The European Commission noted that the pandemic has shown that misleading information can cause serious harm
The Russian Federation and China during pandemic COVID-19 carried out a massive campaign of disinformation. Both countries are among the “foreign players” who seek to “undermine democratic debate” and to improve its image, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to RBC.
This was reported the Deputy head of the European Commission, Vera jourova.
“As for foreign players, we are clearly called Russia and China. We have clear evidence to make such statements,” she said.
However, she noted that the pandemic has shown that misleading information can cause serious harm.
It is also noted that the European Union will increase assistance to independent media and journalists in countries outside the community, in the fight against misinformation.
