The bill FSB, suggesting to oblige incumbents to report on family debt and relations, did not cause enthusiasm from those who have already served in office. Officers found it even offensive.

Recall that the FSB has proposed to oblige the candidates in intelligence services to report personal bankruptcy, they have themselves and their close relatives debt over 500 thousand rubles, and also indicate whether they have relatives who are married to foreigners, stateless persons or Russian citizens who live outside the country for more than 6 months during the year, or issued documents for departure for permanent residence in another country.

This is because the last time foreign intelligence agencies increasingly want to infiltrate the ranks of the FSB. In addition, personal bankruptcy can have for the security of negative consequences in case of its indebtedness.

Also, it is clarified that the procedure of recognition of the employee’s bankruptcy may threaten the disclosure of his affiliation, because personal data are subject to publication in open access. This may facilitate the recruitment of the employee, because it will be easier to approach foreign intelligence agencies or the representatives of the crime.

To comment on these initiatives “MK asked former employees of the FSB in the rank of senior officer.

– Of course, to report such facts is necessary, but all this can and should be used for the benefit of the Department. And people need to understand that the negative impact on their career is not affected. And even widen possibilities – I am sure one of our experts. – Unfortunately, in reality the opposite is happening. Not one good career officers with these “foreign relatives” broke. But caught spies among them, I personally never heard anything. In General, it is unpleasant. Employees of all intelligence services of all civilized countries ride safely in all normal countries, and we sit within the “reserve”. Apparently, in the minds of the initiators of the bill the character of an officer of the FSB is that it is possible for the gum to recruit. What can I say? What yourself and think about others.

Another commented on the bill very briefly:

Is belching “the scoop”. And there is nothing to comment on.
