Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative targeting the real value of the European Union, the reality of the Euromaidan protests, and the fact that there is substantial evidence of Russian involvement in the poisoning of Skripal and Navalny.
Ever since the 1970s, the EU has adopted an independent role in global affairs, an identity based on peace and stability and the rule of law, in addition to pursuing a foreign policy premised on achieving peace for the world, while taking into consideration that supporting democracy worldwide is a priority for the European Union, and any allegations that protests around the world are incited and/or funded by Western states, such as colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the Arab Spring revolts, Euromaidan in Ukraine, protests in Catalonia, is recurring disinformation presented with no evidence.
While some European countries have participated in armed conflict, their decision was taken independently from the EU.
Perhaps one of the biggest challenges that faced the European Union in the recent years is regarded in the reconciliation process in and with the Western Balkan region, and in North Macedonia, in addition to EU efforts to support the future of Syria and the region.
On another note, There was no coup d’état in Kyiv in 2014; this is a longstanding pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine's Euromaidan protests depicting the 2013-14 revolution as a coup d'état. It was Russia that annexed Crimea and continues to destabilise Ukraine. From the outset, the EU has supported Ukraine's territorial integrity, condemning the clear violations of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity by acts of aggression by the Russian armed forces.
And while there are no permanent standing EU forces or army, the claimant might have meant the NATO Organization which does not "expand" in the imperialistic sense as described. Rather, it considers the applications of candidate countries who want to join the Alliance based on their own national will. NATO enlargement is not directed against Russia.
Finally, the medical journal the Lancet has published detailed data on the poisoning of Navalny with a Novichok-type agent, which was corroborated by labs in France and Sweden and finally confirmed by the OPCW. Concerning Skripal poisoning incident, there was sufficient evidence to charge two Russian nationals, Anatoliy Chepiga and Aleksandr Mishkin, both Russian military intelligence operatives from the GRU.
