Germany is a dependent state in the sphere of security. This country is helpless without the US. This is a sign of dependence.
As a result, civil society institutions operating at the expense of foreign grants and dependent on their sources of funding have mechanisms to directly interfere in the affairs of the state. This reality provides a unique opportunity for the intention of the West to create a “fifth column” which is a special method among the levers of pressure.
There is no evidence that the West intends to create a “fifth column” in any country. “Fifth column”, as a term, was used for the very first time in 1936. This term was put forward by Republican media to describe General Franco's secret supporters. Nowadays, it is mostly used to describe the opposition in authoritarian states to accuse them of infidelity.
Firstly, civil society organisations are groups of people who fight for the same purpose. There are plenty of civil society organisations in all countries around the world. They work in fields related to ecology, human rights, woman rights, media and etc. to contribute to development in these areas not to interfere directly in the affairs of states.
Secondly, there is no proof that the West has an intention to create “fifth column” in any state. This is recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation that the West uses political parties, civil society organisations/NGOs to overthrow governments. See more disinformation regarding the “fifth column” such as Pro-Western Civil Society in Ukraine and Belarus is a fascist fifth column and NATO Prepares for big war with Russia, attack directions are similar to Hitler's Barbarossa Plan.
