DISINFO: The EU will start to collapse in five years
Over the next five years, the internal split of the European Union will continue to deepen. And no later than 2040 – 2050, the European Union will cease to exist. Only the configuration of fragments resulting from this collapse is subject to discussion.
This claim exploits the coronavirus pandemic to push a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the EU's alleged imminent collapse. In 2017, the leaders of the EU countries adopted and signed the Rome Declaration setting out a joint vision for the years to come. "We have united for the better. Europe is our common future," they said in the Declaration. The EU leaders pledged to work towards a safe and secure Europe, a prosperous and sustainable Europe, a social Europe and a stronger Europe on the global scene. The European Commission is coordinating a common European response to the COVID-19 crisis and is supporting the Member States in tackling the pandemic and in mitigating its economic consequences, check HERE to follow up the progress of support between the EU institutions and the 27 member states.
