The Berlin prosecutor's office filed an application to open a criminal case due to the possible disclosure of state secrets. We are talking about information released during closed hearings on the war in Ukraine.
The head of the Bundestag Defense Committee, Marie-Agnes Strack-Zimmermann, filed a corresponding statement. The other day she visited Ukraine.
Disclosure of state secrets regarding Ukraine is possible in Germany
The Federal Intelligence Service of Germany intercepted the radio communications of the military armed forces of Russia. They have detailed information about the killings of Ukrainian civilians. There is a suspicion that the details of the negotiations were later passed on to the media.
Last week, the intelligence officers presented the protocols of the interception of the Bundestag committee for monitoring the activities of the special services. Copies of the protocols were also sent to the defense and foreign affairs committees.
According to the German media, information could have been leaked at this stage. However, all details must be established by the Berlin prosecutor's office.
After it became known about the interception protocols, the Russian military closed the channels through which the negotiations were taking place. According to interlocutors close to NATO, access to other sources of information was also blocked.
