EU Parliament Approves Resolution to Counter Russian Media ‘Propaganda’
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – EPs in Strasbourg have voted on a non-legislative resolution which calls for the EU to “respond to information warfare by Russia.”
RT and Sputnik news agency have been named among the most dangerous "tools of Russian propaganda," Russia Today reported.
In the Wednesday vote, 304 MEPs supported the resolution based on the report ‘EU strategic communication to counteract propaganda against it by third parties’, with 179 voting against it and 208 abstaining.
Written by a Polish member of the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) group, Anna Fotyga, the report alleged that Moscow aims to "incite fear and divide Europe," and called for the establishment of measures to tackle the perceived Russian propaganda threat.
