“EU vs. Disinfo”, which functions as the infowar outlet of the European External Action Service’s (EEAS) East Stratcom Task Force, inadvertently debunked its most important propaganda point about Russia by drawing attention to the fact that publicly financed RT’s Editor-In-Chief Margarita Simonyan has the professional freedom to voice views that […]
Russia was left embarrassed after EU foreign policy chief Borrell suddenly flipped the script on his views about bilateral relations upon returning back to the bloc after what Foreign Minister Lavrov had previously thought was his constructive visit to Moscow just days earlier, though this incident might hopefully provide the […]
It passed exactly 30 years since the first post-WWII “democratic and multiparty” elections in all six Yugoslav republics in 1990.
