Summary of Disinformation

The EU is not accountable to national governments nor to its member states which cannot influence decisions of the European Council and other EU structures. The Russian threat is a pretext to maintain this control.

Disproof

No evidence given. The Council of the EU consists of ministers of all member states of the EU. The European Council is composed of the heads of government or heads of state of the member countries. Foreign policy decisions require unanimity therefore the claim of Member States having no influence is absurd.The Lisbon Treaty provides national parliaments with a say in ongoing processes in the EU.http://bit.ly/1bAGzYU.
