The EU is conducting a hybrid war against Moscow

Summary of Disinformation

Since the European Union is actively participating in the hybrid war against us [against Russia], it is important for us that it has no consolidated position – so that not all of them together could impose sanctions on us. […] Therefore, we are just interested in getting the European Union weakened.

The EU is not conducting a "hybrid war" against Russia. The EU's most recent policy vis-a-vis Russia has been formulated in 2016 in the Five Guiding Principles that include selective engagement with Russia on issues like migration, counter-terrorism, or climate change; or support for Russia's civil society.
