The European Union has created a web site www.euvsdisinfo.eu to combat Russian propaganda.
The resource was developed by the European task force East of the Committee on strategic communications. This team was created in 2015, after the heads of the EU member States adopted a decision on the need to fight the propaganda of the Kremlin.
On the website EU VS Disinfo developers have created several sections, which, in particular, contain notes for the refutation and analysis of common fakes. In addition, the authors describe in detail the work of existing outreach resources such as “Russia Today” and “Sputnik”.
At the moment the information on the website is available in three languages – English, Russian and German.
On 5 September the Minister of foreign Affairs of Latvia Edgars Rinkevics said that the West is unable to cope with the Russian cyber-attacks and exposure streams of propaganda from Russia.
