The Federal Constitution Protection Service, which performs the functions of internal intelligence, has announced the recruitment of officers with knowledge of the Chechen language. The corresponding vacancy is posted on the website of the special service.
The main requirement for applicants is knowledge of the Russian language, and proficiency in Chechen is desirable and can increase salary. The tasks of the new employees will include the collection and analysis of information about extremists and potential terrorists in the territory of Germany.
In an interview with Deutsche Welle, the secret service representative explained that the department constantly recruits people with knowledge of various languages, so there is nothing unique in a vacancy demanding Chechen.
However, in the German press earlier there appeared information that the special services tightened control over the Chechens. Such reports were published, in particular, after the Boston terrorist attack in the United States, in which the Chechen brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were accused.
German authorities have noted a sharp increase in Chechen refugees this year. For the first half of the year 2013, the Federal Republic of Germany received about 12,7 thousands of Russians, of whom 90 percent are from Chechnya and other North Caucasian republics. In 2012, there were only three thousand of them. Some of those who had emigrated succumbed to the influence of radical Muslim movements already in Germany, which arouses concerns among local special services.
