Europe has long lost its civilisation, abandoning Christian roots and its culture

Summary of Disinformation

There are so many abominations in Europe. There are even urinals in the streets. Liberals travel to Europe and gather these abominations. Then, they think if they behave in the same ugly manner, they will be called civilised. Europe has long lost its civilisation, abandoning Christian roots, abandoning its culture, exchanging it for the culture of migrants.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives portraying Europe as immoral, abandoning Christianity and a threat to traditional values, as well as narratives about migrants and Islamisation. The narrative of 'threatened values' is one of the most common narratives used by pro-Kremlin outlets.

Despite the dropping levels of religious practice in Europe, the majority of western Europeans still identify themselves as Christians, a 2018 survey by the Pew Research Centre shows. According to the same survey, 31% of western Europeans who identify themselves as Christians attend religious services at least monthly.
