    The European Parliament declared Russia's information war

    MEPs adopted a resolution on "Strategic communication of the EU as a counter-propaganda of the third parties." The document, which is Advisory in nature, primarily directed against Russia. The authors of the text, offering to fight "misinformation" and calling to restrict the access of European citizens to a number of Russian media and organizations insist that such actions are taken for the sake of freedom of information.

    According to the drafters of the resolution, Russia is pursuing a "hostile propaganda" and strongly supports the opposition parties and organizations in the EU. The majority of MEPs did not bother to even call to counter propaganda "from Russia and Islamic terrorist groups", actually puts Russia on a par with global extremism. However, although in Moscow such a gesture from Europe is not happy, appeals to repay to partners the same coin sound. President Vladimir Putin said that Russia is "trying to teach democracy, but a ban is not the best way". The Russian leader expressed hope that common sense will prevail after all.

    As told "Izvestia" Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev, the new resolution does not hold water.

    — Suffice it to recall that at the stage of preparation there was the odious factual errors. For example, a news Agency called channel. In resolution, there are no facts that would prove the existence of the information war to blame Russia. If they were, then the relevant Russian journalists have long worn out would be through the courts. This is not because the facts, operated by the Russian media, is impeccable. It turns out, in the European Parliament are not fighting with the distortion of facts and their interpretation and presentation. But this may not be the subject of counteraction. Colleagues in the European Parliament demonstrate the worst methods of the world socialist system, when it is already on our side, the real facts tried by all possible means, to cut off the end consumer in the USSR and other socialist countries. Doing that now MEPs. This is low-quality policy, — said Konstantin Kosachev.

    The Senator noted that Russia is no longer Soviet Union and do not conduct information warfare, "provides in accordance with the European values the access of Russian consumers of information to any interpretation of the facts".

    — We have to stay with it. I consider excessive to restrict the activities of foreign mass media towards Russia artificially as long as this activity stays within the law. We must be models of adherence to the values of freedom of speech, freedom of the press, which our European colleagues like to say, but that is definitely not committed in practice. This proves the resolution aimed to fix in the minds of Western people distrust the Russian media. This is an information war from the European Parliament. Do not rule out that behind the text there are specific lobbyists, piercing the funding for the Western media, — said Konstantin Kosachev.

    Among the "instruments of propaganda" in the resolution refers to the Federal Agency "Rossotrudnichestvo" under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation. According to the head of the Agency Lyubov Glebova, to equate Rossotrudnichestvo to the tools of propaganda is completely unacceptable.

    The centre establishes and develops relations between ordinary people, a kind of "human bridges". The Agency is not propaganda. The main tools that we use are the promotion of Russian culture and the Russian language, Russian education, support of compatriots, work with young people. Realizing all these areas, we strive to maintain a trusting relationship with all partners and people, in whatever country they may be, with all those who are interested in Russia. Perhaps that is why we are afraid of all those whose head is firmly entrenched aggressive image of Russia who are not ready to hear and listen to an alternative point of view about Russia — said Lyubov Glebova "news".

    In turn, the special representative of Russian President for international cultural cooperation Mikhail Shvydkoi believes that the actions of MEPs did not differ foresight and can at some point reach the point of absurdity.

    — This resolution means recognizing the effectiveness of the Russian institutions. But it is meaningless. The activities of all these media organizations is determined by international agreements and the legislation of certain countries. Usually, this kind of things exist on a reciprocal basis. Imagine that closed Russian centre of science and culture in any country of the EU. In response we will close the accounting centre of the country. Is it good for the citizens? Do we make similar statements? It is possible to make. But I work with many foreign institutions and would not recommend to our parliamentarians to make statements against them, because they bring many benefits to the Russians. Such a resolution — a stupid act. Then it is necessary to prohibit Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Chekhov — they are the main "advocates" of cultural values of Russia, — said Mikhail Shvydkoi in an interview with "Izvestia".

    Their days are numbered, there will be elections soon in many EU countries from December this year through 2017: Austria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Netherlands. We can be sure that right wing/conservative/eurosceptics will rise (or better still, form a government). These will probably revert the current Russophobia, as Trump will also likely do.

    While lecturing other countries about democracy, freedom of speech, etc... banning Russian press.

    Western "freedom of speech" exists as long as it serves their interests.

    Moscow has blasted as “outrageous twisting of the facts” a statement by EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, who said the EU was the only party providing aid to Syria.

    “It's outrageous twisting of facts which ignores what Russia has been doing for a long time,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said.

    The Russian Foreign Ministry also officially responded to Mogherini’s statement “with surprise,” and said that Russia, “unlike other international players, is actively supplying thousands of tons of humanitarian aid to various regions in Syria, including the liberated areas in eastern Aleppo, at the risk of Russian military lives.”

    “If the high representative [Mogherini] means providing assistance to terrorists and extremists, then we don’t participate in this, indeed,” the statement added.

    The Russian official's statement comes after the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said in Berlin on Wednesday, that the EU “are the ones – the ones, not among the ones – that are providing humanitarian aid, in Syria and around. I don't see many others doing as much as we are.”

    RT’s Peter Oliver asked Mogherini to expand on her comments at the OSCE summit in Hamburg, but received no answer.

    Mogherini's words aren't the first aimed against the Russian humanitarian effort in Syria: last week, British Prime Minister Theresa May's office said that “the Syrian regime and their influencers [be it Russia, or others] are preventing aid” from reaching Aleppo.

    In response, Russian Ministry of Defense spokesperson Major General Igor Konashenkov said that “the UK government has lost an objective view of what is happening in Syria, including Aleppo, due to Russophobia,” adding that the UK has not sent “a single gram of flour, any medicine or blankets to help” civilians in Aleppo during the whole Syrian conflict.

    “If the UK government really wants to send humanitarian aid to residents in the eastern neighborhoods [of Aleppo], it has all conditions for doing this, just tell us where it [the aid] has been held up."

    Also last week, the Russian Ministry of Defense said that the UN halted its aid deliveries to Aleppo, after over 40 percent of the territory previously controlled by militants was recaptured by Syrian government forces.

    Deputy Foreign Minister Ryabkov also slammed the UN aid effort in Syria.

    “While the UN humanitarian plan is something that exists on paper, experts on international relations and humanitarian specialists in Geneva inexplicably missed dozens of opportunities to join the humanitarian work to ease the plight of Aleppo, its outskirts, and other regions in Syria," he said, as cited by TASS.

    At the end of November, Konashenkov said that “only through the Russian Syrian Reconciliation Center was thousands of tons of humanitarian aid delivered to Aleppo, Hama, Homs, Damascus, Latakia, Palmyra, Deir ez-Zor, and other cities.”

    NATzO bullshitters spewing lies and claiming credit for all the good in the world. Truly, Satan's spawn.
