Germany Updates War Plans Amid Russia Threat #

Germany has updated its plans in case of conflict with Russia. The 67-page Framework Directive for Overall Defense details the changes that would occur in daily life for German citizens during war. It includes conscription, mandatory service in certain jobs, and rationing of food, petrol, and oil. Civil protection measures involve converting subway stations into bunkers and preparing hospitals for an influx of patients. The interior minister emphasized the need to strengthen civil protection due to the changed security situation in Europe. Germany’s broadcast and digital media will be required to share government information immediately under the new plans.
