DISINFO: When it comes to Russia, Europe does not adhere to values
The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe coolly responded to the situation around Sputnik Estonia. When it comes to Russia, Europe does not consider it necessary to adhere to values. Europeans most likely understand that this is a part of big politics. A big process, and not just a whim of the Estonian authorities.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on the undemocratic EU and on the failed European values. As well as a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the West's deliberate anti-Russian activities and double standards. The message also contents a narrative about big conspiracy, claiming that there is a shadow policy towards Russia, and countries obediently follow that.
During the PACE winter session, the executive director of Russia Today and editor-in-chief of Sputnik Estonia claimed that there is no freedom of speech in Estonia, there is total censorship.
However, in resolution N2317, the Assembly noted that the Russian Federation should "address the problem of violence against journalists, including murders, physical attacks and threats, arrests, imprisonment, on-line harassment", "prevent police violence against journalists, as has happened during July-August 2019 demonstrations in Moscow" and "review the terms of reference of the Russian federal media regulator, Roskomnadzor, to limit its excessive power in the monitoring and censorship of the media, including on-line media; the blocking of independent media outlets without any warning or explanation, as recently happened to the Fergana news website, is an action amounting to censorship that is incompatible with the freedom of the media".
Read similar cases, claiming that the EU is a deeply undemocratic construct, and the EU is built on anti-European values, Russia is real Europe.
