Yes. On May 18 2022, the Center for Cyber Security (CFCS) raised the threat level for cyber activism against Denmark from low to medium. This is a change in the level of threats compared to recent years.

The change comes in the wake of recent pro-Russian cyber-activist attacks on European NATO countries.

In the initial phase after Russia's invasion of Ukraine, cyber-activist attacks mainly targeted Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.

In recent weeks, cyber activists have also hit targets in Western European NATO countries. The increased level of activity of the pro-Russian cyber-activist groups also increases the threat of cyber-activist attacks against Denmark.

CFCS raises the threat level on the basis of the threat from actors whose motivation to hit Denmark with cyber attacks is driven by the current war in Ukraine. CFCS assesses that it is possible that especially pro-Russian hackers will go after targets in Denmark.

The threat therefore also applies to Danish organizations or persons with relations to Ukraine who may be affected by attacks aimed at targets in Ukraine.

All Danes will notice a price increase on selected foods. At the same time, the price of feed and fertilizer will increase, which will increase the cost of agriculture.

Ukraine and Russia produce 31 percent of the global wheat market. Russia's invasion of Ukraine will therefore have an impact on all foods, including foods with wheat.

The war means that the prices of selected goods are likely to rise. It is primarily about bread and grain products.

It is too early to say how much prices will rise and when prices will fall again to the normal level we have been used to. It is important to emphasize that there will be no shortage of food in the supermarkets in Denmark, as we have strong supply chains and produce a lot ourselves.

You can read more about the importance of food prices on this page is the Danish authorities' website regarding the current crisis. Here you can e.g. find questions and answers, news and press releases related to the Danish efforts and get an overview of sanctions and Danish contributions to Ukraine. The site will be continuously updated with information in Danish, English and Ukrainian.

You can help many ways. For example by supporting humanitarian organizations and others working professionally to help Ukrainians in need. The help lasts longer if it is coordinated and takes place under orderly conditions. Therefore, it is also a good idea to think carefully about how to help in the best way.

Perhaps especially if you are considering going to the Ukrainian border to help Ukrainians to Denmark.
