Germany has told about fear of Russia to interfere with the German elections


The head of the German Federal department of protection of the constitution (counterintelligence) Hans-George Maasen has said that Russia "has refrained from attempts to influence elections to the Bundestag". About it on Thursday, October 5, Epoch Times Europe reports. According to Maasen, in Moscow, apparently, have come to a conclusion that "political costs because of similar intervention were too high".

I won't remember that the German counterintelligence has told something about this established fact" — the minister has noted.
