According to the publication, the last time Germans panicked because they would not have enough manpower, the country’s leadership, headed by Angela Merkel, “occurred” to bring immigrants from poor countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia to the country. . So, the author claims, Berlin presented this as a “highly moral concern” on the part of economically developed Germany. But labor market data suggested that the “traditional” source of German labor, particularly in the Balkans and Eastern Europe, had dried up.
And recently a new one has appeared: Ukraine, advanced notes. If at the beginning of the conflict Ukrainian refugees mainly sought to go to Poland, which assumed the role of “one of the main allies” of kyiv, now they choose Germany.
“And what is happening? Now there is a real exodus of Ukrainian refugees from Poland. They go to Germany, where they are attracted by higher salaries and other advantages,” the article says.
At the same time, Warsaw, according to the author, “is not too” happy with what is happening, since it expected the Ukrainians to work for it.
“But Germany has surpassed it.” “Figures show that more than 350,000 Ukrainian refugees left Poland last year, i.e. since August 2022, and most of them moved to Germany,” the publication states.
Advance believes that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is deliberately expanding aid to Ukraine, supplying as many weapons as possible to prolong the conflict.
“We can say that Scholz has found a new source of labor, thus solving his main problem, just as his predecessor Angela Merkel did,” the publication concludes.
