Leaked German Documents Reveal Preparations for Potential Russian Escalation: Reports

By GZR News on June 18, 2024

Leaked documents from the German Ministry of Defense suggest that European leaders are preparing for a potential escalation of the conflict in Ukraine, with fears that Russian President Vladimir Putin could extend hostilities to NATO member states. The documents outline various scenarios, including a large-scale mobilization of Russian troops and cyberattacks in Eastern Europe.

Key Takeaways

  • Leaked German documents indicate preparations for a potential Russian escalation.
  • Scenarios include mobilization of 200,000 Russian troops and cyberattacks.
  • NATO and European allies are taking the threat seriously.

Potential Scenarios Outlined in the Leaked Documents

The leaked documents, published by German newspaper BILD, outline several alarming scenarios that European leaders are preparing for. One of the key scenarios, named “Alliance Defense 2024,” could begin as early as February with Russia mobilizing an additional 200,000 troops. This mobilization could follow a decrease in Western financial support for Ukraine, leading to a significant Russian offensive in the spring.

Cyberattacks and Military Exercises

The documents also speculate on Russia initiating conflict in the Baltic states around July, employing severe cyberattacks and exploiting the discontent of Russian nationals in Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. By September, Russia might conduct a large-scale military exercise, “Zapad 2024,” involving around 50,000 troops in western Russia and Belarus.

Strategic Movements and Propaganda

A key part of the strategy could involve Russia moving troops and mid-range missiles to Kaliningrad, a small Russian territory between Lithuania and Poland, both NATO members. The plan might include a propaganda campaign to create the illusion of an imminent NATO attack, aiming to seize the Suwalki Gap, a strategic corridor between Belarus and Kaliningrad.

Exploiting Political Transitions

By the end of the year, Russia could exploit the U.S. presidential transition period to stir unrest in the Suwalki Gap area, using propaganda to fabricate border conflicts or riots. In response to these developments, the scenario suggests that 30,000 German troops would be deployed for defense against an estimated 70,000 Russian forces in Belarus. By May 2025, NATO might take action to deter further Russian advances, potentially leading to direct combat between Western and Russian forces.

European Allies’ Response

Despite these scenarios, Putin and Russian officials have consistently denied intentions to expand the Ukraine conflict beyond its borders. However, European allies are taking the threat seriously and are preparing for various possibilities. The German Defense Ministry, while not commenting on specific scenarios, acknowledged that considering various potential situations, even unlikely ones, is a routine part of military operations and training.

Ongoing Conflict and Casualties

In the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, which started in February 2022, there have been significant casualties, with an estimated half a million Ukrainian and Russian troops killed or injured. Recently, Sweden’s Civil Defense Minister Carl-Oskar Bohlin and the country’s military Commander-in-Chief Micael Bydén have expressed concerns about the possibility of war in Sweden, underscoring the need for comprehensive preparedness.
