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!''

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
