Interior Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia, Herbert Reul: "New enemies of the state are establishing themselves"

Herbert Reul, is concerned that the mood in the country will deteriorate and that issues such as the Russian war against Ukraine, the energy crisis and rising prices will give the conspiracy believers new fuel. "It's no longer about protesters, it's almost about something like new enemies of the state that are establishing themselves," said the CDU politician on ntv's "Frühstart".

The protest potential has not increased, but the occasions have become more intense. "I'm worried that if things get really tangible - energy crisis, prices, cold living rooms, fuel is getting more and more expensive - that the ground for such narratives, for such conspiracy theories, will increase," says Reul.
