Haha, good one... But I think it's too much on the comedy side for a dossier. :)

The spring man of Prague is an interesting concept, I'll think about it.

For Andrej Bureš, it's cool that your friend volunteered and all, but the dossier is bland... There are several others like that already. Maybe you could add something?

It's fan fiction about actual Czech prime minister Andrej Babiš. There is more merciless version:
Name: Andrej Bureš
>ROLE: Businessman{NEWLINE}>AFFILIATION: Unknown{NEWLINE}>DETAILS: Merciless trader and former informant of communist Czechoslovak secret police. He is hoarding useful informations because of his high political ambitions. Acording to the latest informations he started trades with Red Dawn and Hybrids thanks to his contats in intelligence and business comunity. Several of his local competitors mysteriously diseapeared recently and in two cases there are reports of UFO sightings in the area. His previous competitors were usually murdered.{NEWLINE}>STATUS: Interpol notified

Edit: I have changed Czechoslovakia to Czech Republic in Springman text. Czechoslovakia split into the two sovereign states in 1993.

Name: Tatoo
Role: Russian lesbian pop duo
Affiliation: Church of Dagon
Details: This Duo's latest single "Nas nie DAGONyat" was a great hit with the Rookies. Well, until they went on a concert and noticed the hooded figure at the backstage. The whole affair turned into an ill-concealed Chucrh of Dagon recruitment drive.
Status: Interpol Notified

Name: Mystery Team
Role: Amateur mystery solvers
Affiliation: Concerned citizens
Details: This group frequently show up on mission sites hours after X-Com has cleared the area. They are frequently the target of the Salvage team's cruel practical jokes. The group's dog shows rudimentary intelligence and was once brought to base with its handler (by mistake) for study. No signs of intelligence were found in either.

Name: Grandmother Donka
Status: Blind mystic, clairvoyant and herbalist
Affiliation: Red Dawn
Details: Baba (grandmother) Donka had foretold the breakup of the Soviet block, the Chernobyl disaster, Stalin's death. She was frequently visited by Soviet and other Eastern European leaders including Brezhnev and Yeltsin. She claimed to contact the dead: “I am for them – GATES IN THIS WORLD”. She was recently kidnapped by Red Dawn.
Status: Unknown

This is inspired by Baba Vanga. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baba_Vanga
She (the real one) died in 1996 so the kidnapping above.

I like the Baba Donka article, it's just right with the amount of humour. The other two were admittedly pretty good jokes (though the Tatoo was mostly for puns), but a bit too humorous for dossiers; if they could be somehow changed into staff inputs, I'll seriously consider them.

I like the Mystery Team, it could be worked into the game if it was a bit more subtle.

Name: Grandmother Donka
[...]

Missing a word which I included. Also, is the last sentence "I am for them - Gates in this world" meant to be broken like this (as in, missing words)?
