EU Report Claims Russia Is Spreading Disinformation To Aggravate The West

Russian media have deployed a “significant disinformation campaign” against the West to worsen the impact of the coronavirus, generate panic and sow distrust, according to a European Union document seen by Reuters.

“A significant disinformation campaign by Russian state media and pro-Kremlin outlets regarding COVID-19 is ongoing”, the internal document said.

“The overarching aim of Kremlin disinformation is to aggravate the public health crisis in Western countries, in line with the Kremlin’s broader strategy of attempting to subvert European societies,” the document said which was produced by the EU’s foreign policy arm, the European External Action Service.

If you look at Russia’s most recent statistics there are 114 cases, 8 who have recovered with 106 active cases and no fatalities.
