Disinfo: No proof of Russian interference in elections in the US and Europe


The European Parliament analysed the influence of Russia on elections in foreign countries. The authors of the study wrongly accuse Moscow of interfering in the affairs of the United States, Great Britain, France and other states. By doing so, Brussels is preparing for the possibility for anti-systemic parties to get more votes. If it happens, it will blame Russia for interference again. Accusing Russia of everything has become a kind of fashion trend in the West.



Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the West blaming Russia for everything, and trying to divert attention from the real problems by doing so.

There are numerous reports investigating meddling in elections across Europe in the US, which have already proven Kremlin's participation in meddling. See here for the list of the reports and here for the US Senate report outlining various meddling attempts in different countries.

Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.

US-led coalition strike in Syria targets civilians, killing 50

At least 50 people were killed in a US-led coalition airstrike on a civilian camp near Baghouz village in Syria, one of the few remaining ISIS enclaves.


The story advances a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative of war crimes perpetrated in Syria by the US and its allies, and provides no evidence of any civilian deaths resulting from the coalition's offensive on Baghouz. The report is based on an article by SANA, the regime-controlled Syrian news agency which cites "local sources" as saying that the strikes "targeted" civilians escaping from the area.

The article fails to mention that the Baghouz operation was preceded by an evacuation of around 20,000 civilians from the surrounding areas, led by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces [SDF]. As a number of women and children remain in the ISIS-held enclave, SDF troops are advancing on the ground specifically to minimize casualties, with air support from the International Coalition.

European Parliament decides practically nothing in the EU

The European Parliament decides practically nothing in the modern structure of the political power of Europe.


The European Parliament is one of the to EU law-making bodies. Since 1979, it is directly elected by EU voters every 5 years. The last elections were in May 2014.

Parliament has constitutional-type and ratification powers. It passes EU laws, together with the Council of the EU, based on European Commission proposals. It has budgetary powers, scrutiny over the executive, it hears citizens’ petitions, and appoints the European Ombudsman. A detailed overview of the European Parliament’s role in the European decision-making process can be consulted here.

The EU was invented in the Third Reich and created by US agents

One of the EU founders (Walter Hallstein) was a “star of jurisprudence” in the Third Reich, who developed the legal foundations of a unified Hitlerian Europe; other two EU founders (Robert Schuman and Jean Monnet) were paid agents and puppets of the US State Department. The main goal was to prevent the union of France and Germany and make Europe fully submissive to the United States.

The US State Department is also the cause of all current problems of the EU – erosion of national identities, renouncement of the Christian heritage, destructive tolerance for migrants.
