Czech President’s Spy Games


The report of our senior non-resident fellow Mark Galeotti pertains to the ongoing discord between the Czech President Miloš Zeman and the country’s intelligence agency – BIS. Mr. Zeman, Mark Galeotti argues, is actively trying to discredit the agency and the agency’s director.

What are some of the methods employed by the president? How does the political sphere react to these endeavors? Are there any implications for the country and its reputation abroad?
