The head of the German Intelligence Service, Bruno Kahl, was on a mission in Kiev when he was surprised by the start of the Russian special operation against the Ukrainian military. He had to be evacuated from the conflict area by land.
The President of the Federal Intelligence Service (BND) Bruno Kahl was surprised in Kiev by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Kahl traveled to Ukraine on Wednesday for urgent talks on the current situation, a BND spokesman said on Friday on request. Because of the onset of hostilities and the blocked airspace over Ukraine, the President had to return by land on Thursday.
The magazine Focus first reported that the President of the Federal Intelligence Service had been rescued from Ukraine in dire need.
“Several days ago, before the start of the large-scale Russian military action, Bruno Kahl traveled to the Ukrainian capital of Kiev to discuss the background of the situation with his Ukrainian colleagues.”
But the attack by Russia early Thursday morning, which surprised everyone, also surprised Kahl. After Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock had called on all Germans to leave the country, a special department of the Federal Police, Personal Protection Abroad, became active and evacuated diplomats and liaison officers from the BKA overland, according to Focus.
But Kahl could not reach this evacuation unit in time. Therefore, a special department of the BND had to rescue him from this dangerous situation. According to information, Kahl was on his way to Poland on Friday afternoon and is scheduled to set foot on EU soil in Poland, in the afternoon. This was confirmed to Focus by security sources.
