The European Commission has called on EU member states to carry out stress tests of critical infrastructure following a series of suspicious incidents.

Speaking in the European Parliament on Tuesday, Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson said the EU executive had issued recommendations to member states on cyber defense and critical infrastructure protection.

Johansson warned EU lawmakers that Russia was waging a hybrid war against Europe, citing recent incidents, including an “act of sabotage” against the Nord Stream gas pipeline and a “strike” on Germany’s railway system which disrupted rail links to the Netherlands and Denmark.

While admitting “the attackers are so far unknown,” Johansson pointed out that “the message is clear: We know where you are weak. We know where to strike, any time we like.”

Conservative Polish MEP Joachim Brudziński echoed Johansson, pointing to the ongoing airstrikes in Ukraine as an example of “the barbarism of Putin’s hatchet men, who, unable to defeat Ukrainian soldiers on the battlefield, have resorted to attacks on civilian and critical infrastructure” resulting in “a virtual lockdown to most Ukrainian major cities.”

Such actions, he continued, “should make us realize that no country in Europe is safe in the face of the Russian dictator’s actions.”

Gdańsk police officers have detained a 24-year-old woman found living in a tent with her two-year-old daughter in a forest near Gdańsk Zaspa.

Police officers responding to an earlier report found a man and two women, including the 24-year-old mother of the child, living in a tent with a two-year-old child who “appeared chilled” and was dressed in a short-sleeved T-shirt.

According to police press officer Magdalena Ciska, “the officers immediately covered the child with blankets and thermal foil and called an ambulance.” Upon initial examination, the child appeared to be cold, hungry, and suffering from an upper respiratory tract infection.

The mother of the child was arrested and taken to a police station, while the child was taken to a hospital for further examination and treatment.

The case is currently under investigation, with the mother potentially facing the loss of her parental rights and up to five years in prison for risking her child’s health and life.
