Allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election have long been debunked.
The countries from the EU’s enlargement of 2004 and 2007 are a “dead weight” for the European Union. The EU acquired nearly 100 million consumers with low political culture – they are more “eaters” than innovators. These new EU citizens are extremely susceptible to manipulations – they are not used to taking responsibility for their actions.
This message is part of a larger Kremlin disinformation narrative about Eastern and Central Europe which includes messages such as the existence of full American control over this region, “colonial” status of the region, its complete economic decline, etc.
The direct accusations about 100 million inhabitants of the EU's newest member states being a “dead weight”, “eaters”, having a low political culture and lack of responsibility are groundless.
The enlargement rounds of 2004 and 2007 have been clearly perceived as an impressive success for the European Union and its new member states. After their EU accession, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe have made substantial social and economic success, turning into one of the most dynamic parts of the EU.
