Eva Hegel, the Defense Commissioner of the German Bundestag, released the annual report of the Bundeswehr in Berlin on the 23rd, saying that the number of extreme right suspects in the German army has soared.
Hegel said that the German Military Counter-Espionage Agency found a total of 477 far-right suspects in the Bundeswehr in 2020, an increase of 114 over 2019.
She pointed out that the number of extreme right suspects in the army has increased significantly, indicating that the Federal Wehrmacht must continue to fight against far-rightism.
He also said that fighting extreme rightism is a long-term task in both the German army and German society. The German army has had many far-rightist scandals in recent years.
The elite KSK special forces of the Federal Defense Force were ordered by the Ministry of Defense to rectify and restructure last year due to frequent extreme right problems.
German media reported that members of the army had performed Nazi salutes at a farewell event.
