Vienna is an important point for American intelligence. “More than 17 thousand diplomats live here, and everything indicates that international organizations, as well as the Russian, Iranian and North Korean embassies, are its main goals,” the newspaper writes.
According to the publication, the Americans have successfully connected to the infrastructure of the Internet site in Vienna, having the opportunity to remove the data passing through the main fiber optic cable.
In addition, Austria is not only the goal of the NSA, but also its partner. Americans pass the information they receive to local intelligence agencies.
The OSCE is the world's largest regional organization, which includes 57 countries from Europe, North America and Central Asia. Among the main objectives of the organization: conflict prevention, control over the spread weapons, protection of human rights, election monitoring and the development of democratic institutions.
