Macron urged EU countries to abandon their sovereignty

Summary of Disinformation

French President Emmanuel Macron urged EU countries to abandon their sovereignty.

Disproof

In fact, the French president did not urge the EU countries to abandon their sovereignty. In his speech to the Bundestag he said: "Europe, and within it the Franco-German couple, have the obligation not to let the world slip into chaos and to guide it on the road to peace (...) That's why Europe must be stronger... and win more sovereignty".

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about EU' sovereignty.
