EU defence industry fund will ruin defence industries of small states

Summary of Disinformation

The EU defence industry fund, which is to distribute 500 million Euro to defence industry initiatives in the years 2019-2020, was designed to benefit defence industries in Western Europe. Smaller countries such as the Czech Republic will not gain anything, and may even lose, from the fund.


The statement is based on an interview with a Czech politician who speculates on the implementation of the fund. The declaratory title of the article is therefore misleading.
