The EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell, visited the Centre for Strategic Communication and Information Security and stressed the need to combat Russian disinformation activities.
In his opinion, it is with the help of such centres (as the CSC) that it is possible to resist the aggression of Russia, and Brussels is making efforts to do this:
“In Russia, aggression against Ukraine was accompanied by massive hybrid attacks, that is, propaganda, manipulation of information, disinformation campaigns, cyberattacks on information networks.
We must fight this disinformation. This is a high priority for the EU and Ukraine.”
Borrell noted that with its propaganda and disinformation, Russia is trying to absolve itself of responsibility for the war, denying occupation, annexation, atrocities, blaming others for the consequences of the food and energy crisis:
“We have to fight this battle, win it because it’s not just about territory, it’s about people. We must create organizations and support structures such as the one I just visited — the Centre for Strategic Communication and Information Security.”
