DISINFO: The Eastern Partnership programme is directed against Russia
The European Union uses the Eastern Partnership Programme to tear the post-Soviet countries from Russia. Under the brand of economic integration and development of EU economic contacts with the Eastern Partners, political and military expansion is taking place.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the EU Eastern Partnership. The Eastern Partnership (EaP) is a joint policy initiative which aims to deepen and strengthen relations between the European Union (EU), its Member States and its six Eastern neighbours: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine. The Eastern Partnership initiative is a mutually beneficial and constructive platform for countries in the region to build a closer relationship with the EU if they choose to do so. The EU does not demand any of its partners to make a choice between the EU or any other country. The Eastern Partnership stands for good neighbourly relations and respects the individual aspirations and ambitions of each partner country.
