Training area for Ukrainians: Bundeswehr reports drone overflights in Bavaria

Suspicious drones are sighted at night over the Bundeswehr location in Wildflecken. The police are investigating who could be behind this. Because according to a report, Ukrainian soldiers are being trained on the Dingo armored vehicle at the military training area there, a certain suspicion arises.

There were suspicious drone flights at a Bundeswehr military training area on Saturday night. A spokeswoman for the Federal Ministry of Defense said there had been "repeated drone overflights by several drones over the Bundeswehr property and the adjacent Wildflecken military training area". The police were "immediately informed" and have started investigations. It is said to have been a good dozen drones.

"There was never any danger to the population," emphasized the spokeswoman. The online medium "Business Insider" had previously reported. According to his report, the Bundeswehr is training Ukrainian soldiers on armored Dingo vehicles at the training ground in the Lower Franconian district of Bad Kissingen. The federal government announced in mid-September that it would deliver 50 dingoes to the Ukraine. The armed wheel transporter is used for patrol and reconnaissance trips.

The "Spiegel" had already reported at the end of August that German security authorities had indications that Russian secret services were spying on the training of Ukrainian soldiers on Western weapon systems in Germany. Shortly after the start of the courses at two Bundeswehr locations - Idar-Oberstein in Rhineland-Palatinate and Grafenwöhr in Bavaria - the Military Shield Service (MAD) noticed suspicious vehicles from which the access roads to the barracks were probably observed, the magazine reported at the time .

According to MAD findings, the training areas were also flown over several times with small drones in order to observe the training of the Ukrainian soldiers, the report said. In Idar-Oberstein, the Bundeswehr trained Ukrainian soldiers on the Panzerhaubitze 2000, in Grafenwoehr the US armed forces trained Ukrainians on western artillery systems.
