In particular, the document, recently approved by the the European Parliament's Committee on Foreign Affairs, as cited by Zerkalo Nedeli with reference to Deutsche Welle, reads:
“Russia aggressively uses a wide range of tools, including special funds, broadcasters in different languages, news agencies, community and religious groups, as well as social networks and Internet trolls.
What does the Kremlin need it for? The information resource cites the arguments:
“With the help of propaganda Russia tries to ‘call into question the European values’ and provoke a split in Europe. At the same time one of the main Russia’s strategies is the falsification of history.”
The following examples have been provided: the Russian cyber attack on Estonia, disinformation campaigns after the crash of Polish presidential plane near Smolensk and Flight MH17 in Donbas, as well as after the Russian annexation of Crimea and the campaign related to the migration crisis in Europe.
The EU has begun to realize the threat of Russian propaganda only after the Russian attack on Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea.
The draft resolution of the European Parliament also notes that the ISIS propagandists attack the EU countries at the regional and global levels. In this regard, the EU considers it necessary to secure the public, especially young people, from radicalization and to block the cash flows to ISIS.
