Czech spy agency dismantles Russian cyber-espionage network

Prague / Czech security services last year dismantled a Russian spy network that would have targeted the Czech Republic and its allies, the country’s spy agency said Monday.

“The network was financed from Russia and by the Russian Embassy and its objective, by way of a network of servers, was to attack targets in the Czech Republic and its foreign allies,” Michal Koudelka, the head of the Czech spy agency (BIS), said in a statement.

He said the network was composed of Russian pirates, some of whom had Czech nationality.

Koudelka added that those involved were listed as employees of Czech cover companies that sold hardware and software.

He said the web, which was completely dismantled, was preparing to launch cyberattacks in other European countries.

The spy chief said Russian intelligence activities presented a long-term risk for the Czech Republic and that BIS is alerted to their actions each year.

The Russian Embassy in the Czech Republic rejected the accusation and deny it had any relationship with those involved, according to Radio Prague. (October 21, 2019, EFE/Practica Español)
