Russophobia, dependence, and the Belarusian gay-opposition

By EU vs Disinfo Last week, the pro-Kremlin media claimed that Russophobia is Lithuania’s main export, but in reality, it’s mineral fuels and machinery. But this case offers a great opportunity to ask, what’s the main “export” of the pro-Kremlin media? Based on the more than 70 cases of pro-Kremlin disinformation collected this past week, Russophobia is supposedly found in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the US

The Kremlin’s multifaceted strategy in France

By Nicolas Tenzer, for Disinfo Portal France’s internal political landscape is ripe for the Kremlin’s propaganda and disinformation. From the yellow vest protests to divisive electoral politics before the recent European elections, the Kremlin targets the country’s ongoing political struggles to exacerbate social divides and shift public opinion against the EU and in favor of the Kremlin. Given France’s outsized role in both European and global affairs, the potential effects

Fake: European Union Ceases to Believe in NATO and the US

European Union residents do not see any threats from Russia despite all the efforts of the US to convince them otherwise, RT declared last week. Citing a report by the Atlantic Council American think tank, another pro-Kremlin publication, Sputnik claims the US intends to create myths about Russian aggression in order to increase its influence on EU countries, but such efforts will not be successful because the European Union has

Democracy as an act of defiance

By EU vs Disinfo The people of the European Union has voted. The second largest democracy in the world, after India, and the results of the election is ready. Despite ongoing attempts to disrupt the election campaign, through lies, disinformation and computer attacks, we, Europeans, elected our representatives to the European Parliament with the highest turnout in twenty years. Right Wing, Left Wing, Centrists, Liberals, Conservatives, Eurosceptics, Euroenthusiasts, Pragmatists, Visionaries,

The half-truth, a little of the truth and a lot of stuff besides the truth

By EU vs Disinfo Sometimes facts can be disinformation. Taken out of context, a quote, a number, a statement or a picture can be deceiving, while factually correct. Lies work more effectively, when they are supported by something factual; something real, something true. A picture, published by the pro-Kremlin disinformation outlet Sputnik, is a good example of this. Two smiling young men, in front of the burning Notre Dame. The

Figure of the week: 52.8%

By EU vs Disinfo Proverb of a pro-Kremlin outlet: if 52.8% of respondents don’t fit into your story, just ignore them. On April 28th, RT wrote: “A Bertelsmann Foundation study found that right-wing parties with a populist, nationalist or Euroskeptic bent received the highest level of voter approval of any single political grouping. 10.3 percent of voters said they would cast their ballots for right-wing parties, while only 6.2 percent said

A disillusioned democrat

By EU vs Disinfo It is now five years since the EU began to introduce sanctions against individual key actors in Russia’s aggression in Ukraine. One of the names to appear on the EU’s lists was that of Dmitry Kiselyov.
