East StratCom’s efforts are not enough, - Polish Deputy Foreign Minister
12:41, 13 December 2017

All European countries should have their own agencies to deter the Russian propaganda; Deputy Foreign Minister of Poland Marek Magierowski said that at a conference in Warsaw, as quoted by BBC.     

‘In its current shape, East StratCom group is not capable of effectively fighting misinformation, fake news and other manifestations of propaganda – at least on its own,’ he said. The official expressed confidence that such agencies are necessary ‘not only for busting the myths but also for effective spread of positive information’.

The East StratCom Team is a part of the administration of the EU, focused on proactive communication of EU policies and activities in the Eastern neighborhood (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) and beyond (Russia itself). The Team was created as a conclusion of the European Council meeting on 19 and 20 March 2015, stressing the need to challenge Russia's ongoing disinformation campaigns.
