The humanitarian catastrophe produced by Ukraine’s war could be a thorn in the side of German political elites wanting to push the coronavirus agenda forward. This concern takes roots from the fact that Ukrainian refugees are refusing free COVID jabs from German government.
“Unfortunately, it seems the refugees aren’t exactly snatching the vaccines out of our hands,” remarked Marcus König, the mayor of Nuremberg, in an interview with Bayerischer Rundfunk in Bavaria.
Furthermore, Ukraine also has some of the poorest vaccination percentages in Europe with only 35 percent of the population being double jabbed. Even that figure could be exaggerated, as official data suggests that a high percentage of Ukrainian COVID certificates are fakes.
This circumstance concerns German officials, who are presently advocating for a compulsory vaccination policy that would subject the whole German population to the experimental mRNA products.

The humanitarian catastrophe produced by Ukraine’s war could be a thorn in the side of German political elites wanting to push this agenda forward, as it raises the question of if such a policy, if implemented, would also extend to Ukrainian refugees.
Forcing vaccination on Ukrainian immigrants, as German writer Vanessa Renner pointed out in a March 2 story on the subject, would ruin Germany’s reputation, which is currently shining for its backing of Ukraine against Russia. Exempting the refugees, on the other hand, would undermine the law’s legitimacy because the government would have to explain its application solely to German nationals.
Many Ukrainians fleeing their nation owing to the continuing conflict with Russia now dread being forced to take the vaccine, according to Thomas Jung, the mayor of Fürth.
“Many people who arrive here are even panic-stricken about ‘forced vaccinations,’” said Jung in an interview with Bayerischer Rundfunk.
