German authorities uncover spy network in Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action

Within the German Ministry of Economic Affairs, Russian spies may have been active who worked on German energy policy from high positions. Germany’s interior ministry has accused two top officials of spying for Russia.

The news comes out through leading German media, such as the Handelsblatt and Die Zeit, which rely on anonymous sources within the security service BfV.

The ministry and the security service officially do not want to respond to the case.

According to sources, the ministry would have informed the BfV when doubts had arisen internally about the integrity of the two officials. The suspicions began due to both taking pro-Russian positions regarding Germany’s energy and gas policy.

It dealt with issues such as licensing the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, nationalizing Gazprom Germania and rescuing energy company Uniper.
