EU increased funding for working group to combat "propaganda of the Russian Federation"


The negotiations on the EU budget for 2018 for the first time provided funding for strategic communications, which will be used for priorities. In the context of this financing, the work of the (working group) will be strengthened. The work will be strengthened, the preparation has already begun
- said Kosyanchich.

The European Union in March 2015 announced the creation of a group of specialists that should "resist the distortion of information about the policies of the European Union" in the Russian-language media space. First of all, the EU’s Eastern Partnership countries — Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine — were to become the target audience for this structure.

In November 2016, the EP adopted a resolution entitled “EU Strategic Communications as a counter to third-party propaganda”, prepared by Polish Deputy Anna Fotiga. According to her, Moscow "is actively using a wide range of tools and instruments, including special funds, multilingual television channels, news agencies, social media and Internet trolls, to attack Western values ​​and disunite Europe." The resolution specifically mentioned RT television channel, Sputnik agency, as well as the Russkiy Mir Foundation and Rossotrudnichestvo, reports TASS.

      Mr. Chikatilo was also afraid! But was it respected?
      They just do everything under the dictation of the USA! With respect or with fear, this is in no way connected! But for the USA this is a business!

    At least they called the amount, and it’s a shame it would be embarrassing to know that rich Europe was able to scrape together a penny to fight us, because they also have their own Vedmedev, who told the Europoids "mani nain, but ffs tterzhyydtees"! crying lol

    It would be better in the EU to spend this money on the purchase of normal human brains capable of really perceiving everything that is happening around.

      hi
      But in the "Europe" in different ways. Many of their members for a reasonable dialogue with Russia, while for the partial lifting of sanctions with the complete lifting of the counter-sanctions imposed by Russia. These are hit by the Oder flood. We did not start the war of sanctions, but we will be the last to complete it. And to talk - why not.

        Yes, yes, I noticed what Wishlist they have about us, like we’ll let you sit on the edge of our bench and we will use your tobacco “together”.
        It’s better to break them off right away, otherwise you won’t notice how the pouch is empty, and you’ll be pushed out of the bench so friendly !!!

    That's because freebie work - pick out anything from your nose and call it “Russia's wiles”. The ancient Greeks coined the word "Sinecure" to work in the style of "Do not hit the bed." I thought that there was a lot of “work” than that guy who scratches turtles on an uninhabited island for money; Wrong - that's even cooler!

    They create commissions, blow their cheeks, and they only have one way to deal with Russian propaganda - a blunt ban and restriction of broadcasting of pro-Russian channels. Shameful stupid.
