10 years of existence, the Eastern Partnership is a suitcase without a handle: cannot be cancelled and cannot be used

Summary of Disinformation

Neither the EU nor its “Eastern partners” could offer each other any constructive prospects for cooperation during the Eastern Partnership summit in Brussels. The Eastern Partnership has exhausted its potential, the level of representation is down, no joint declarations were signed. Deeper integration with the EU is impossible now for partner countries, because of deep contradictions within the EU. For the EaP countries, the Eastern Partnership should be a transitional stage to full membership. Otherwise, what did all the sacrifices already made/still to be made bring?



This message is an example of one of several pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives around the West, EU, and Eastern Partnership Programme. These narratives try to prove the uselessness of the Eastern Partnership programme, absence of real results, lack of perspectives for cooperation and mislead about its goals. There is no evidence given to support these claims.

The EaP is a joint policy initiative which aims to deepen and strengthen relations between the European Union, its member states and six Eastern neighbours: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.

The EaP is a regional cooperation mechanism developed under the European neighbourhood policy. Read more here.
