Summary of Disinformation

The European Parliament is preparing to adopt a resolution on “combating ideological diversion”. Its purpose is to ban Orthodox “propaganda”. These actions are aimed at all the Orthodox EU countries. The EU is more favourable towards Islam.

Disproof

This disinformation was widely spread in Bulgarian pro-Kremlin outlets. The resolution referred to is about strenghtening EU strategic communication to counteract anti-EU propaganda by third parties. Not once does it mention the word Orthodox.The resolution also specifically lists propaganda from islamist terror organisations as a threat. Islam is only mentioned in the meaning of radical islamism, the resolution does not speak of Islam in any other way. bit.ly/2fai3Uv, . Detailed debunking at Stopfake bit.ly/2gbgWR4,
