It was said that the energy and food crisis, which is effective on a global scale, may cause social events in Germany. Here are the details…
The Russia-Ukraine war caused a worldwide energy and food crisis. Like many countries, Germany is struggling with this crisis. High energy and food prices cause great uneasiness in the citizens. As such, it was stated that social events may occur in the future in Germany, which took measures against the crisis.
“Rising Energy and Food Prices Will Cause Social Incidents”
According to the German newspaper Tagesspiegel, some sources from the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) said that protests could be held due to rising energy and food prices, and that internal turmoil could arise at the same time.
BKA stated that if a significant part of the population feels existential threatening situations as a result of political decisions, a situation similar to Corona protests may occur.
Federal Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock has warned against popular uprisings caused by energy shortages in recent months.
At the same time, high energy and food prices negatively affect the German economy. The data released by the Kiel Institute of World Economy (IfW) recently revealed that the German economy will contract by 0.7 percent in 2023. In the report, it was stated that the energy import bill will increase by 123 billion euros this year and another 136 billion euros next year.
