German special service warns that Russia can carry out a disinformation campaign during the elections to Bundestag. This was announced by the head of German Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution Hans-Georg Maaßen, reports Welt.
“We believe Russia is capable to start disinformation campaigns in connection with the elections to Bundestag,” he said.
But he doesn’t know if such measures fit “current political program of Kremlin.”
Maaßen supposes that perhaps the Kremlin won’t be interested in further straining the relations with Germany.
The Bundestag elections will take place on September 24.
As it was reported earlier Russian hackers may be involved in Bundestag secret files abduction. A source in the German secret service told about the possibility of this version.
