    EU Parliament Adopts Resolution Equating Sputnik, RT to Daesh Propaganda

    On November 23, the European Parliament approved a draft resolution equating counteracting Sputnik news agency and RT TV channel with resistance to Daesh propaganda.

    The draft resolution on the EU strategic communication to counteract propaganda against the bloc by third parties was proposed by EU lawmaker from Poland Anna Elzbieta Fotyga.

    In order to counteract the so-called Russian propaganda, the document calls on the EU members states to cooperate with NATO to develop mechanisms of coordinated strategic communications and countering hybrid threats.
