Russian special services created an intelligence network in Europe, where they collected information about weapons being prepared for delivery to Ukraine and training of the Ukrainian military.

According to an investigation by the German publication Spiegel, agents are actively working in Germany.

Attention to Russian agents in Germany has increased dramatically since the start of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine on February 24th. The special services have established that hacker attacks on the headquarters of the “Green” party, as a result of which the attackers gained access to electronic boxes, are connected with Russia.

Some deputies from the “Greens” On the advice of the German Constitutional Protection Department, they refused to work in offices, since they are located across the street from the Russian embassy, ​​from where you can see what is happening there.

A confidential document of the security apparatus that came into the possession of Spiegel warns that in Germany be “increased spying on state and parliamentary bodies”, in particular the office of the chancellor, the ministries of foreign affairs, the economy, the interior and defense, as well as on the specialized committees of the Bundestag.

Special services consider sabotage acts in Germany possible, which may be directed against the transportation of weapons to Ukraine. It cannot be ruled out that Russia could deliberately cause unrest in Germany – for example, supplying explosives by terrorists or conducting “false flag attacks”.

After the United States and Germany announced in the spring that Ukrainian soldiers would be trained on Western weapons such as the Panzerhaubitze 2000, German authorities spotted suspicious vehicles in front of military installations in Grafenwöhr and Idar-Oberstein.

According to Spiegel sources, scanners could be used to spy on the mobile phone data of Ukrainians in Germany. In addition, mini-drones with cameras were spotted over the exercise zones.

In addition, the German secret services consider Russian oppositionists and deserters who fled to Germany since the start of a full-scale war in Ukraine to be potentially dangerous. They do not rule out that the Russian Federation may arrange attempts to kill them “to deter other dissidents.”
