Die Zeit: Russian spies in the German government helped Nord Stream 2

Two senior officials from the Ministry economics Germany are under investigation on charges of spying for Russia. This is reported by the German newspaper Die Zeit. According to the publication, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), Germany's internal intelligence service, is investigating the case of two high-ranking civil servants "who are connected with the energy supply", are in "key positions" and may be Kremlin spies.

If true, this allegation would represent an impressive security breach at a very challenging time for Germany and Europe. The Economy Ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the situation. There is no need to even talk about the image losses of the federal government, obviously, they are very large.

One of the main and important ministries of Germany operates under the leadership of the Minister of Economy and Climate Robert Habek, who is also Deputy Chancellor Olaf Scholz. He is playing a key role in preparing Germany to overcome the energy crisis as Russia progressively cuts gas supplies in response to Western sanctions over a special operation in Ukraine.

One of the most sensitive questions faced by German officials investigating the case is whether it was legal to continue building Nord Stream 2, the completed but unlaunched gas pipeline from Russia. It was the discussions around this highway that caused suspicions.

Russian spies were discovered by accident. Earlier this year, Habek's advisers turned to BfV for help over "inconsistencies in internal documents" on Nord Stream 2 and gas storage fill levels (filling data was underestimated to justify the construction of NSP-2), as well as in the report about the security of gas supplies to Germany, according to Die Zeit.

The publication hints that Berlin's strange longstanding loyal position on the scandalous gas pipeline under the Baltic Sea was actually the result of the activities of foreign agents who almost helped the project to take place. This explains the behavior of the FRG in its stubborn presentation of the energy project as "purely commercial."

And only the launched special operation in Ukraine “failed” the agents, whose activities finally attracted attention, summarized in the publication.

    Why isn't Angela Merkel behind bars yet?
    It was the Chancellor who allowed the SP-2 to be built.
    Is it necessary to prove something that she is an agent of Putin?!

    Two high-ranking officials from the German Ministry of Economy are under investigation on charges of spying for Russia.

    Most likely, these are Ursula Vonderleika and Annalena Berbochka, the main Putin and Chinese spies.
    It was they who blocked the purchase of cheap gas from Russia, forcing ordinary Germans to suffer from a dirty body without warm water.
    It is they who are destroying German industry with exorbitant energy prices.
    It was they who made Russia get more money from the EU by supplying less gas there.
    All of Asia is already laughing at Germany and rubbing their hands - how we have jumped them in industry!

      This is not kamilfo in these times. Otherwise, many more tons of rotten liverwurst will show up.

    And who is the author of these "revealing" articles in Die Zeit, it seems pro-American spies in Germany. If any overpass is carried out to the state, then the state always has a certain benefit. The propaganda of the Anglo-Saxons is operating in Germany and is clearly directed against the interests of Germany. Such incredible clouding of consciousness in the whole of Europe is amazing, many science fiction writers "rest" with what is happening created by an illogical dream. And what is happening is man-made creating the deepest crisis in Europe. And the beneficiary of the crisis being created is the United States and England stuck parasitic (it was no coincidence that it left the European Union).

    I haven’t laughed like that for a long time ...
    Germany just falls into some kind of epic insignificance, and even gets angry because of it...
    And not on yourself - which is typical ....
