German intelligence: “We fear the pro-Russian May 9 demonstrations”
German intelligence is predicting possible pro-Russian demonstrations in Germany on May 9, the day Russia celebrates the Soviet Union’s victory over the Nazis. “It’s an ideal date used by Russian propaganda,” said the head of the local intelligence agency, Thomas Haldenwang, in an interview to be published tomorrow by Die Welt newspaper. “On May 9, we expect pro-Russian activities such as car rallies and demonstrations across Germany, including probably the display of the letter Z, which has become a symbol of the Russian invasion of Ukraine,” Haldenwang was quoted as saying by German news agency DPA. Therefore, federal and individual security authorities are preparing for these possible demonstrations next Monday, according to the newspapers of the Funk Group, with a primary focus on Berlin and North Rhine-Westphalia.
