The BIS counter-intelligence service also warns of the high number of Russian and Chinese spies operating in the Czech Republic. BIS experts say that in addition to the high number of foreign intelligence officers working in the country as diplomats, there is a growing number of those who come here under the guise of academic or business interests or who operate here briefly as tourists. Their aim, BIS says, is to consolidate and increase their influence in the county. Russian spies allegedly also try to gain the Czech media in support of their goals.
