“The global information flow, into which our globe has been plunged, has significantly changed the decision-making system and produced new problems. Some of them have lately been, so to speak, in public view,” Medvedev said at a ceremony in Moscow marking 90 years since the agency was formed.
Referring to the leaked US diplomatic messages he pointed out that there are both negative and positive aspects to the situation.
“This is good in some respects – at least this enables the intelligence service to employ more analytical potential and look at how your potential rivals see you. This also makes things more difficult, because it’s clear that nobody can feel safe against such problems today, and this needs to be taken into account in your current work,” Medvedev said.
