Bloomberg reported that Berlin and Paris are proposing to fight Russian “propaganda” in the European Union with the help of social networks. In particular, they propose measures that include courses and tools to circumvent censorship.
The publication clarifies that these methods are spelled out in an informal document that will be considered before the meeting of the EU Foreign Ministry on the visa issue. The document invites the EU to use “creative ways” to disseminate independent information in Russia.
In particular, the experts proposed the creation and funding of courses in Russian on literacy regarding information disseminated in the media. These courses could be distributed by bloggers on social networks such as VKontakte, Telegram and YouTube. It is also possible to use tools to circumvent Internet censorship.
Among other things, Germany and France propose to maintain open channels for communication with Moscow, despite anti-Russian sanctions and support for Ukraine.
