The commander of the Special Forces Command (KSK) is criticized because last year soldiers were supposed to have been given the opportunity to return unauthorized hoarded or even stolen ammunition without further penalties. For this purpose, so-called amnesty boxes were set up on the grounds of the KSK home barracks in Calw, Baden-Württemberg.

Kreitmayr has been in command since 2018, and it has repeatedly hit the headlines due to right-wing extremist incidents. Most recently there had been a stir about the KSK because it had triggered diplomatic entanglements on a conspiratorial mission in the USA.

Wüstner warned Kramp-Karrenbauer against getting into the “old waters” of her predecessor Ursula von der Leyen.
