The EU wants to weaken the power of the Republika Srpska

Summary of Disinformation

The European Commission intends to provide €1 million to involve civil society organisations in decision-making and policy-making in Bosnia and Herzegovina.  The EU intends to increase funding in order to weaken the power in the Republika Srpska and support the strengthening of the role of Muslims and Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina.  In the West, they want to support financially any protest actions against Serbian President Milorad Dodik.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory.

The European Union does not finance anti-government rallies. The funding that will be available through the Civil society facility and media programme  is aimed at strengthening cooperation and dialogue between the government and civil society in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is in fact meant to assist governments in the country to better include civil society organisations into the decision and policy-making and improve/develop their strategic documents defining cooperation with civil society and social partners (e.g. employees, employers).
