European media ‘processed’ by Russian Permanent Mission to EU

"Information Resistance"According the sources of “Information Resistance” in Brussels, the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the EU has been recently conducting enhanced ideological “processing” of European media.

In particular, the editors of leading European media have been constantly receiving messages from the Russian Mission, which provides the “Kremlin” interpretation of events in Ukraine. Simply put, Russian diplomats are actively spreading outright lies and slander about the rampant “Banderites,” xenophobia and anti-Semitism in Ukraine.

These defamatory messages from the Russian Mission are signed by “Kirill Ivanov, the press attache of the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the EU.”

Below is the example of the message that is sent regularly to European journalists. The second link – is their page in Russian.

Dear colleagues,
This is to inform you that a chronological record of recent lawless actions committed by rdicals in Ukraine is available on the website of the Permanent Mission of Russia to the EU.
