Summary of Disinformation

Western governments’ efforts to spread Russophobia are obvious but futile.

Disproof

Despite current difficulties in the relationship with Russia, the EU and its Member States have maintained a clear policy of reaching out to Russian society and youth, mainly through the Erasmus+ student exchange programme and other people to people contacts. It is worth noting that the Russian MFA's use of the word Russophobia soared massively since 2014 when the international community critizised Russia for their illegal actions in Ukraine, whereas it was barely used before that http://bit.ly/2hrHp06.
