– Lieutenant General told Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger on Friday, quoted by another German newspaper – The Munich Eye, recalling that Mr. Schelleis is officially the head of the support service and logistics of the Bundeswehr.
In addition, according to the commander, there are such threats as a possible strike by ballistic missiles that Russia has deployed in the Kaliningrad region.
