Austrian Defense Minister did not rule out the possibility of a power outage in a number of EU countries

Today, Austrian Defense Minister Claudia Tanner made statements regarding possible power outages in a number of EU countries, including in Austria itself this winter. As the head of the defense department clarified, the Russian special services are allegedly carefully preparing for this, whose plans are to disable the energy systems of Western countries by using hacker attacks.


At the same time, the minister added that this is exactly how Moscow is waging a hybrid war against Europe, while not providing a single evidence of the impending “hacks”.

I believe that the likelihood of power outages in some EU countries in the near future is quite high. It's only a matter of time, as they say.

Tanner said.

The risk of disconnection is said to be directly related to the Ukrainian conflict. At the same time, Claudia Tanner urged to take this with all responsibility.

It should be noted that the West has repeatedly accused Russia of allegedly interfering in the internal affairs of the European Union, as well as carrying out cyber attacks on its critical infrastructure. Moscow denied all accusations in this regard, each time pointing out that they are all unfounded, without any evidence. At the same time, the Russian leadership constantly expressed its readiness to conduct negotiations in the field of cybersecurity, to which the same EU refused, and those politicians who offered to establish such contacts were immediately recorded as “Kremlin agents”.

        Wow it's like! It turns out that bastard Russia heated, illuminated, fed, gave steel, fertilizers, titanium for aircraft, and in return received kicks, pokes, pennies and spit? Did they live happily ever after? All the lafa is over ... All these chalets, cheeses, and green energy no longer heat or feed them .. We need cheap oil, gas, metals and free grain with meat.

    Do not worry our former compatriots. If anything, come back for the winter to us. Relax and warm up. And don't forget to take your money with you. To buy our souvenirs. lol

      Let them leave money for our gas. The Kaliningrad governor announced the influx of Germans into the region to spend the winter. A start has been made, soon it will be necessary to strengthen the cordons, hang a thorn so that they do not climb. Are we a horde? Okay, don't meddle with us!

    And before that, this madam said:
    BERLIN, 27 December. /TASS/. Austria intends to allocate more than €16 billion to improve air defense / missile defense systems to combat missiles and drones. Austrian Defense Minister Claudia Tanner said this in an interview with Die Welt on Tuesday.
    "We are investing €16,6 billion and thereby improving our defense against missiles and drones. That is why we are currently studying the question of the extent to which we can participate in the creation of the European Sky Shield - approx. TASS ) along with 14 other states," she said.


    Well, now we need to justify such expenses.

    ZNPP continues to be under the control of the RF Armed Forces.
    The nodes that distribute electricity in Ukraine are periodically destroyed.
    Countries such as France, Germany, Great Britain will share, not free of charge, only if there is an excess in their generating facilities.
    Perhaps this may affect the lack of electricity in some countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
    Maybe there are other reasons, but to say that "all the evil is from Russian hackers who are controlled from Moscow" is like blaming Biden personally for the fact that Philip Morris cigarette smokers are dying in Europe because of him.

      ZNPP has nothing to do with the export of electricity - the export came from the so-called Burshtyn energy island, which was "configured" for export (standards for frequency stability, network interference, etc.). Here the problem is rather in Europe itself - the Poles have a coal-fired power unit, the French have problems with the nuclear power plant and the Finns have problems with the third Olkiluoto reactor, the Norwegians after the summer drought have accumulated enough water for the winter for the hydroelectric power station ...

    Interesting. The Minister of Defense of Austria is responsible for the energy sector in Austria.
    Cool. I believe.
