Russia called the European Parliament resolution on countering propaganda from Russia, ISIS, and "Al-Qaeda" a “paranoia” and promised to take countermeasures in case it is implemented. The Russia’s Foreign Ministry Representative Maria Zakharova announced that to the journalists, reported by TASS.

"We regret that the processes of demonization Russia do not stop in the EU. I can’t call it otherwise than paranoia. The document is overfull with phobias, fictional messages, myths, it vividly depicts the ideology, being cultivated lately in the EU towards Russia,” says Maria Zakharova.

“There’s a reason for such a hope, because adoption of the document caused a huge wave of nonacceptance throughout the European Union. If the document is implemented in practice, the counteractions will follow,” she said.

“We stated repeatedly that Russia is not conducting any anti-European propaganda. Russia is interested in EU to be a solid, stable, predictable partner to develop coordinate and mutually-beneficial cooperation,” she announced.

Zakharova also added that the document equates “Russian anti-European propaganda” to the methods of the Islamic State terror organization, banned in the Russian Federation, which is unfair, according to Maria Zakharova.
