DISINFO: Europe is losing its values and former power
There were times when European countries were developing very quickly, both economically and culturally, but now Europe is losing its values and former power.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative undermining the EU, claiming that the EU is fundamentally broken and disintegrating - also consistent with the narrative of the EU's imminent collapse. No evidence is given to support the claim that Europe is losing its values and former power. The European Parliament’s Spring 2019 Eurobarometer, measuring public attitudes to the EU three months ahead of the European elections, reveals that despite the various internal and external challenges to the EU of the past years, the European sense of togetherness does not seem to have weakened. Continued support for EU membership goes with a strong belief (68%) that EU countries overall have benefited from being part of the EU - equalling the highest level recorded since 1983. In addition, 61% of respondents say their country’s EU membership is a good thing.
The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the European Union expanded 1.30 percent in the third quarter of 2019 compared with the same quarter of the previous year.
In addition, the latest EU public opinion survey, conducted in February 2019, highlights continued strong support for the European Union. Read similar cases attacking the EU by claiming that because of the Euro, Italy has become the poorest country of EU and that the UK referendum result will lead to the dissolution of the whole EU.
