The EU is an oligarchic entity which aims to keep post-Soviet space disintegrated

Summary of Disinformation

The European Union is a reactionary, oligarchic entity with a goal to create a unipolar world. In this context the EU views post-Soviet republics exclusively through the prism of unipolarity with the aim to keep the post-Soviet space in the state of disintegration. All EU programs, including the Eastern Partnership are designed around this idea. The sooner post-Soviet countries realize the harm of the European path, the sooner disintegration will end, and the countries will become truly independent.

Disproof

This message represents common pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives on the undemocratic EU, its aggressive policies and the Eastern Partnership Programme.

The Eastern Partnership (EaP) is a joint initiative involving the EU, its Member States and six Eastern European Partners: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. It is not against any country; it is a mutually beneficial and constructive platform for countries in the region to build a closer relationship with the EU if they choose to do so. See here for the most repeated myths about the EaP initiative.

Read earlier disinformation cases alleging that the Eastern Partnership Programme is a concealed form of colonisation and that the EU's aim behind the Eastern Partnership programme is to change the political regimes in Belarus and Russia.
