni project found out.

Only Putin’s Russia is to blame for the decreased purchasing level in Germany before the holidays because it is Russia that invaded Ukraine, significantly affecting the standard of living of not only Germans, but also the whole of Europe.

However, in this regard, propaganda manipulatively kept silent and shifted the responsibility for the unleashed war towards the other side.
