DISINFO: The task of the European Defence Agency is to maintain NATO's war against Russia

SUMMARY

The real task of the European Defence Agency is to maintain the EU’s geopolitical interest on the continent being a part of NATO’s strategy in its war against Russia.

RESPONSE

Recurrent disinformation narrative about Western anti-Russian activities, and generally about Western belligerence. Neither NATO nor the EU nor the European Defence Agency have aggressive intentions towards Russia or any other country. As stated by NATO heads of state and government at the Warsaw Summit in July 2016, "the Alliance does not seek confrontation and poses no threat to Russia. But we cannot and will not compromise on the principles on which our Alliance and security in Europe and North America rest". More on the mission of the European Defence Agency here.
