Pistorius said CIR will fight against hybrid threats like disinformation and influence operations, and will also handle tasks like electronic warfare.

The German military will have a new central command that combines two separate commands for domestic and foreign operations.

The aim of revamping the German army, or Bundeswehr, is to adapt it to the “changing times” and the increasing threats posed by Russia.

“Since Russia has questioned the European peace order, a particular threat situation has arisen for Germany and its allies,” Pistorius said.

“No one should have the idea of attacking us as a NATO territory. We have to convey this credibly and truthfully,” he told reporters during a press conference in Berlin.

Pistorius says the Bundeswehr will need an extra $7.06 billion in 2025 to reach the NATO defense spending goal of 2% of gross domestic product in the next few years.
