Russia has increased its disinformation campaigns in Germany since its invasion of Ukraine, the German domestic intelligence agency said in Berlin on September 5.
Moscow’s activities in the information area have changed radically since February last year, said Bodo Becker, espionage specialist for the agency.
“Its approach has become evidently more confrontational and more aggressive as a whole,” he said.
The content and tone of the disinformation is being adapted to the Russian military campaign and to German and global debates, he told a conference convened by the intelligence agency.
