Moldova, Ukraine and Georgia are held by the EU in the ”waiting room”

Summary of Disinformation

Ten years ago, it was proposed to create a neighbourhood platform with the former Soviet Republics, particularly with Moldova, Ukraine and Georgia.

The idea was to attract these post-Soviet states to the EU with empty promises, based on the ideology. The EU has no money for enlargement, nor there is any political will.


Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on the EU and Eastern Partnership Programme.

This message attempts to induce the idea that Eastern Partnership is a failed initiative, without any arguments.

The Eastern Partnership is a joint policy initiative which aims to deepen and strengthen relations between the European Union, its member states and its six Eastern neighbours: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. Over the past decade, the collective efforts of the EU and the partner countries have brought considerable benefits to the citizens in spite of what widespread myths state.
