EU foreign service and Ukraine are involving experts to help counter Russia’s anti-Western propaganda. The agreement was conducted in Brussels yesterday, as states Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin. European External Action Service spokesperson Catherine Ray has also confirmed this information during the briefing in Brussels. European foreign service set up a special group to counter propaganda from the Russian Federation on the basis of the decision of the European Council and communication strategy on the "Eastern Partnership".
Earlier official Europe stated that Russia’s use and misuse of communication tools has played an important role in the dramatic political, economic, and security-related developments in the EU’s eastern neighborhood in the past 18 months.
Europe tapped the so-called Open budget line in 2015 to 2020 for targeted training and capacity building of journalists and media actors in countries such as Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine.
