Russia's actions undermine liberal values of the West – European People's Party

The European People's Party has accused Russia of threatening the liberal values ​​and sovereignty of Europe and called on the European Union to develop a strategy to counteract Russian information warfare.

This is stated in the draft resolution of the European People's Party (EPP), which was adopted at the end of the two-day congress held in Malta.

"EU Member States are facing an unprecedented threat to their democratic societies. Russian propaganda, disinformation campaigns and continuous support for anti-European political forces are undermining the European project, transatlantic cooperation and Western democracies in general: in terms of liberal values, political independence and sovereignty," the document says.

 The participants in the EPP congress noted that the annexation of Crimea, hybrid warfare against Ukraine, the invasion of Georgia, Russian campaigns against the Baltic States, Belarus, Moldova or even Poland, “all these pose challenges for Russia’s neighbours and undermine the peace and stability which Europe has enjoyed for decades," the resolution says.

The EPP called on the EU to put in place an effective and detailed strategy to immediately, robustly counteract Russian information warfare.
