Wednesday, 23 October 2019 - Strasbourg Revised edition

General budget of the European Union for 2020 - all sections (A9-0017/2019 - Monika Hohlmeier, Eider Gardiazabal Rubial)

  Tatjana Ždanoka (Verts/ALE). – Mr President, I voted in favour of the general budget because it supports programmes for youth, science, climate projects, but I am against some positions in Block 15.

I am sure that those who agreed to give taxpayers’ money for the product provided by the East StratCom Task Force did not see it at all since nobody in their right mind would pay for such a disgusting product called Disinformation Review. Where do the facts come from for this Disinformation Review? Where is the false data demonstrated? Nowhere. Just assertions that there are exaggerations in presentations of the real facts – but who can measure exaggerations?

One recent example from my State, Latvia. StratCom exposes misinformation in the following text of Sputnik Belarus: Latvian StratCom companies struggle because of their Russian counter sections, but it is the truth and the Latvian media reflects and states the same information, but while Latvia media are reporting well, Belarus are reporting badly
