The intensity of human intelligence operations by Russian intelligence services in Europe has decreased. Russian intelligence has shifted its focus and resources to activity in Ukraine and against it.
Russian intelligence services remain active on the Russian–Lithuanian border and pose a threat to Lithuanian citizens visiting Russian border areas. Russian intelligence services have also been showing regular interest in the military and civilian infrastructure in countries bordering Russia.
Representatives of the Belarusian democratic opposition, the regime critics, or Belarusians fleeing persecution are the priority targets for Belarusian intelligence services.
Private military and security companies controlled by Russian intelligence are exploited by the regime as an additional military capability. They are capable of carrying out tasks in military conflicts as well as during peacetime.
