Merkel Believes Russian Hackers Could Influence German Election

Angela Merkel says Russia could try to influence Germany’s general elections in 2017 by launching cyber attacks or disinformation campaigns. This statement was made after the US accused Moscow of similar meddling in the US vote, which resulted in the victory of pro-Russian candidate.


Merkel claimed that Germany already had to deal with information out of Russia or with online attacks that are of Russian origin or with disinformation news. She described dealing with that as “a daily task”, so this problem could play a role during the future election campaign. Merkel’s comments were made in response to a question about whether her country could experience the type of online attacks that have affected the US race, largely targeting Hillary Clinton’s Democratic party.

The United States in October formally accused the Russian government of trying to influence the country’s election by hacking US political institutions. Of course, Russia has repeatedly dismissed these charges. Germany’s secret service earlier in 2016 accused the Russian Federation of a series of international cyber-spying and sabotage attacks. In one of them, for example, the German lower house of parliament was targeted in 2015.

Germany is going to go to the polls in September. Angela Merkel has yet to announce her candidacy but is expected by many experts to run for a 4th term.

No avatarMerkel is probably feeling vulnerable due to her mishandling of the refugee situation, best to blame the Russians for any losses rather than her actions.

suedwestgabber avatarBundeskanzlerin Merkel is right to be concerned. Imagine Germany turning to a retarded state such as the UK or the USA.

No avatarDisinformation campaigns?? Local media/main stream media have been doing it for years. The internet is still the best defense against that. Hackers or not, it lets people voice their opinions freely(even that is under attack).

No avatarThat's not the way it works. Web Brigades exist in propaganda countries. These are hundreds of well organised trolls, sometimes working out of a single building, who comment on blogs like this, to create complacency or rage on a topic. They exploit comment features and gang up.

Don't imagine that they are anything like "the media". The broadcast media are somewhat accountable, since we know who they are, and where they live. Internet trolls are unaccountable. I don't mind reading genuine comment, even of a crazed individual, but being fooled by a team of anonymous liars, is something different.

Anyone who now contradicts me, may be one of them.

No avatarIf I was that self-loathing traitor to the German people I'd be more worried about what the Germans who're slowly losing their country are going to do to her. Losing her job is the best that she can hope for.

No avatarI wish these countries would quit whining and just hack back. No doubt about it they are. Its always best for your voters if you look like your wearing a pure White Robe.

se7enslayer avatarWow mysteriously similar to Hillary's excuse for her poor showing in the United Safe Space of Retardation.

BARBAZ avatarAn early excuse among other remarks she is making 'cos she is worried that she's heading out of the door. (and lhot-footing it out of the country straight after that I expect....lmao)

It won't take extreme right groups to oust her, like everywhere else that is heading to elections "the little people" are kicking these career Po'liar'ticians into the long grass, and sending non establishment people into the mix by legitimate election routes

Long may it continue Getting power back with the rel common everyday people is real democracy as it should be.
