Czech counter-intelligence disrupted Russian hacker spies and Hezbollah network, warns ultra-right targeting of Muslims could contribute to radicalization

The Security Information Service (BIS) and the National Headquarters against Organized Crime have detected and disrupted a network in the Czech Republic that was created by the Federal Security Service (FSB), Russia’s intelligence operation. Speaking at a security conference in the lower house last week, BIS director Michal Koudelka informed Czech legislators of the achievement. (…) During the conference, the counter-intelligence head also warned against the threat posed by right-wing extremism. According to him, while the number of active right-wing extremists in the Czech Republic has declined, it cannot be ruled out that the situation could change for the worse. Koudelka pointed out that right-wing extremists in Germany and New Zealand committed terrorist attacks this year. He said such attacks could serve to motivate other right-wing radicals elsewhere to commit such crimes of their own. The counter-intelligence head also warned that extremist crimes targeting the community of Czech Muslims could also radicalize them.
