Špióni v Moskvě. Nový paper O. Ditrycha

Přečtěte si aktuální policy paper Ondřeje Ditrycha "To Catch a Fogle". Případ amerického diplomata Ryana Foglea připomíná v některých dějstvích román Johna LeCarré „Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,“ píše v novém paperu pro Ústav mezinárodních vztahů. 

"To Catch a Fogle"


The Putin regime seems to have chosen to publicly expose Ryan Fogle not simply as a “tit-for-tat” for the embarrasing release of footage by the FBI of the meetings of “illegals” detained in the U.S. (2010) with Russian diplomats, but to gesture toward domestic audiences and to humiliate the U.S. in order to weaken its position in mutual negotiations, knowing that Washington may not be in the position to retaliate.

For the EU, the episode is a reminder that even in the age of cyber threats the conventional spy war is far from over.
