The newspaper, which cites Western officials, reports that Carsten L., who was charged espionage for Russia, had access to “highly sensitive, top-secret information about the war in Ukraine, as well as knowledge of how the US and its allies obtained it.” According to the daily, the Federal Intelligence Service (BND) received information about the activities of a potential “mole” in its midst earlier this year.

The suspected Russian spy was supposed to deal with electronic intelligence, including e.g. information on Ukraine captured by German and allied services, as well as satellite photos. One U.S. official said the case had raised “serious concerns.”

According to Erich Schmidt-Eenboom, an expert quoted by the WSJ, the case may turn out to be the worst case of penetration of German services by Russia since 1961, when a BND officer spying for Moscow exposed the network of one hundred CIA agents.
