Map shows: EU on fire

Summary of Disinformation

Tweet: “Past month has been really rough on the EU, as protests, both violent and non-violent, have consumed some of the largest countries in the bloc.”

[The map shows UK, France, Spain, Norway, Belgium, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Greece.]

Disproof

An exaggeration and a sensationalist narrative, along typical pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives, seeking to exacerbate and exaggerate tensions. Demonstrations, when not violent, are part of the democracy.

Pro-Kremlin media often uses maps as a way to mislead and distort.

Norway is not an EU country.
