Count BfV's Hans-Georg Maaßen among Germans who understand what's happening:
The tactics of Russia's former Soviet KGB intelligence agency have been employed again, said Hans-Georg Maaßen, President of the BfV, on Wednesday (25 February) at the European Police Conference in Berlin.
Aside from espionage, this included targeted misinformation, influencing decisions and supporting extremist groups with the goal of destabilising a state, Maaßen indicated. As Russia’s neighbours, Eastern European states were especially affected by this, he said.
