Warning of terrorist attacks in Germany due to war in Ukraine

Against the backdrop of the Ukrainian-Russian conflict, police unions are warning of attacks on facilities of both countries in Germany. Oliver Malchow, the federal chairman of the Police Trade Union (GdP), told the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung newspaper: “Violent conflicts between sympathizers of both groups within Germany are possible. This includes attacks on representations and official institutions of both countries.” Police forces of the federal government and the states must be ready in case of an emergency, he said, adding that the effects of the conflict on Germany’s internal security are being reassessed daily.

German police officers’ union warns of terrorist attacks

The police officers’ union DPolG also shares this assessment. Its president, Rainer Wendt, assumes further possible targets. Wendt said that “Germany could become a target for terrorist attacks, for example by damaging or destroying critical infrastructure facilities.” In recent years, he said, there have been repeated attacks on the information systems of various institutions or industries. The energy supply could also be a potential target.

Threat to accommodate Ukrainian war refugees

With the expected influx of refugees into Germany, Wendt also sees a threat to the accommodation of Ukrainian war refugees, whose shelters would have to be intensively protected. Wendt said: “We have painfully found out in Germany that the Russian secret services do not shy away from practicing their murderous craft also on German soil.”
