The probability of a blackout in parts of the EU in the near future is very high. “The question is not if he’s coming, but when he’s coming,” says Tanner. She emphasized that the risk of a widespread power failure had increased significantly as a result of the war in Ukraine.

«For Putin, hacker attacks on the western power supply are a means of hybrid warfare. We shouldn’t pretend that this is just theory. We have to prepare for blackouts in Austria and in Europe.” Tanner emphasized that “by the fourth day of a power blackout at the latest, a third of the population would no longer be able to take care of themselves”.
