Habeck: Excluding Russia from SWIFT is a last resort

Friday, 21. January 2022 09:24

In response to the question regarding Russia's exclusion from the SWIFT payment system in case of its invasion of Ukraine, German Economics Minister Robert Habeck said in an interview with Spiegel on Friday that there is no use of speculating on "abstract sanctions" at his point.

Habeck, a member of the Greens, also stated that the current direction should be to engage Germany in international cooperation concerning renewable energy supplies and thereby contribute to bridging the gap created by the recent unfolding in the Ukraine crisis.
