GER­MANY

Scottish Daily Mail - - News -

IN 2015, a Rus­sian cy­ber-at­tack took down the par­lia­men­tary com­puter sys­tem for four days. Ger­man au­thor­i­ties also blame Rus­sia for hack­ing po­lit­i­cal par­ties last year, and for spread­ing fake news to fo­ment un­rest, in­clud­ing the ab­duc­tion and rape, al­legedly by mi­grants, of a teenage girl. In this year’s elec­tion, the anti-mi­grant, pro-Rus­sian party Al­ter­na­tive für Deutsch­land (AfD) took 13 per cent of the vote, and is in coali­tion talks with An­gela Merkel.
