In the interview: The president of the German Domestic Intelligence Service
Germany's domestic intelligence service has reported that Russian secret services have been stepping up spying in political and economic circles in Berlin. But though it may have caused a stir, the news is not new.
The discovery of US spies in Germany's intelligence service and Defense Ministry has sparked outrage. Now German spies are calling for a boost in funds and staff directed toward counterintelligence.
Germany is planning to possibly resume counter-espionage measures against several Western allies, according to a report in the news magazine Spiegel. The report said British and US embassies could be targeted.
