E-000092/2019(ASW)
Answer given by Vice-President Mogherini on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-000092/2019

1. The Integrity Initiative is an initiative undertaken by a Member State, which has not been raised at EU level.

2. The East Stratcom Task Force does not cooperate with the Integrity Initiative.

The East Stratcom Task Force’s mandate, endorsed by the December 2018 European Council(1), is to raise awareness of Russia’s deliberate disinformation campaigns, many of which seek to discredit the EU and its Member States. The Task Force also works to improve the communication of EU policies in the Eastern Neighbourhood and to support pluralistic media, including through systematic outreach to Russian journalists. The East Stratcom Task Force is not engaged in anti-Russian campaigns.

The EU’s Action Plan against Disinformation, endorsed by the Heads of State and Government at the December 2018 European Council, confirms the strong evidence of Russian disinformation and the fact that it poses the greatest external disinformation threat to the EU.

3. The Vice-President does not comment further on an initiative for which the responsibility lies with the Member State concerned.
