German lawmakers call on leader to cut Russia from vital SWIFT payments system

German lawmakers criticized Chancellor Olaf Scholz for not cutting Russia off from the vital high-security payment network, SWIFT, in the European Union’s latest round of sanctions on Moscow.

German Parliament member Norbert Röttgen, from the Christian Democrats party, said on Twitter that cutting Russia from SWIFT is the ''sharpest sword'' for sanctions, adding that: ''The SWIFT exclusion of Russia must not fail now because of Germany!''

@stux 👏 organize 👏 protests 👏 in 👏 front 👏 of 👏 German 👏 embassies 👏

Kick RU out of SWIFT.

@toni @stux sure. Perhaps DE is the biggest and presumably the most useful to put pressure on, I'd think.

🇺🇦 conflict, sanctions 

@toni @stux update: looks like Italy is not blocking the SWIFT thing.

I have old mom living in Russia. I send her money transfers. You are saying I should stop doing that? Only because the president we didn't choose started the war we didn't want?

@Azt3c Not at the moment 😉 Do pay attention IF they drop Russia out of SWIFT i think the transactions will bounce back but im not sure

@stux I work for foreign companies, I pay for numerous services abroad. why should I suffer from some piece of crap that seized the power in this country? I never voted for him, I never worked for the state. but voting does not work in this country: even if 100% of people vote against him he will draw his desired 146%. we cannot affect the situation in peaceful way. should we go get guns and begin mass murder or what?
@stux putler is not interested in economics development. actually, the worse the economics is the more is his power over poor and rightless citizens. people will get dependent on rouble and then this will turn into the next North Korea with nuclear weapons and crazy psycho on the throne.
