50 Russian troops have arrived on Danish ground. We just learned this in a press conference along with the information that the UK and Germany will be leading the evacuation of the island. The spokesperson ensured that a planning system for the evacuation of the population is in place and that the safety of the Danish citizen’s is at core of the current operations. The role of other neighboring, (non-NATO) member states such as Sweden is unclear, as is any further development. Negotiations with the Russian ambassador to the UK have been initiated. The international community is alarmed. Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and the Pope have expressed their concern.
It has also been confirmed that the Danish military was subject of a cyber-attack which makes the Danish military more reliant on British support.
