Lets hope all this attention to russian interference doesn't prevent introspection.
The fact that the EU implies that the EU media is impartial and serious would be so funny if it wasn't so appaling.
That's a very bold claim, and one I look forward to seeing the Russians dance around denying, then flat out admit it happened.
Russia seems tp be myopic, what happened last time a bunch of right wingers came in europe.
They seem to be putting all cards in nuclear deterrence.
While I certainly believe the Kremlin is behind this, what exactly is it Russia is gaining by spreading false rumours about the dietary habits of Danish zoo animals? It seems.. oddly specific.
I find very plausible the possiblity of Russia using social networks and other means to spread destabilising news against the EU. I'm not surprised at all, and I guess we make the same against them. Bussiness as usual, isn't it? Though it's ok to make this public, if this an information war, we have to win it.
Same mentality than in the US: It just CAN'T be that Hillary lost because the people hate her and what she represents, it must be the damn Russians. Always the Russians when we fail at anything.
>"This conclusion is based on two years' work by the EU's East Stratcom Task Force, which has gathered more than 3,500 examples of pro-Kremlin disinformation, contradicting publicly available facts, repeated in many languages on many occasions."
3500 articles in few years. I guess participation award should be handed but they didn't win anything considering that 3500 articles is not even a day worth of articles or ads that keeps coming is internet sphere.
>Recent fake reports include claims that France was banning Christmas symbols, Denmark was using unwanted family pets to feed carnivores in zoos and Sweden was introducing a law requiring written consent before sex.
What about this is russian agenda ? France banning religious symbols is pretty fucking standard news about France and it is not shocking to anyone living outside of france now, Denmark thing is just bizarre and Sweden introducing law to require writter consent isn't frankly that far of from Sweden standard idiocies.
I guess EU taxpayer money well spend... not.
