Bundeswehr cancels ILÜ training exercise 2020
The Bundeswehr announced on 30 April that it has cancelled its ILÜ information training exercise, which normally takes place in October each year at locations in Bergen and Munster.
At least 5,000 spectators usually attend the event and the decision to cancel has been taken as a precaution to prevent the further spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, after consultation with the Bundeswehr medical service and cyber information centre.
Lt Gen Alfons Mais, Bundeswehr Army Inspector, said: ‘It is extremely difficult to estimate what the situation will be in October 2020 given the current spread of the virus. However, it is very likely that the corona crisis will continue to have an impact on public life and on the troops.’
The exercise is planned to take place again in 2021.
