The West artificially produces hatred in the countries of ex-USSR

Summary of Disinformation

The West incites hatred among the people of countries of ex-USSR. There is politically-motivated and artificially produced hatred, which is offered as a consumer product. It was offered to those, who were the beneficiaries of the project [of the Soviet Union].

They [Western nations] need this hatred because it is a tool to create conflict, albeit uncompromising. This is a mechanism, which either forces you or seduces you to refuse your identity and allows them to take everything that belongs to you.

The Eastern Partnership initiative is not an EU accession process. Its aim is to build a common area of shared democracy, prosperity, stability and increased cooperation. The Eastern Partnership initiative provides an inclusive framework for the European Union Member States, plus Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine to cooperate notably on: (1) economic development and market opportunities; (2) strengthening institutions and good governance; (3) connectivity, energy efficiency, environment and climate change; and (4) mobility and people-to-people contacts. Each country is free to choose the level of ambition and the goals to which it aspires in its relations with the European Union.

The Eastern Partnership initiative 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 so choose. The EU does not demand that any of its partners need to make a choice between the EU or any other countries. We stand for good neighbourly relations. The Eastern Partnership respects the individual aspirations and ambition of each partner country.
