EU is presenting itself as a political and almost a military enemy of Russia

Summary of Disinformation

We need to understand that the European Union, as a single unit, is presenting itself now as a political and rather often almost a military enemy of Russia.


The EU does not position itself as an enemy of Russia. According to Federica Mogherini, Europe pushes for closer Russia cooperation despite the sanctions existing till today and backs, for instance, “selective engagement” with Moscow to solve conflicts http://www.politico.eu/article/eu-pushes-for-closer-russia-cooperation-federica-mogherini-vladimir-putin-war-syria/
The EU is Russia's main trading and investment partner, while Russia as the EU's fourth is also its largest oil, gas, uranium and coal exporter.
