The conflict is quite clear, Europeans are trying to weaken Russia because of its capabilities.
The coronavirus has proven, how Europeans fought and wrestled over protective materials, and how Russia intervened to help Italy.
Russia is currently providing the vaccine to most countries around the world without any profits, in contrast to what Europe and the United States are doing by using their vaccines as a pressure card against third world countries.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative claiming that the EU left Italy and other countries alone to fight coronavirus and that Russia was the first to help. This narrative aims to undermine European and transatlantic solidarity in face of the crisis and is in line with the Kremlin's long-standing goal of weakening the EU and the transatlantic alliance.
While Russia has indeed sent a military team to Italy, there are numerous examples of solidarity in the Western world, including among the EU and the individual Member States.
