Fiala says Czechs took part in international operation against Russian hackers

Czechia has been an active participant in an international operation against the activities of the Russian intelligence services, the country’s prime minister, Petr Fiala, said on social media on Friday.

The director of America’s FBI revealed on Thursday that the US and partners around the world had tackled Russian government hackers within the operation, which was named Dying Embers.

Mr. Fiala said that Czechia had to defend its cyberspace and respond to global threats in cooperation with allies and partners. Mutual trust and the ability to cooperate flexibly are key to ensuring security, he said.
